ACTIONS > WORDS
It’s very easy to take what is said on face value – but ultimately human beings will always do what’s best for THEM
This does not make them bad people
This does not make them good people
It simply makes them….
Humans will always retreat from pain and be attracted to pleasure; what is said is not always what is meant or done
I know this because I myself have applied a ‘gloss’ back in the day to my words to make others happy when deep down I knew what I wanted/what my agenda was
I am human after all
Now I find myself being more blunt and ‘filter free’ because in the long run you will either fuck up or hurt someone or ruin your reputation if you do not
Old me use to go full rage when I felt I had been misled
Now I try and approach it with quiet pragmatism and looking at things from the OTHER persons point of view
I got sales from my dad
I got empathy from my mum
Every single human has wants and needs and desires and we have no right to impart OUR beliefs on them
Taking time to see why people do (or don’t do ) what they say and looking at it both critically and with empathy is key to growth
We all Get dealt a hand of cards in the game of Life
It’s up to us how we play them
Do we go all in?
Do we hit the dealer up for another card?
Do we fold?
That is a choice we are all confronted with many times a day
And no person – me included – has the right to interfere with your choices
You just have to to what’s best for you and hope it works out
Above all I say this
The more you keep your word to yourself – and others – life tends to improve
