We have all heard the proverbs, “Nice guys finish last”, “When you are nice people take your kindness for weakness”, and for the ladies, “behind every bitch is a man who made her that way.” In life bad things are going to happen to you that are of no fault of your own. It is how you deal with them that will determine your happiness. If you are a nice person you should continue to do so regardless how other people might treat you. Even if you are generally not a good natured person (everyone thinks they are a good natured person but there are others that know they’re souls are made of dog shit) being nice can be very helpful in marketing your most lucrative product to the world, You!
Although being nice might not pay the bills it could make you wealthy in other areas of your life. Being genuinely nice to everyone you meet will only increase your chance of success. It’s just plain statistics the more opportunities you create and more connections you make the better your chances. Life is a people game, that’s how human beings as species made as far as we did today…BY WORKING TOGETHER TO HELP EACH OTHER OUT AND GROWING TOGETHER. In your journey to success you may be taken advantage of, passed over, and/or rejected a thousand times. But you should still stay true to yourself because when that one opportunity comes along that changes your life whether it be the girl of your dreams or the career of your dreams, it will all be well worth the struggle, pain, aggravation, frustration, and _________ <—- Insert your own negative emotion here.
However if you become bitter and change because someone wronged you it could have negative consequences. That person that wronged you may later realize that they made a mistake and that you are the right/good person and decide to give you the chance they did not. Even good people can make mistakes and do bad things to people. You also have to take into consideration that other old saying “Hurt people, hurt people” the other person could be in a great deal of pain and took it out on you. It may have had nothing to do with you, so do not make it about you. Be empathetic and think of what the other person is dealing with during this time as well. It is your ability to GET OVER IT AND MOVE FORWARD that will make the difference in that relationship in the future whether it’s business or romance. Of course there are other times when you must realize you are at fault and take responsibility. Pointing fingers never solves anything but that’s another blog topic for another time. However if you changed the person you were when this person first met you, you might not be the same person this person wants to do business with or fall in love with and you will come off as fake, childish, or even worse out right bi-polar psychotic…..Do not be bi-polar psychotic. Be nice all the time, you do not know who someone is and how they can help you or more importantly how YOU can help them, after all giving is the essence of life and it is far better to give then to receive but once again that’s another blog topic for another time. People like stability in personalities, especially nice ones. It will make your life awesome one day!
