The following barrage of Truth Bombs was acquired over the first 35 years on this planet and once I learned and accepted the first one, my life changed forever.
Most people in positions of authority don't know what they are doing Most high ranking Government officials and Corporate Leaders find themselves in these positions because of who they know-not what they know.
Most people are not intelligent People can be educated, but it's not the same as intelligence or "street smarts"
Most people are lazy. People will always want to do the very least to just get by
Most people are selfish or self-centered. WIIFM (what's in it for me) mentality, with no concern for the bigger picture or for those that might be affected by their actions.
Most people are not honest. I'm not talking about small lies we all tell from time to time, instead its how one lives or portrays themselves in public. As an Accountant I have had to deal with the financial realities of individuals and companies that are the complete opposite of their public persona's. Authenticity Matters.
Most people will never admit when they are wrong. Instead of admitting and learning from their errors, they continue by blaming external issues.
Most people are afraid to admit when they don't know something. Usually at work, especially in new hires with inflated CV's, afraid of facing backlash or their own limitations. The best employees are usually the honest one's and the one's that start from the bottom.
Most people think short-term. In Business, this truth bomb runs rampant. The quick buck/easy fix mentality has ruined many a business and casual investor. It's harder to do the homework, look over the horizon and settle in for the long haul. This is especially true in our current Fascist situation.
Most people are not patient. I am the biggest offender and still working on it. We need to learn to temper our expectations and be more realistic with one another.
Most people avoid taking Risks. You miss 100% of the chances you don't take. Taking risks and dealing with failure can be the best sources of growth and education. In movies and TV, we always admire those that cut their own path or separate from the herd (pun intended) to win out in the end.
If you've joined our community, chances are you are not like most people. We are growing quickly now as more and more people realize things will not change overnight. Thank you for Not being like Most People..
