This month we are talking about the ability to see behind your initial instincts that make certain generalizations when you meet new people. We are all humans, we all make mistakes, we all do good things, we were all hurt by someone else and felt happy, loved, threatened, sad and depressed.
Just because someone sin differently than you, doesn’t give you power over them.
Thinking that you have power over someone because you are smarter, richer or better educated is the sign of stupidity. You never know that someone from Harvard is smarter than someone who is street smart and who can out-work them, trick them or manipulate them in ways you can never even think of.
Moreover, just because someone has more money doesn’t prove that he is smarter, a better person or more valuable than you are. I’ve met tons of rich people in New York who were just lucky, at the right place in the right time or even rude, stupid and ignorant, but they think only because they have more zeros on the bank account than me their opinion matters more.
Oh, what a pity I feel for them, what a foolish mistake they are making. Do you think illness doesn’t attack rich and smart? If it was like that, Steve Jobs would still be here with us today, changing history. Do you think just because someone is really pretty, they have it easier than you because everyone is in awe when they walk into the room. Don’t be so shallow. I dare you to force yourself to look deeper. To search for real truth. The real meaning of things in life.
Manage your ego, it is like a dog, either you are walking the dog or the dog is walking you.
