Quietly

Here’s an unusual but powerful way to add value: when the rest of the world (or at least the rest of the people in the meeting) are flying off the handle, we can remain calm. We need not say anything. We only need to stay present, breathing. They may not acknowledge or even recognize what we’re doing. But the impact can be profound.

 

In your corner,

Pushy People, Success, and Obstacles

Successful people have a special relationship with obstacles: they push through them.

Unlike people who are just pushy, angry, or demanding, the truly successful people maintain a quiet insistence. (They may also be pushy, angry, demanding or they may not be.) They cultivate an unreasonable knowledge that they will overcome this and all obstacles.

You can tell the difference between the truly successful and the merely pushy. Obstacles multiply for the pushy. They melt away for the successful.

In your corner,

Mike

PS: Can I become quietly confident of my success? You bet. Practice writing ladders.  Write your current state on the bottom of the ladder and being quietly confident on the top.
