Recently I’ve been getting somewhat tired of all the people on Facebook claiming to be ‘Kings’, and ‘Lions’. You know the ones, generally they write it in CAPITALS. The ones for whom Facebook has become a platform to feed their narcissism, where they can chest beat and get comments like, ‘on it brother #thebeast’, ‘beautiful’, ‘amazing, ‘inspirational’ (real comments). They are missing the point that there are actually three types of people:
- Sheep dogs
Most people are sheep, they need to be led, they follow. That’s OK. There’s nothing wrong with that.
Some people are wolves. Wolves chest beat, they prey on the sheep; these are the majority of ‘lions’ and ‘kings’ on Facebook.
And some people, the rare ones, are sheep dogs. They protect the sheep, they lead them, they make sure they are OK.
What are you? And what do you want to be?
Don’t mistake chest beating for self worth, making big claims for inspiration, dominance for leadership.
When we want something, we are taught to visualise that thing, to focus on that image, until we have it.
There’s almost never a completely clean run.
Sometimes wonderful things take you by surprise, they open a new door.
Have you ever moved into a new house and seen something that needed fixing and thought “I’ll get on to that soon”?
Humans are tribal.
As humans we have an insatiable desire to explain untoward events so we can get on with solutions.
In any field, most of the rewards go to the top 5% of people.
I say please to Siri.
If a turkey were to assess the state of the world in early December, they would be forgiven for thinking all is well and that the farmer loves them.
We often compare today’s performance relative to yesterdays.
