We’re raised to be nice, and for good reason. #Niceness is safe. It’s excellent at maintaining the status quo. Nice people are conscious of what might #upset others, and avoid such things. Which is deadly if you want to accomplish anything of significance. If your #mission is to lead, create, or better the world, surrendering to the emotional concerns of others will paralyse and kill you. #Leaders that can’t make tough decisions can’t lead. #Artists that can never offend anyone can never delight anyone either. This is not to say that being an #asshole will make you successful. But an unwillingness to occasionally be one is an almost certain road to failure. http://ift.tt/2u4w4Jx
