Always needing to be right

truth in business comic

Is there anyone more tiresome than someone always needing to be right?

I see over and over the empty vacuum of people on LinkedIn and social media who only post things that they know will be approved. You don’t help people grow by only telling them what they want to hear. In fact, that is fastest way to being unhappy and stupid.

Most people just harp on what they want to believe and facts be dammed. They ignore, minimize or don’t respond when facts are presented that they can’t argue with. It is not my goal or purpose to convince anyone, but I find the resistance to facts interesting.

At times when you present the truth you will lose your job. That is life. I have to speak the truth no matter what the consequences. Truth needs to be spoken to those in power or they will never understand their own cruelty and lack of compassion.

Do not be naïve. When you disagree with those in powers opinion they will find a way to silence you. Or you can move on and find people who are more openminded and less committed to a limited and toxic view of the world.

If you want to be exploited in business it is easy. Never disagree with anyone, and do exactly what everyone asks you.
