Five signs the problem is you

By Workopolis

Are your work relationships difficult? Is your job hard to do because everyone around you is incompetent? Is everyone a jerk? Is hell other people? Is the man keeping you down?

Maybe. Or maybe not.

Full disclosure: when I was younger, I thought I was smarter than everyone else. Eventually I realized that they weren’t stupid. I was. It was a hard lesson. But I’m glad I learned it. I have to say I know some people who have yet to do so.

Here are six indicators that the problem isn’t everyone else, it’s you. If you see yourself here, don’t feel bad. I understand. I’ve been there.

Everyone else is an idiot. Seriously. How can people be so stupid all the time? How did these people even get hired? They don’t even know how to do their own jobs. And the clients? They’re all boneheads who don’t know what they want or what’s good for them. You feel like the one intelligent person who was dropped into a land of imbeciles.

If everyone around you is so dumb you can barely handle it, the problem is likely you.

People are really smart. Not all people but lots of them. They invented math and science and toilets and the internet. Did you invent any of these things? No? Then maybe you’re not the smartest person in the world. You need to learn to listen and realize that maybe you’re not right about everything.

You have to do everything yourself. Because if you didn’t do it, someone else would mess it up, right? And nobody else is doing their job properly. You have to take care of everything. How does anyone manage to do anything when you’re not around?

You might have control issues.

People all over the world, and probably even in your workplace, are accomplishing things without your help and those things are turning out just fine. Great even. Step back, take a breath and give people their due. Let go. Nobody wants to work with a control freak.

You’ve had an endless run of difficult bosses. Your boss is a total jerk, your previous boss was a bonehead, and the one before that was a twit. They’re always putting you on projects that are a waste of time and you know for sure you could do their jobs better than they all can. With your eyes closed. And one hand tied behind your back.

Guess what: your next boss is going to be an incompetent nincompoop. They’ll be horrible bosses until you realize it’s you who needs to learn to deal with authority and criticism.

Someone is always standing in your way. You couldn’t finish the spreadsheet because Bob didn’t get you the numbers and that report wasn’t done on time because Mary didn’t give you the information you needed. You couldn’t make copies because Mark was hogging the machine. You shouldn’t have to work around everyone else’s incompetencies. It’s not your job.

It’s also probably the public transit’s fault that you’re always late, and your friend’s faults that you have difficult relationships.

If everything is always someone else’s fault, it’s possible that you have a slight issue with taking personal responsibility. People who blame everything on others are very unpleasant to be around and, of course, to work with.

Nobody else knows how to communicate. People are so difficult to talk to. Everyone has an attitude, they don’t listen and they never seem to understand what you’re trying to get across. You’re always at an impasse and conversations often seem to escalate into arguments.

Look around you. Is everyone arguing with everyone else or only with you? If that’s the case, it’s time for you to take some sort of course on how to communicate, or risk a very serious negative effect on your career.

Everyone is behaving badly. Jim is cheating on his wife, with Caroline from accounting of all people. Melanie doesn’t know how to raise her kids, Bethany has a gambling problem, Ian has been yoyo dieting for years but everyone knows he stuffs his face with chocolate cake at his desk when he thinks nobody is looking, and Paula’s love life is a mess. She really needs to get it together and stop sleeping around.

Why do you know all this? It’s none of your business. The office gossip is at best out of line and at worst a scourge.

Even if everyone else is talking behind everyone’s back, it’s the wrong way to behave. In this case, you’re all the problem. Learn to mind your Ps and Qs, as they say.

Every once in a while it’s true that the problem is other people. But, honestly, that’s rare.

Look around you very carefully. If everyone else is an idiot, the truth is that the problem is probably you.

Quotes from the book “Act! 10 commandments of success "Itzhak Pintosevich - LitRes

Quotes 256

All people want something. Desires move us through life. There are two basic desires that govern the life of mankind. They are hidden in the depths of all other desires: the desire to receive pleasure and the desire to avoid suffering. Most move through life intuitively, focusing only on these two signals. Pleasure and pain. Or rather, on their internal ideas about what will bring pleasure and what will bring suffering. But, unfortunately, we only see what is under our noses. Therefore, a person suffering from obesity does not refuse an extra portion right now. It would be a pain for him to refuse her. He does not see the great suffering that awaits him ahead when the weight steps over 100 kg. He does not see early death from cardiac overload and obesity. He sees only the pleasure that he will now receive, and thinks only of the suffering that he will now avoid. This is how our emotional mind works. It creates chaos in life.

Either you write the plan and script of your life yourself, or you play the role of extras and extras in someone's play. Only the responsibility still lies with you, even when other people control your life. And just because you wrote in your short script: I WILL DO AS OTHER PEOPLE TELL ME. The next cue of artists of this kind will be: NOTHING DEPENDS ON ME. THEY ARE GUILTY ... Everyone chooses a role to their liking. Some sit on the podium, while others play on the court. Both those and others die, and sometimes ahead of time and always earlier than you want.

Life Purpose Exercise No. 2

This exercise is recommended by Stephen Covey in order to write down your life mission, your constitution, in accordance with which you will act. You need to be guided in life by a program that you create for yourself. This gives inner balance and strength. Sit comfortably, take a piece of paper and a pen. Close your eyes and imagine that you are at a funeral. There are many people around. You approach the dead. You look into his face and see ... that it's you. You've lived long enough. Many people came to your funeral. Now the farewell speeches will begin. Describe what kind of person the deceased was. The wife / husband, children, friend, neighbor, people with whom the deceased worked will perform. What will they say? What would you like them to say? Imagine in detail their speeches and write them down.

You can't have a new life and stay the same. Today you have something that exactly matches your image. What you have is the consequences of how you act, think, believe and what is important to you. Change - and your environment will change!

“There is nothing like a dream to create the future. What seems like a utopia today will become flesh and blood tomorrow.” Victor Hugo

First they ignore you, then they start laughing at you, then they start attacking you, then you become a winner. Mahatma Gandhi, politician, philosopher

How to do it? How to learn to get out of the “comfort zone”, push it apart so that all actions are comfortable? First, at the level of logic, you need to get rid of the fear of failure and the fear of looking bad. That is, remember everything that is written in this book in the chapter “Overcome fear”. Then you need to transfer understanding to the level of physical sensations. The solution is to experience pleasure when you leave your “comfort zone”. You begin to move through life, guided by common sense and enjoying everything new. There are very happy people who develop rapidly and are always one step ahead. They reprogrammed their worst habit. "Normal" people are used to coming back, while extraordinary people enjoy the fact that they realize new opportunities, make new acquaintances, etc. How to do it? There are three ways to enjoy getting out of the "comfort zone". You need to apply them, and preferably all three at once, at EVERY moment of discomfort from NEW actions or changes for 49days. In this case, I guarantee you a new sense of life, self-confidence and freedom in a way that you, dear reader, could not even imagine in your wildest fantasies! Just remember: the “comfort zone” can only be expanded little by little. Do not immediately jump far into the "stress zone". Feel a slight discomfort, which indicates that you are out of your "comfort zone", and immediately begin to enjoy.

We do things that harm us. We do most of the time (80% according to the Pareto law) empty things. There is no time to dream. No time to plan. You have to work, respond to the near threats of suffering and try to get momentary pleasures.

The main thing is to start telling the truth about yourself and your life. Then you will make the correct diagnosis and be able to cure the disease. It was you who made yourself poor, sick and lonely, or rich, happy and healthy. Your actions lead to such deplorable or magnificent results. The results don't lie. If you are fat, then it is not the diets and doctors that are to blame, but the way you eat. Which diets YOU CHOOSE. The doctors you choose. Once you say it, you can win. After all, the reason is in you, and you can control yourself!

Most people who don't achieve their goals say they don't know how to act. Where to start? Nobody taught them business, success. How can a person born in a family where parents divorced and then divorced one more time know how to build a happy family? How to get divorced, he knows perfectly well, but how to build relationships - no.
