Kindness is not a currency

Kindness is not a currency

September 10, 2019

When you regularly interact with people who are rude, arrogant and imposing, what do you think?

We’ll tell you what we think.

Those of a large stature, covered in tattoos, flashy condescending executives or “harder than nails tradies” but act like dickheads? And this goes for men, just as much as it does for women.

Compensating.

Some might be impressed, Some avoid them, and a small percentage of the population openly mock this type.

Kindness is not a fucking currency.

10x hello’s, common courtesies and acknowledgement don’t work out at $10 a pop. After a day of being a normal, friendly human being, no one checks their bank account only to find it $100 down. Saying g’day and normal friendly interactions don’t cost actual money.

The image above might seem like a mockery, but it’s a visual representation of what people really see in daily interactions. Tough, aggressive and abrasive on the outside. Someone small, insecure and scared on the inside.

Kindness is not a currency and it is not a weakness. It is more impressive than a feigned act of toughness. The toughest people we know, also happen to be the nicest. Their egos are satisfied with their physical and mental ability, there’s no need to impress that on others.

Kindness impresses people more than anything. It especially impresses people with impressive backgrounds.

If you bumped into yourself on the street tomorrow, would you be impressed, disappointed or indifferent.

Top level gangsters get approval for a nerd to hit the delete button at 50,000ft. Low level gangster? You get a personal delete button, from the index finger - and that guy is looking at the whites of your eyeballs.

No one cares about...

Weak leadership is a cancer.
Weak leadership is a cancer.

May 04, 2022

This risk adverse approach is a result of fearful and weak leadership, where policy and planning are driven by fear their of public opinion courtesy of a rotten mainstream media platform. Any organisation that has any form of conflict at its pointy end should be driven to support the end-user. None deserve a frail egocentric leader who is fearful of answering some difficult questions, all of which have very simple answers.

This weakness from policy makers and commanders spreads like a cancer and infects every single individual below them...

Little key, heavy door
Little key, heavy door

The consistent application of basic training principles is the little key. The heavy door is whatever your reason is for training the first place. Every locked door opens easily with the right key. You can hard-knock the bastard, breach your way through and get what you need. But in terms of longevity, that door is cactus.
