If you are compromising too much, there is a chance that you are getting manipulated.
Why are you the one that's always compromising?
How come the other person always gets their way?
Be more curious.
If something seems off, stick up for yourself.
I have no clue, that is only something that you can decide for yourself.
'Dang is there anything I need to look out for?'
But let me give you a few things to look out for.
'How come people don't leave when it's happening to them?'
Because most people have 0 clue that they are being manipulated.
You ever made a mistake around someone, only for them to hold it over your head?
The will always bring up the mistake when you 2 are not seeing eye to eye.
These people will use that mistake as leverage to get what they want from you in the future.
This person will commit the worst acts & find a way to rationalize it.
Example: cheaters when they get caught.
They have every excuse in the book for why they did it.
Heck, they are so good at rationalizing, they will make it seem like your fault.
This person will always bust out flirty, seduction tactics to get what they want.
They will bust out these moves when they did something devious so you forget what they just did.
The weak-minded fools let their temptations overpower their judgment.
By far one of the hardest ones to spot.
This person always plays dumb.
They play dumb so much that you start believing they are dumb.
They are playing dumb for a malicious reason.
Playing dumb to get something out of you
Listen to your gut on this one
Ah.. the shamer.
Always being a virtue signaling shithead.
Never mind their mistakes they say.
They just focus on yours.
Shamers reduce their targets self-esteem & then toy with them like a puppet.
These people don't technically lie.
But they leave out crucial information.
They strategically leave out information in order to paint a narrative.
The narrative is set to paint them as some saint & you as someone who is worried about nothing.
So many fall victims to this that its sad.
This group will yo-yo your emotions.
One second they are showing you all the love in the world.
Colder than the movie Frozen.
Seriously, these people cannot be fixed.
Rotten to the core.
When these people get caught doing something shady, they are MASTERS in diverting attention.
I've seen someone once lie and say their mom had a 'fatal' sickness when they were caught red-handed.
They have 0 integrity when diverting attention.
You ever met someone who was always beefing, but seemed soo sweet?
All an act.
This person knows exactly how to act like a sweet little angel.
They know how to leverage this innocence to get what they want.
But in reality, a demon hides behind that angel face
By far the scariest one for many.
This group unleashes their anger at anyone that comes at them.
They leave their victim too scared to ever call them out, even when they did something wrong.
Well, now you have a choice.
'And what is that?'
What are you going to do about it?
You are being played.
Are you going to stay & be a victim or muster up enough courage to leave?
The choice is 100% yours.
I am looking out for you.
Now, look out for yourself.
No one said the social dynamics world was rainbows & butterflies.

Only give these currencies to high value people. Never spend these currencies on low value shitheads eg: trolls, weasels, snakes, naysayers etc.
'Wait, I thought money was the most important currency?'
Once you adopt abundance mentality, you realize their is no shortage of money.
Making the dollars your most important currency will have you leading an empty life.
Time to flip your perspective.
When you strip yourself to the core, you are an emotional creature.
Emotions are your internal worlds energy.
Harnessing that energy is crucial for leveraging yourself to obtain whatever you want.
You have a finite amount everyday, so spend it wisely.
A second that is lost will never be returned.
You start valuing the hell out of this currency the more you mature.
As the years start adding up, you realize time is precious.
You must always have a scarcity mindset towards time.
Once you do so, you will not be lazy.
You can be here, but not present.
Attention is completely mental.
Giving someone your attention means you are clearing up mental bandwidth to make room for them.
Only give your attention to people who help you grow.
For the negative ones?
Ignore their existence
When you procrastinate, you are focusing too much on the big tasks.
Focus on the small tasks & build up.
Ex: instead of focusing on getting the entire blog done, do 1 paragraph.
You will strangely want to complete another paragraph...
Bonus Hack: Song
Have one song that gets you hyped up.
Promise yourself after playing the song 2-3 times, you will immediately begin.
No questions asked.
The song amps up your emotions & you approach the task with energy.
Bonus Hack: Game
Turn mundane tasks into a game.
Use your creativity.
If you’re a gamer, break tasks into levels & kill each boss.
If you like music, reward yourself with a song after each completion.
Challenge: Aim to do some pushups or pullups after each crossed off goal.

'So what do I do?'
You learn the 75/25 law.
'What is that?'
The law of charisma...👇
Let's address the over thinkers first.
Do you have any idea why you overthink?
'Yea. Because others are judging how shy I am.'
Others are thinking about themselves, not you.
But the fact that you think they are thinking about you, you fuck up the interaction.
Now you stay in your head too much & avoid the present moment.
A major no no in the social world.
Your tendency to think that others are judging you for being shy, coincidentally makes you more shy.
And that's when you start giving off a strange vibration to the social setting.
This is when you begin attracting comments like 'why are you so quiet?'
This is why a lot of high IQ people lack social intelligence.
They talk to humans like robots & are baffled when they are resented for it.
This is why the charismatic person who knows less often rises up quicker
'What you smoking bro?? My IQ will be the biggest factor of my success!'
That's a limiting belief.
I'm gonna shake up your paradigm real quick 👇
You have been conditioned your entire life to believe that IQ score alone will dictate success.
And like most people, we were like 'yea, sure!'
But there's few incorrect thought patterns here
1. Success is subjective.
2. IQ exam insinuates intellect is fixed.
3. Your high IQ won't make others give a fuck, your communication will.
Let's go thru each one
1. Success is subjective
What I consider success may not be success for you.
Success it's a mirror image of where you are & where you want to be.
Aka sense of self.
So measuring success starts from looking within, not an exam.

Most poor people don't leverage. Trying to get everything done yourself will limit you to only how much you can do.
Get more hands working for you, and find a way to pay or show them what's in it for them.
When doing business, poor people would require collateral from strangers, but excuse those close to them because they *trust* them.
That's how you get scammed.
The unspoken rule is to know your safety net whenever you're not taking collateral.
Never need to trust.
Never seen a very successful businessman say "This is not a good thing, it's evil."
It's either good for business or bad for business. Its either effective or ineffective.
Morality will only limit you.
Expecting someone to help you because you helped them in the past is ludicrous.
If you're no longer useful to them, people have no reason to help you.

Since then we've started a remote web dev company @SquarecatWebDev and been lucky enough to have completed several freelance projects 💻 that have kept us on the road.
In the last few months we've become a huge part of this amazing new Maker community and have found so many new friends from @makerskitchen, @women_make_ and several others! 🥰
We love travelling together (even if I'm only a glorified laptop watcher 😒) but we're both much happier being able to share our ideas outside of our own little bubble and our products have benefitted too!
Here's to another year of nomading with my favourite person and to the Maker community continuing to grow with our help! Maybe one day we'll all get to meet each other ✌️ 💛
My journey started in March 2005 when I got an offer of apprenticeship from CMED. I knew nothing about cars and earthmoving equipment.
I also did not know what a Diesel plant fitter was (our education should do better on this front, careers should not be accidental). When I was chasing apprenticeship, I wanted to be an Auto electrician. When the CMED advert came out I did not have a driver’s licence
or learners’ licence, which is a prerequisite if you want to train in the Automotive industry. Diesel Plant Fitting is classified under the Mechanical Industry, so a driver’s licence is not required on application. I was, however, asked for it during my interview and I had one
The interview was hilarious, I cracked their ribs every now and then but that is where I learnt how to take control of an interview. (I knew no one there as well). I told them from the onset that I knew nothing about the trade, but keen to learn, that is why I applied
They asked me what I knew about mechanics in general. I responded that I knew bicycle mechanics because that it what we had at home and everything else contained in the O level integrated science book Science in Zimbabwe. So, they asked me about stuff that was in

What happens when you have:
Verizon All Access (after they buy CBS/Viacom)
Answer? Internet Slows To A Craw and Dies.
Netflix's gets 35% of all internet traffic.
Now we all know Apple Coming to Netflix Corner.
We know that WarnerMedia Planning One
We Know about Disney+
Now how will the net handle 8 Streaming Platforms all at once?
Answer - IT CANT.
But Novid, the speed, the 4K the all everything?
Even if you could do it and even if AWS ran six million clouds, The Net Will still slow to a crawl. 35%, goes to nearly 90% if any of the 8 or all of the 8 eat at netflix's numbers.
Oh, they wouldn't be running at once.
FOOL. You forget how bad things were when game of thrones season premieres came around. HBO SERVERS FALL DOWN GO BOOM!
Now see if a season like 2021 come around and they air shows on a same day. It gets crazy. AT&T and others gonna realize they cant build out forever. Something will give and it might be your entertainment consumption big time.
