“I’D RATHER BE ALONE , THAN BE AROUND PEOPLE WHO DON’T WANT TO GROW” – Mr Mih
A sly can mean different things according to my dictionary , but , this is the definition that best suits what I’m trying to pull out in this article –
- “Artfully cunning, secretly mischievous; wily”.
According to the above definition , have you ever met a sly? Have ever met a cunning personality? A sly can be a friend, neighbor, roommate, partner,coworker, or customer. They laugh before you, but , plan something different (usually evil) at your back. It’s difficult to find a genuine personality out there. No wonder Facebook , and other social media platforms is filled with posts about fake friends. These “Fakes” almost seem to be more easy to feel or sense than oxygen. Almost everyone is trying to act like who they’re not. It’s a pity friends are trying to steal from each other. It’s a shame everyone is trying to compete spitefully.
Just so you know, too much spite in your heart leads to less progress. Less progress is as a result of less or weak focus on the things that really matter.When you focus on hate, it’s the same as focusing on zero fulfillment. You have no reason to fake who you are. You have zero reason to beef winners , instead be inspired by them – That’s progress! You have zero reason to be around who you hate or dislike and act like you’re their buddy.
For example : When I’m angry with people, I let them know almost immediately by my words or body language. When I dislike someone because of their lazy or negative vibe or because of their small thinking, you seldom find me around them. Likewise, when I admire someone because of their courage,brilliance,positive vibe or work ethic, I don’t mind spending my precious hours with them . I believe spending my precious time with transparent people gives me a more lucid direction. Transparent people are NOT afraid to call you “Stupid” to your face. Would you rather spend time with someone who calls you “Stupid” to your face or with the one who does that behind your back? “Transparency earns trust” – Grant Cardone says. Why not be transparent?
I’ve spent most of my time studying winners , and one trait I first discovered is – Transparency! Top dogs let you know what they tolerate and what they don’t tolerate and they never apologize for who they’re. Champions don’t sly around, losers do. While champions are busy with making things happen, losers are busy trying to act like they’re busy. One advice from me to you – Don’t be a sly! Don’t be a snitch! There’s zero fulfillment in being one. A sly or a snitch can make it to the top, but , they seldom maintain it or leave a great legacy!
Before I conclude, Two tips to avoid being a sly :
- Embrace Transparency : This doesn’t mean letting the whole planet know your next move, this simply means being authentic and letting people know who you are and what you stand for!
- Get busy : 100% of the cunny folks are idle people with zero purpose. Therefore, they snitch on others or sly around to fill the emptiness in their lives. Find something meaningful to do with your life. Get clear on your purpose and get busy chasing your dreams . Remember the saying : An idle hand is the devil’s workshop!
Avoid the sly, avoid the snitch . *Show me your friend and I’ll show you your future* – Anonymous. You don’t want to have a sly around. The people you keep around you will either make or break you. How can you identify a sly? Listen to your heart! This is beyond an article, this is a priceless message. Be YOU, do YOU, and never apologize for being REAL!
