Do Nice Guys Finish Last?
I hear all the time how nice guys finish last, and I have to disagree with that statement. I believe too often people associate a nice guy as being a pushover or a doormat. Just like anything else a virtue has a vice. The truth is you can be too much of something, and it can turn into your weakness.
The term nice guy is usually thought of someone who is overly nice to others and gets taken advantage of. My thought is are you really that nice if you cannot be nice to yourself as well. Nice is a world that must be associated with balance. So to have healthy levels of niceness is not a bad thing. It becomes bad when you take it to a level where you have no boundaries and will do everything for others and nothing for yourself.
So the truth is one must take responsibility and realize that being nice to the point it is destructive is bad for you and bad for the person you are being overly nice to.
Just like my video explains we are all 1’s at the end of the day. Do not let others believe they are better than you and the same is true to not let others think they are worse than you either. Stand for your beliefs, because you will attract the ones who stand for them as well.
Remember that feeling you had when you felt on top of the world. When you feel that way you do not want to break others down, but at the same time you stand up for yourself if others try to break you down. That is what healthy nice is. Wanting the best for yourself and others, but not compromising your morals and beliefs just to make someone like you.
So go ahead and be nice. Just be the right kind of it. Make sure others respect you. The truth is nice and respected guys/girls often times finish first
