The Best Revenge

September 16, 2016

“Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.”

-Apostle Paul

We live in a world where mediocrity is commonplace.

You expect others to bring competence to their jobs, only to be disappointed. You expect social and emotional maturity, but instead you get thin-skinned pugilists who deal out bitterness as a default. You expect intelligence, but to your dismay, you encounter the masses making superficial commentary about the impending Presidential election.

There is only one way to win.

Want to hit back at poor customer service? Bring excellence to every task you undertake. Take on the unintelligent by refusing to entertain it (“it seems we have nothing to learn here, so I should better not engage in a ‘debate’ at this time”). Trade kindess and confidence for the bitter and vitriolic.

You are the thermostat. Allowing the unsophisticated, the emotional predators, and the undesirable to change your temperature is a victory for them. Do not get in the mud.

Unless you’re a candidate in the midst of campaign season. Jump in the mud and fight. You’re already dirty.
