“The people who know the most have the least to say,” is the saying that I’ve heard most often. It’s true, as is this quote, that as humans we are incredibly verbal creatures. We use words to communicate what we feel, and they can feel like a huge barrier to our growth.
This is a quote from a popular book about how we are all the same and we should all just be nicer. It goes on to say that when we are in the same place, no matter how we feel, we should just be nice to each other. We should not be abusive or hateful to each other because that can leave us feeling like we are not doing something right. We should also say positive things to each other because that is what makes everyone feel good.
People with different social skills and personality traits are not all the same. It is quite possible to be one of the nicest people on the planet and also be rude and abusive to other people. Although this is a generalization, the quote’s author, Dan Ariely, does say a bit about how different people react to the same situations.
The quote above is from his book “ullytics.” It is a bit controversial, but it basically states that different people react differently to the same situations, and this is why different people are able to achieve different results in their lives.
Ariely’s book is an interesting read. I think it’s important to remember that some of the people in his stories never actually achieved the outcomes he describes. For example, he says that one of his subjects, the woman in the quote above, was able to get a good job, a mortgage, and a house, even though she didn’t achieve these things in the way he describes, and he says that her success was due to her taking advantage of the opportunities that came her way.
As a rule of thumb, I think Arielys got a bad rap for not achieving what he described. Sometimes people get a bad rap because they are lazy, don’t work hard enough, are unable to see opportunities. Arielys is one of those people. He is quite the opposite of lazy, he works hard, but he doesn’t give it nearly the same amount of credit that he deserves.
Arielys goes on to describe the three main advantages to his lifestyle: he lives near his family, he gets to have a beautiful girlfriend, and he has a rich father that pays his way. He also describes the disadvantages as being “lazy”, “not smart”, and “not good at sports”. He doesn’t really like sports, but I think he may be wrong about that.
Arielys is a fairly lazy man, not smart, and he works hard, but he doesnt give it nearly the same amount of credit that he deserves, and he doesnt like sports.
Arielys is a pretty lazy person, not smart, and he works hard, but he doesnt give it nearly the same amount of credit that he deserves, and he doesnt like sports.
