Am I allowed the moment to rant a bit? Have I earned this much?
I feel I’m probably “preaching to the choir.”
I doubt I attract the other types to this blog.
I’m down about something completely different but for some reason I got sparked on this unrelated subject as well tonight
… this is after all the Photography Blog …Gotta keep it photography.
Give said the Little Stream
I feel people should not hide their talents…
They should use them to help the lives of others.
I’ve been given so much I totally want to give back…
You expect me to believe those are our only two choices?
I think people are Messed up in the head when they say “You’re not in this to make friends, this is a business”
Oh my heavens you dimwhitted baffoon!!!! You think I’d actually choose money over friends!!
Besides when did it ever become THE choice…
Like we can’t do both??!?… maybe for your small pathetic mind you can’t find the way.
USING vs Win-Win-Win
Stop telling people that people are to be used for your gain.
Stop making yourself feel better with the phrase “It’s Good business”
… try out some better phrases, like “It’s a good way of life” “It’s good principles”
Messing with this idea of good business practice means NOTHING in the grander scheme of things…
Try to look for the Win Win Win
Where everyone gains something… people are more than happy to pay for something that is of worth.
It makes both parties happy, to make an honest living and to be honest and pay for what they receive.
People will surprise you if you treat them with respect. They’ll give you money with no regrets and perhaps even happily.
yes understand business and how to operate it well… but don’t let it drive you to excuse any action… A bad action is bad whether or not Business “excuses” it
Stop being so caught up in yourself.
Stop spending all your time figuring out ways to drain the person of their money and figure out ways to make what you’re offering a better Win in the Win-Win-Win
They’ll give you some more money for THAT. No sneakyness needed.
And finally on another note.
When someone is giving and sharing… think about it, if you appreciate it show it.
I know that it’s hard to appreciate what’s right there.
Looking the gift horse in the mouth. (Is it too good to be true)
do we accept those from our own home country/town, as the analogy goes.
But it’s sad to see those who on one side give so much… and then to see those who establish a reputation on never sharing or giving and who even only take and then when they see incentive to share, they open up and people flock to them in droves and throw buckets of money. Are we rewarding a change of heart or are we rewarding the past of never giving?
Dang and how good are they going to be at actually sharing after a life of being close lipped about it all?
We can work the system and find ways to manipulate you.
Don’t encourage them… reward good principles and you’ll see more of it happen.
This is good for whatever…. beyond photography
You want people to treat others better?
Stop making jerks think there’s a benefit.
You want people to be kinder? stop acknowledging the bully.
You want people to share… do it yourself, without expectations.
Give love and charity, but don’t expect… it’ll make it’s way around.
And then let go of unfair expectations.
I understand the prodigal son… we rejoice in the change of heart.
The coming back to the fold.
But we search for that change of heart and support IT.
We show the next step to the lost son… of the type of good life ahead.
We don’t throw our inheritance his way.
he’ll eventually know his road is rough and long.
Why are you doing the things you’re doing?
How are you treating people?
Let’s show these bastards that not only can we be successful but we can do it based on solid good principles and good photography.
we’ll make money and we’ll create a solid business that just doesn’t thrive on the last bit of manipulative marketing you learned.
