If you’re an eagle, you must fight at all cost to prevent anyone from plucking out your feathers. This is because you need them to fly. You can have wings, but if you don’t have feathers, you can fly. One reason why I decided to do my own thing and not work for just anybody. Once they give you that job, they tell you what to say and do. I see an employer-employee relationship as a service for pay situation.
Even if you don’t want to work, your heart compells you when you know they need you.”
Once they’ve rendered that service, money changes hands and, that’s that. Once I punch out, I’m on ME time… The moment I go for a job, and they start acting as if I need the job more than they need me, that’s it. I leave and never go back. I only go where people need me.
In fact, they must need me desperately for me to take that situation seriously.
There are many ways to earn money with respect. As soon as an employer comes out of their mouth and say “I don’t need you” that’s when I start back off. Say “I don’t know how I will do this without you,” and I go above beyond the call of duty. Because they need me. Get it?
If you’re a cobra, you do not allow anyone to disarm you of your venom. You can hiss as much as you want but if you have no poison, you’re powerless. You’re a circus clown. The moral of the story is: Never let anyone take away your dignity, guilt you into giving up your honor or talk you out of whatever it is that gives you your edge with them.
Never let anyone take away your dignity, guilt you into giving up your honor or talk you out of whatever it is that gives you your edge with them.
They can drop theirs, but you keep yours. Even if you don’t want to work, you will be compelled to when you know that you’re needed. If not, why bother? You got paid a hell of a lot of money, but you can’t do what you needed the money for, the reason why you worked for it, then it’s just the same as being broke.
If you are a lion, you’re the “king of the jungle,” YOU cannot lay around when your paws are being clipped off. Or your teeth filed in. A lion does not only protect his lioness and his cubs he also defends his teeth and his paws because, with those, but he too can never be easily overpowered.*
