I ran across this ancient proverb…”Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall. Better it is to be of an humble spirit with the lowly, than to divide the spoil with the proud”
How do you understand this and how can you apply this in your business and influential setting?
It makes me wonder as I read about the two Attorney Generals in Utah and the charges they are facing along with Mr. Johnson in St. George and his criminal charges. Do you think their pride got in the way?
Do you think they would recount the situations and the positions they took?
You/We carry a heavy responsibility to each other, to our customers, our communities, our families and the manufactures and vendors we represent and do business with. Make sure we don’t fall victim to Pride. We can and should treat everyone with dignity and professionalism without the negative Pride that sometimes wiggles its way into relationships or situations.
You/We can make BIG things happen without falling to the trappings of Pride.
Go do BIG things,
(by the way do you know where that ancient proverb is?)
