I’m an Alpha. Nobody who knows me would contest this. That means in my worst moments I can be a bully. It’s just one of the many flaws on my mental personal improvement list. The upside to knowing how to bully is knowing how to handle bullies. This morning, I encountered a doozy. This rich, white, entitled asshole is accustomed to getting his ass kissed by everyone. Boy, did he get a Sunday morning surprise when he quickly realized I’m not in the ass kissing business. He was rude. I stood my ground. He threw a tantrum. I firmly and politely looked him in the eye, unmoved by his childish antics. It was as if he’d never heard the word “no.” Within 5 minutes he relented. So incredibly uncomfortable with my powerful, direct, and uncompromising stance, he couldn’t cope. In the face of true courage and strength, he crumbled like an insecure little bitch. Money and status are common external qualities and neither one makes you powerful. Power comes (in part) from courage – a much rarer internally-cultivated quality. Don’t ever let anybody push you around. Stand powerfully with your courageous heart and watch the weak wither.
