10 Things People Who Step On Toes Never Do

Having a take charge attitude can be an asset in life. Being able to get whatever you dream and desire in spite of any challenge makes you a goal getter.

But those who Step On Toes. always do the following

10 Things People Who Step On Toes Never Do

1. Never Value The Worth Of Others

No one is as good as they are even though they recognize that their colleagues have great skills .

These team members are contributing ideas, making an impact in their business and realizing their vision but all they think about is the fact that they are doing others a favour.

2. Never Work As A Team

There are people who are allergic to teams and groups. They agree with the school of thought that if you want something done, you have got to do it yourself and no one can do it better than them.

So they make the lives of their colleagues or team mates  so miserable in exchange for making a name for themselves.

They look for opportunities to destroy the image of their colleagues so that they can prove to everyone they are smarter or better.

3. Never Give Honest and Sincere Appreciation

Those who step on toes know that the best trick is to give flattery to the maximum.

They know the secret, that the way to arouse enthusiasm and bring the best in a person is to lavish with praise.

So they flatter people just to get them to go their way without realizing their intention.

They make their team mates feel important in public while in private they despise them and look for ways to bring them down. As long as their plan isn’t questioned, there is no issue.

4. Never Think of Horizontal Structure

Competition seems good and healthy. it’s an opportunity to lift oneself and learn new things but competition can sometimes be self destructive when sly or nastiness is introduced.

It’s human nature to climb the ladder but to get to the top, fear tactics has to be used to scare competitors.

It’s no wonder that people embrace vertical structures, there is a conscious thought to always stand out even if there are going to be losers.

5. Never Understand Mutual Respect

Why should I respect him? After all, we are not of the same class. I am an expert who has received so many awards. I have been interviewed by major TV stations and just recently, I had an audience with the President of my country. So why should I respect a rookie?

Such statements isn’t new but is a reflection of one who is oblivious to the principles of success.

One might be a rookie today but such situation does not last forever.

6. Never Let Others Have Their Way

They always feel that they have to be right to make an impression. It doesn’t matter if the idea is great, if it does not come from them, then it not worthwhile and will never work.

They refuse to collaborate with a team mate and always make team projects so difficult, just because it’s his idea and not theirs.

They derive joy from competing intellectually with their colleagues and will not let any one tarnish their ego. If they sense any form of confrontation to their ideas, they fortify themselves with crazy arguments. 

7. Never Believe That People are Kings Rather Than Pawns

Though they surround themselves with brilliant and great minds, all that is before them are pawns to achieve their goal.

It doesn’t matter to them if others have a dream or desire, as longs as it does clash with theirs, everything is ok .

8. Never Balance  Ambition

To what extent is ambition considered healthy. Maybe there is no extent to human ambition; as long as there is a dream, it’s ok.

What is wrong with somebody trying to make a name for themselves anyway? At a time when jobs are being outsourced and lost, maybe it is good that you have come along, shaking up the place and producing obviously good results

it’s normal and healthy to be ambitious even if it means pushing others to the wall.

9. Never Avoid Having Enemies

Why should I? After all, It is impossible to get anything made or accomplished without stepping on some toes; enemies are inevitable when one is a doer.

10. Never Mind Their Business

You worry over what other’s are doing. Your life seems to be revolved around the life of others. What are they doing? Why do they have this and that? You ponder and insecurity fills your soul.

You feel that they are better than you because you compare yourself to them using the measurement of circumstances. You watch their tracks like a stalker and look for every opportunity to make an impression. 

You wipe your ego based on the failure of others.
