Tycoonism “Tis better to be silent and be thought a fool, than speak and remove all doubt.”

https://i2.wp.com/4.bp.blogspot.com/_OEenlAkN4Ro/SmsKE7bHiHI/AAAAAAAAAqo/vQFdnjf7kgo/s400/simpsons_nelson_haha2uwr.jpgToday’s Tycoonism is very much like the other famous adage:  “If you have nothing better to say, then don’t.”  How many times have you spoken outloud and created one of the biggest faux pas of your life?
Sometimes, when we speak our mind without so much thought, we end up embarrassing ourselves.  I am talking about social blunders that sometimes as judgmental people goes, these kind of mistakes are taken so much and sometimes, people have trouble forgetting the incident, and worse with the onset of media and advancement of technology, these blunders are recorded and can be replayed over and over with or without our knowledge.  Would you like your social blunder to be on the record– forever?  Not only that, people rarely forget anything controversial.

So what’s my advise?

Think before saying anything.  Before you make a comment, a tirade on anything, think once, twice and thrice before opening your mouth.  In the stand point of public relations, creating a big faux can make and break your chances in business.

If you have nothing better to say, then don’t bother.  Sometimes, our comments and tirade can hurt and offend not just the person you were referring to but you can offend other people around her, not to mention the people around you.  Offending and hurting another human being because of thoughtless comments will reflect on you and ruin reputation of your family and your business.  So if you have nothing substantial to say, then cut it.  Don’t bother saying it.

Put yourself into other people’s shoes. Think about it.  If you were in this person’s shoes, would you want others make fun of you infront of the your colleagues, family or worse the community? 

There are better ways to create spotlight on  yourself.  It doesn’t pay to use others at your expense and hurting other people in the process.  There are more ways than one wherein you can create positive feedback. 

  • Do good unto others.
  • Be grateful to others effort and openly thank them for it.
  • Help others.  Enlist with a charity in your community and participate in major projects.  In due time you will be credited for your help and contribution.
