People and how to deal with them-Part 4
OK, our 4th installment of People and how to deal with them. Are we learning a lot from these little gems of timeless wisdom?
Sadly the wisdom of the 50’s has not transcended into the new millennium. As you can see, this issue talks about manners, and we will get to that in a second.
But the very first article in this one really hits it home for me.
It’s about going into business for yourself. It starts by saying that for so many generations the ideal dream was to own your own business, work hard, and work for yourself.
“Young ambitious Americans have always had the courage to take the risk. They’ve looked failure in the face, rolled up their sleeves and redoubled their efforts.”
Then it goes onto to say that more and more college graduates are looking for employment with big companies.
“Why? The answer is not hard to find. A business of your own no longer means freedom to try out your own ideas in your own way. You must take into the business a partner called government. A partner that takes 30 to 80% of the profits, but none of the losses. A partner that passes more laws and penalties everyday than can possibly be read.”
The final paragraph, says it all though.
“Every time we ask the federal government for help or intervention in any of our problems, let us remember that we are also asking for less of the freedom to venture, build, invent and discover what made this country the envy of the world.”
Truer words have never been spoken.
And on to the manners. This little article is great. I remember my mom always telling me not to stare. I still don’t stare at people.
And how do you deal with being told what to do? This is pretty funny actually because I was talking to my friend just the other day about this. I hate to be told what to do, and so does she.
And some more cute, and funny photos.
Have a happy Thursday.
