Written by graham and julie

There are many stories of people injuring themselves, and others, with Firewords inrepparttar old wild days of entrepreneurship and it is usually passed off asrepparttar 147030 price that had to be paid in order to win. However, as time passes, there is a tendency to confuse reality with myth about how people rose to be so successful. The myth tends to appear as reality and that can be dangerous especially as we are all becoming more aware of our rights andrepparttar 147031 speed ofrepparttar 147032 internet and bloggers to highlight indiscretions. Could it be thatrepparttar 147033 days ofrepparttar 147034 hard talking, difficult to please, arrogant, self possessed workaholic isrepparttar 147035 stuff of daydreams, films and bar room fantasies? Could it be that those who followrepparttar 147036 Firewords behaviour of: ridiculing others, being angry in traffic jams, being impatient because things are not movingrepparttar 147037 way they would like them to move, or their desires are not being met, bawling outrepparttar 147038 secretary when things are not as they would like, constantly accusing people of being of a lower mental disposition i.e. they are thicků. , insulting another person needlessly, etc etc etc are unaware that their use of Firewords to stun, subdue or destroy another person are on a slippery slope of losing their power and effectiveness? Every time you lose control of yourself you become less effective as a boss, colleague, parent, friend or child. Every time you set offrepparttar 147039 weapon of mass destruction you reduce your chance of being successful. You increase your chance of destruction. The problem is, like firing a firearm,repparttar 147040 more you use Firewordsrepparttar 147041 more residue is deposited onrepparttar 147042 surrounding area i.e. on you andrepparttar 147043 people close to you.
