It is okay to seek revenge in the business world – but it’s important to go about it the right way.
You’re success is key to any revenge, and more than anything it is imperative to maintain your dignity and integrity while achieving this success. Regardless of a person’s background, in the end it’s all about the person themselves and the internal qualities they embody. Having tact makes a difference, and that’s not something money can buy just like poverty can’t buy work ethic. Maintaining character is paramount during the path it takes a person to get to their present situation.
When getting revenge the best thing you can do is simply build yourself up – focus on your own work, your next project and your own team. Project them, love them, protect the ideas and build your own house. It is rarely worth it, pragmatically, or spiritually, to put out someone else’s fire to build your own. And it is never worth it to burn your own house just to burn down someone else’s. This is all about making your next success – and not dwelling on others. Compete with them, convert their customers to yours and beat their idea. Doing all of this the right way, with dignity and tact, will feel better than any other revenge out there.
