Can You Safely Outshine the Master? — 14 Comments

  1. My sister started a new job and was recently upset because a co-worker who was trying to train her was not doing her job. She was withholding valuable information about the processes to prevent my sister from possibly getting ahead.

  2. It can be hard when you work under people who aren’t that compensating and kind. Thankfully most of the people I’ve worked with have bene very generous and reasonable.

  3. When you focus on outshining someone, your focus is in the wrong place. I believe that’s why the rule is there. If you focus on shining yourself and not stealing the light of someone else’s candle, everyone can shine. There is a place for everyone in this world.

  4. I think we need to be the best we can be. We can outshine someone but with subtlety and humility. That way, everyone’s happy.

  5. Situations like this make me glad I can work from home. It’s hard to work for someone who is power hungry!

  6. That is a great reminder, you always share the best posts and information. I appreciate it and needed to read this!

  7. I am so thankful I work for myself from home, I don’t think I could handle some of the office setting stuff. This can also be applied to so many other aspects of life situations as well.

  8. I have an office job and I feel this daily. Sometimes I feel like us office workers are forgotten but guess what? If werent there the masters would be so lost! 😉 Powerful to remind them that sometimes in the most professional way possible! HA!

  9. I’ve never thought of this, but I surely know some people who can’t stand for someone ‘under’ them to have the best idea. It’s always best to accept another’s best!

  10. Oh this was so true at my last job. It was not fun work environment to say the least. Other places I worked weren’t like this, they truly wanted everyone to succeed.

  11. Great info, it is a challenge to work with a personality that is insecure and power hungry. Through each lesson, we learn great tools. Thanks for this

  12. I can remember this when I had an office job. IT can be challenging especially if you are right about something and they refuse to listen.

  13. Thank you for the reminder that I can be my best self regardless of the situation. Encouragement, praise and compliment help each party feel important and give each a sense of self worth.
