Power Play: Revenge is the poison we end up swallowing

Everyone has a revenge fantasy. I’ve had a million. But Power Players know that revenge is the poison we end up swallowing ourselves.

Revenge always ends up in a very bad place. Nothing good comes from flexing your angry and vindictive talents. All it does is make you look small and pathetic.

Power Players do whatever it takes to stop from exacting some type of revenge they will regret. The best revenge is forgiving your enemies: nothing annoys them nearly as much.

The other truth Power Players know is that revenge ages you. It’s full of bitterness and rancor and these bad attributes seep into your soul. They make you lose your sense of humour. They make you focus on what you’ve lost rather than on what you have.

And the worst thing about revenge: you let your enemy win if you show them how much they’ve rattled you. Ignore them. It’s the only classy way to go.
