Being "Nice" Is Actually Just Being Weak

If you saw someone you care about breaking promises that they made to themselves...

What would you do?

Would you look the other way and allow them to fall far short of their potential in life?

Or...

Would you hold them accountable to their shortcoming, push them harder, and demand excellence of them so they can succeed in life?

Most people might argue that cutting them some slack would be the "nice" thing to do.

Is it?

Is it really?

I don't see how letting someone fall short of the things they truly want in life is nice at all.

This is one of the biggest misunderstandings in our society today...

The concept that "loving yourself" and "loving others" is about being gentle, embracing self-acceptance, taking it easy, and being "nice”, instead of telling the truth.

Here's the reality...

If you ACTUALLY love and care enough about someone else...

You'll be relentless about holding them accountable...

Teaching them the necessary skills...

Setting high standards...

Pushing them to improve...

And giving them anything they need to build the life they truly want for themselves.

Sadly, the world perceives all of these things as "rude behavior”.

I don't know how any logical human can find your efforts to make them better rude or disrespectful.

Especially if you're holding them accountable to pursuing their greatest potential.

Do you actually care about the people in your life?

Hold them accountable.

Do you actually care about yourself ... and becoming the best version of yourself possible?

Hold yourself accountable.

Being "nice" is actually just being weak.

You're cheating yourself...

And you're cheating the people you care about most.
