As if my head wasn’t full enough already!
For reference check out this post:
I was going to just laugh this post off. But, it’s actually only one of about 100 posts in my RSS feeds today the caught my eye enough to read, let alone comment on (no I don’t read more than 2 or 3 of them a day).
It seems a sign of our times:
You’re wrong……. No, we’re right…….. TAKE THIS YOU _______!
What’s missing? COMMUNICATION is MISSING. There are so many other avenues this could have taken that it’s funny and scary at the same time. Unfortunately it mirrors the world (or at least the U.S.) as a whole. It’s all “US” against “THEM”, but at the core we all really want the same things.
We want.. Prosperity. Freedom. Love. Health. Peace. Happiness….etc
We just may have different views on “obtaining” them (note: you don’t really obtain most of them, but I’m at a loss for another word). Instead, the vast majority of people stick to their own dogma, and refuse avenues of communication which could forge new ideas and directions which could potentially be win-win’s.
Without exposing my “hand”, consider the general economic theories which promote either trickle down, or trickle up (ok, sue me if I’m getting terms wrong, the point of the post remains just as relevant).
One basically says that you should support the top (a corporation for example) so that its prosperity can trickle down to to everyone.
The opposite side basically says that you should support everyone, so that their riches flow up to the top, again so that everyone can get/be ahead.
The common ground is that everyone wants everyone to get ahead, yet they have opposing methods to get there. The are ALWAYS fighting about who is right and who is wrong. It’s insanity!
I knew you would ask. The answer is: Because they are both wrong, and they are both right.
If you’ve been following my posts, you know I like to take real-world examples and show how they might help you move forward with your desires, dreams and goals. This example may be my most basic and important yet…
Consider a TREE. It grows in “two” directions at once. The Roots grow down as they are fed water and nutrients from the soil. The Branches grow up and outward with the photosynthesis of the sunlight. Without BOTH, neither would grow for long, and the WHOLE would DIE.
Umm.. Sometimes there are no RIGHT and WRONG. Both sides are required to may anything work.
I’ll spare you about 100 similar examples that are firing into my head. Maybe you can comment below on whatever strikes you as requiring “both sides” to win. I’ll get you started…
Let’s not point fingers and “be right”. Let’s understand that the business can’t service without the Customer, and Men can’t survive without Women. Without communication and co-operation between the two nothing will function for long.
