I don’t have a problem with people being ambitious. Being driven is such an admirable quality. Of course, there are always going to be those people that take things too far. Sometimes people will do whatever it takes, even if that means pushing people under the bus. I wonder what it is that causes people to become so egotistical, to the point that they forget their humanity and basic level of respect. I think we’ve all worked with this kind of person in a team environment – an environment that is compromised by the person who speaks in, “I”s and, “I did this”. It can be particularly difficult for the introverts of the group to speak up. In my experience, the best thing you can do is to not waste too much time thinking about them and what they are doing wrong. Ultimately, think about yourself and being the best worker you can be. People can identify true character pretty well. Be the person who lets their actions speak loudest. Kindness will trump cutthroat every time. That might sound very idealistic but I’ve always considered angry thoughts to be toxic to your well-being. Be the person you want to be, and be the person you’ve always needed. Karma favours kindness!
We all get frustrated at times – just don’t make it someone else’s problem. Mood should not dictate manners! “Be kind to one another”
