In some cases especially it comes to discharge of your duties, you should go as per your boss's mentality. I have seen a person who always feels what he says is correct. If we try to clarify him the problem in his plan he will get upset. He will demand as a Boss that whatever he said was to be implemented. So what I was doing act as per his advice and report him the result. Many time it happened he was wrong we have to change our path. But n way, he is the boss. In such cases your personal thinking may not be accepted unless and otherwise it was proved that the other man was wrong.
The strong person will be unaffected by the things others talk to him or talk about him. He will simply pick the good out of the bad and accept it. Instead of fighting with others he will be examining himself and will find solutions leading to solace and comfort.
This may appear to be a theoretical proposition but there are people like that and if you minutely observe you can find a few around you.
Knowledge is power.
However, that should not distract us from our goals by any means.
I have promises to keep and miles to go before I sleep.
