Seduction, indirect manipulation and deceptive methods that people use in offices and in their lives to get heights, to get notice, get raised, reach at higher position and so on. I was always taught that do not think in that way and always behave as a gentleman, always think positive and you will be a good man.
I always wonder why people behave in certain way, why people hurt me, why they fool to each other. Why people get reward for work done by another person. I always ask this question to myself. I did reflection, critically thinking and tried to understand peoples hidden motives. Now after many years of working experience with different peoples, sharing my thoughts with you.
People are infinitely complex, you can spend your life time by studying them, by watching their actions.

Life is game and mastering the game is important. You need to understand the rules. Plan many moves ahead. Do not indulge or dray yourself into petty matters that wastes your valuable time and resources. Do not take part in quarrels that have high price to be paid. People are wearing many masks and hide their actions thought. You need to observe your opponent and plan counter attack, outwardly you behave as a gentleman but inwardly don’t. Wear the velvet gloves in your iron hand. If you always do good things and always behave as a gentleman people will ruin you those who are not good.

Child first learns to crawl and then walk and then run. After many years of practice and patience a marathon can be won. If child is at it’s first stage of crawling, he cannot win the marathon.
