…but deep down, he’s a really good guy.
Let me tell you something: deep down doesn’t matter.
People only give you credit for that which they SEE you do consistently.
Think about it: if someone says, “Yeah, but deep down, he’s a really good guy,” that probably means: “up front, he’s a real asshole.”
I once contributed to an article for the Wall Street Journal. According to their research, someone you’ve just met will form a first impression about you in two seconds.
Deep down, even if you are a “really good guy,” most of the people you encounter are never going to have enough time to figure that out.
So, you have a choice:
1. Maintain unity and congruency in your personality at all levels
2. Or deep down, just be a really good guy
Face it: it’s just not cool to be an asshole.
LET ME ASK YA THIS…
Do you know someone who, deep down, is a really good guy?
