Know Your Evildoer
Are you a superhero? Know Your Evildoer
Evildoers are everywhere. They are your competition in business, they are your friends who are consistently negative, they are the procrastinators, and they can also be within your family. Rather than take your frustrations directly out on them directly, there’s nothing which aggravates them more than your leading the life of your dreams. You are a superhero, and by taking action, achieving your goals, and exhibiting a positive attitude when faced with life’s frustrations, you can thwart them and stop them within their tracks.
Know Your Evildoer: The Cycle Repeater
Cycle repeaters are evildoers who repeat the same actions over and over again and still expect different results. They are the ones to whom you’re loaning money, and they still come back for more, caught in the same situation. They go to their jobs every single day and expect different results from the same situations. They might not see that gerbil wheel that they’re riding, or they might not see an opportunity to get out of the trap that they’ve laid for themselves. They expect magic sparkly dust to land upon them.
The procrastination evildoer will put everything off until tomorrow, sometimes waiting for that perfect moment, sometimes waiting for the wonderful opportunity. They are much like the cycle repeaters in that they might be waiting for the fairy dust to create that perfect storm of opportunity. Superheroes understand that there will be no absolutely perfect moment, and that they have several tools available which will create for them a better life.
The Cynic will find all of the potential obstacles for a project, product, or plan, but they will not find the positive aspects of them. These are the types of evildoers that you bring your ideas to when you want to be shot down, when you want to be thwarted in your own superhero activities. While these individuals do serve a purpose in pointing out the flaws of an idea, that is all that they offer to the table. Great business and personal ideas often do not get launched when coming face to face with a cynic.
Humility, compassion, and empathy are all important qualities of the superhero, and the selfish one will try to mold the conversation around them at every available opportunity. These are the evildoers who will try to one-up your experiences by talking about themselves and taking advantage of that humility, compassion, and empathy. These individuals are insidious, because they are usually the ones who you are closest to, people for whom you do not have any defenses.
These individuals are rare. These are people who would actively try to sabotage your efforts to be a superhero through actions and activities of their own. They are the ones who will try to one-up you in public, spread bad rumors about you, and more. While the competition is important to help you go further, they are still evildoers because they do not have your own needs at heart.
All superheroes have a little bit of dark side within them which is why you need to know your evildoer. The goal of the SMART Superhero Academy is to minimize or eliminate these evildoers from your lives and help you achieve your dreams of becoming a superhero to your family and friends.
