Needless to say that enemies exist everywhere, be they at:
- Neighborhood, etc
especially in a successful person’s life.
Yet, no matter how successful you are, you will always meet jealous people and those who always carry negative comments on your actions and are ready to give you a DISLIKE.
At work, things get more serious, in that the situation is related to your source of income and where you spend the majority of your waking hours.
You do not need to purchase arms or start acting defensively; instead, you need to know first if you are the source of their feelings or behaviors, because you might be:
- Sending negative signs,
- Hurting your their feelings,
- Talking about your past success all the time,
- Sharing your plan to become their boss,
Or any behavior which might create enemies in the work place.
If you are an innocent person, you might be in a stressful environment with colleagues who are not happy with their jobs or are afraid to lose them because of the manager’s undecipherable actions..
They might think that you will take the position they dream of. Here, there is a number of things you need to know
- Your enemies,
- Who is whose enemy,
- Who might be your enemy,
- Who is conducting a campaign against you,
- Who wants the position you want.
To protect yourself, you must:
- Do your job correctly,
- Know the law so that you never break it,
- Watch out what your mouth,
- Keep your hands clean,
- Never join bands,
- Fraternize the key people,
- Know what books they read and where they derive their actions from.
Regarding the last point, several people read some books strategic or war books. They DO apply them where they work. Their dark sides clearly appears in the workplace, and their hatred and thirst of control are their key motivators.
Unfortunately, those people do not change. You need to understand their personalities and what makes them come to work, before you label them as friends or enemies.
