In the business world, too many people think it’s all about being hard, tough, ambitious, or having grit.
Yes, these things are important, but trust me — that’s not where we’re lacking as a collective.
We have the “hard things” down. I think it’s actually the “soft things” that are harder to master, and I think kindness is a real foundation to why soft skills are so important in life and business.
What people misunderstand about kindness is that a lot of it comes down to fear.
People are scared that they’re gonna fail, that they’re gonna be taken advantage of, etc. So, instead of being kind, they throw their defenses up.
Trust me, being kind isn’t a sign of weakness.
The truth is, kindness is a strength that is greatly underrated.
