A few months ago the fourth season of the awesome TV Show «Game of thrones» was completed. In the sixth episode of the last season, Tyrion Lannister is put on trial. Could this scene can teach us something?
First, let’s look at the relevant stage, or rather a snippet of. And at the end, the monologue of Tyrion Lannister rocks.
So, Tyrion Lannister is put on trial (falsely) for murdering King Joffrey at his wedding feast. And because he is at a disadvantage, some people found the opportunity to reciprocate with lies, to build a very convincing case of his guilt. For the record, Tyrion saved their city from guaranteed slaughter with the risk of his life.
So, the lesson of this scene is:
People who feel you have demeaned them, whether deserved or not, will go against you when the opportunity arises. You have to remember that in any of your interactions with people.
You have to be the «cool» guy, but not to try to to get everyone to like you. People should have feeling good around you or when you leave their presence.
The ass you kick on the way up is the butt you have to kiss on the way down, and that should be remembered.
Even when your friend’s girlfriend wants you, you have to avoid them and keep your friendship alive. Many times i had the opportunity to do something with my friend’s girls, but i decided ton to do. The result? They are still my friends and of course when I need them, they were there for me.
If you are good to other people, they will remember it. If you don’t, they will remember it too…
