14 Hapless Individuals Who Got Screwed (For The Crime Of Being Nice)
In the world of business, there are a lot of maxims that people like to throw around. "Nice guys finish last." "It's not what you know, it's who you know." And so on and so forth. But is that really always the case? In his new book, Crime of Being Nice: How Extraordinary Service Can Bring You Success, author Dale Carnegie challenges the notion that being nice will get you nowhere in life. Rather, he argues that by going out of your way to do something nice for someone else, you can set yourself up for success. So is being nice really such a bad thing?
It's a common misconception that nice people finish last. In fact, research shows that being kind and considerate can actually lead to success in life. So why do so many people believe the opposite is true? Probably because we're bombarded with images of ruthless CEOs and Hollywood stars who seem to have no problem stepping on others to get ahead. But the truth is, being mean and greedy doesn't guarantee success - in fact, it often has the opposite effect. So the next time someone tries to tell you that nice guys don't finish first, remind them of all the successful people who are proof that they do!
There's exactly one case of justice being served in this carnival of karmic cruelty. See if you can spot it!
