I’m a direct seller with a few companies. One of the companies I’m with just announced some major changes.
Rather than be calm and rational and THINK THROUGH things, people are freaking out on the COMPANY’S GROUP PAGE. I even saw a comment from someone who hadn’t watched the company’s announcement, but instead just ran with what she’d heard other people saying.
The people complaining are people who aren’t making many sales each month. This means they aren’t actually making that much income either. But they’re worried that the company is taking it away. They say they’re working hard.
Here’s the thing. Working hard doesn’t always mean you’re working the right way. If you’re doing the same thing over and over you’re probably getting the same results. When something isn’t working you have to step back and re-evaluate your plan. Try something new. Jump out of your comfort zone. That’s how changes happen. That’s where you find success.
But really, what the ever-loving fuck is wrong with people? If this is how they’re responding on this issue, I’m guessing this is how they respond to other things as well. Rather than actually taking the time process information, they’re letting knee-jerk reactions carry them forward, yelling about it, and getting inflamed by the other people who didn’t bother thinking things through either.
I’m guessing that’s how we got our asshole president.
And of course, because people freaked out, the company changed the requirements to make it easier. Now all those people who didn’t bother thinking shit through have been rewarded for their idiocy.
This is why we can’t have nice things.
It’s fucking irritating and I’m already in a foul mood.
