I. Use intelligence to combat unintelligence

Once your stupid boss fell that you are smarter than them, they will feel little bit threatened and will try to sabotage you. That is why it is important to prove to them that you are a lot smarter and that you are out of their league. This way, they will feel frightened to mess with you.

Don’t have second thoughts in using any opportunity to prove that you are way smarter than anyone, especially your boss. Use intricate reasoning and big words when talking to them, and act like it’s natural for you.

II. Explain yourself using complex logic

The big issue wuth a stupid boss is they often take dumb decisions and asks you to implement them. When this happens, say you’ll do it according to what they want and then later do it according to your will.

And when your boss asks you why you disobeyed them, explain yourself using logic and big words that are above them. Say for example: “I was backtracking my steps on the appending of account numbers on the ICM stream and realized a divergent approach with this process would emphasize the project’s collateral benefits for both our company and our partner site in terms of PCI and other security risks.” Then watch them stare at you blankly. They don’t want to look stupid even if they don’t have any idea on what you just said, they will not acknowledge this. Vanity is common to stupid people. Most of the time, they will just say, “Ok, next time, do things like I tell you to”. Then just repeat the same process next time.

III. Understand their feelings

Because a stupid boss can not follow complicated logic, often it is best to push their emotional buttons to impact their choices. Do not bother to attempt to convince them of arguments when you suggest to carry out a certain project.

Tell them something like this, instead: “I went to speak about this project to Tim (the boss of your boss) and he believes that it’s a great idea.” it’s essential to please your boss to Tim, that’s all you have to persuade them to.

IV. Use plain and simple logic, and perfect choice of words.

If you really feel the need to persuade a dumb boss to use logic, facts and arguments, then strip them off before using them. It reflects the malevolence and abilities of good people. Imagine speaking to a caveman who does not know the great phrases and sophisticated logic: “This… line; this… circle.”

Simplicity is when you try to convince a dumb boss. Try anything and you’re going to lose them. Then you will only hear about them: “I don’t find your arguments convincing enough” (translation: “I don’t have no indication of what you are talking about”).

Last but not least, keep in mind that no matter how good your people’s ability to cope with a dumb boss is, it’s always better to cope with a smart one instead. Thus, if it is often time to trick your boss with your higher brain power, perhaps it is time to find another job.😅 😅 😅

10 Tips to Achieve Anything You Want in Life

1. Focus on commitment, not motivation.

How committed to your goal are you? How important is it for you, and what are you willing to sacrifice to achieve it? If you find yourself fully committed, there will be motivation.

• Here’s how to focus on commitment.

2. Seek knowledge, not results.

Focusing on the excitement of discovery, improvement, exploration, and experimentation will always fuel your motivation. If you focus solely on results, your motivation will be like the weather, the minute you hit a storm it will die. Focusing on the journey is the key, not the destination. Continue to think about what you are learning along the way and what you can improve.

• Here’s how to seek knowledge.

3. Make the journey fun.

It’s a great game! The minute you make it serious, there’s a big chance it’s going to start carrying a heavy emotional weight and you’re going to lose perspective and get stuck again.

• Here’s how to get rid of stagnating thoughts.

4. Get rid of stagnating thoughts.

Thoughts influence feelings and feelings to determine how you view your work. You have a lot of thoughts in your head, and you always have a choice of which ones to focus on: those that will make you emotionally stuck (fears, doubts) or those that will move you forward (excitement, experimenting, trying new things, stepping out of your comfort zone).

• Here’s how to get rid of stagnating thoughts.

5. Use your imagination.

After getting rid of negative thoughts, the next step is to use your imagination. You are full of positive energy when things go well, and you need to be even more energetic when you are experiencing difficulties. Rename your situation. If you keep repeating I hate my work, what feelings will those words evoke? It’s an imagination matter! At the most boring job, you can always find something to learn from even the worst boss in the world. I have a great exercise for you: think and say only positive things for three days. See what’s going on.

• Here’s how to use your imagination.

6. Stop being nice to yourself.

Motivation means action and results are achieved through action. Your actions sometimes fail to deliver the results you want. So you’d rather be nice to yourself and not be in a difficult situation. You are waiting for the perfect timing, a chance, while you are driving into stagnation and sometimes even depression. Get out there, challenge yourself, even if you’re afraid, do something you want to do.

• Here’s how to stop being nice to yourself.

7. Get rid of distractions.

There will always be meaningless things and distractions in your way, especially those simple, usual things you prefer to do instead of focusing on new challenging and meaningful projects. Learn to focus on the most important thing. Write a list of time-wasters and be responsible for not doing them.

• Here’s how to get rid of distractions.

8. Don’t rely on others.

You should never expect others, not even your partner, friend or boss, to do it for you. All of them are busy with their own needs. No one is going to make you happy or attain your goals. Everything’s on you.

• Here’s how to not rely on others.

9. Plan.

Know the three steps you have taken. You don’t have to have more. Complete your weekly calendar, and note when and how you are going to do what. It’s important to plan when – what – how. Review how you learned every day and review what you could do to improve.

• Here’s how to plan.

10. Protect yourself from burnout.

When you’re very motivated, it’s easy to burn out. Watch to recognize any signs of fatigue and take time to rest. When you schedule relaxation and fun time in your weekly calendar, your body and mind will rest. Do a variety of tasks, keep switching between creative and logical things, physical and still things, working alone and with a team. Places to switch. Meditate, or just breathe deeply, close your eyes, or focus for five minutes on one thing.

• Here’s how to protect yourself from burnout.

Not because you’re lazy or you don’t have a goal, you lack motivation. Sometimes even the biggest stars, the richest entrepreneurs or the most accomplished athletes get lost. The curiosity about how much better or faster they can get is what makes them motivated. So be curious first and foremost, and that will lead you to your goals and success.

Top 10 Hidden Secrets of a Millionaire Mindset

Banner, Header, Business, Homepage

We see many key differences when we look at the behaviors and attitudes of those financially successful and those who fight to build fortune.

However, there is a psychological characteristic that is shared by the rich and the poor. That’s what the self-serving partiality is called.

The self-serving distortion is any perceptive distortion that an individual has so that he can see himself in a positive light. That’s what we often see when we look at people who come from riches and seem to blindly attribute their success to their talents –some call it the silver spoon effect. It is incredibly frustrating to see these people show no signs of humility for those of us who don’t have such an excitement in life.

This self-serving prejudice goes in both directions. Most people looking at other people’s lives under-estimate their success and overestimate the value of talent, work ethics and thinking. We tend to consider other people’s failings as character defects rather than bad luck.

So what are we able to learn from that?

Well, while luck is a factor, it’s completely out of our control, so the only area we should focus on is our thinking. It can make us much more likely to earn this kind of money if we can take a millionaire attitude.

Well-off people are often going to tell you: everything is about mindset. And the truth is, yes, most of it is mentality.

So here is a millionaire’s 10 hidden secrets …

1.Millionaires trust their unconscious minds.

The mind is erratic and untrustworthy. It changes its position on things constantly, raised objections and doubts which prevent clear and concise decision-making. The millionaire attitude requires us to rely on more than what we feel at the present time, something that goes beyond our fears and concerns. Others may say that they have faith in their unconscious minds to lead them in the right direction at the right time.

2. Millionaires start with absolute clarity.


One thing is to know what you want and another is to know what you want in the smallest detail. Millionaires often have very clear goals and plans to follow up until they reach their destination. We see the same thinking frequently in hyper-successful athletes who speak for years about their success visualizing it. You must define exactly what you want and know the experience intimately before it enters into existence if you want to have an idea of growth and abundance.

3. Millionaires know their greatest asset is attention.

The average person is wasteful of time each day for hours and hours. Social media, TV, video games on phone, smoking cigarettes, and a list of things continues. The millionaire knows their attention is precious and does not waste it on activities that offer nothing. All they do is concentrated on their goal.

4. Millionaires never lose sight of their target.

It is important that you always keep your goal ahead of you in order not to waste any attention on trivial pursuits. One way to do this is to create a life in which people with similar goals are around you. You can also ensure that you celebrate the small wins constantly so you know exactly what you do.

5. Millionaires distort their money relationship.

This is what the millionaire mindset is most unusual. Most people never consider themselves to be unconscious about their inability to make money. We have had conditions for believing in the Hollywood version of the wealthy villain, so we believe that wealth gain means acting in a way which puts our moral integrity in question. You can make money and still help people, whether you’re a good person doesn’t relate to your bank account. Make sure you don’t have a conflicting money relationship and don’t have any moral doubts.

6. Millionaires decide on things that have meaning in their lives.

You must decide that money is a precious asset for your life. You’ll never focus to pull up and go hunting for wealth–there are simply too many opinions when you listen to what everyone else says you care. You will be driven to success by your mind if you decide what is in your life and do not follow the herd.

7. Millionaires give better than they take.

It can be counter intuitive, but the millionaire attitude is more than necessary. You must be social in order to gain wealth and be successful in your relationships. Look always for something else, and you’re going to find something in return.

8. Millionaires are aware of their drive.

People may make a lot of money if their emotions are negative; anger, greed, insecurity. But that never will bring you the accomplishment you expect. If you are driven by a need to serve others, then money brings a sense of satisfaction. Know you’ve got the right motivations to get rich.

9. Millionaires do not so personally take stuff.

Another aspect of millionaire thinking is that they do not personally take things. It’s hard to remain grounded and coherent in our actions when we look at our ups and downs as reflections of our self-worth. The wealthy see failure as a chance for growth. There are thousands of factors that control their achievements and failures. Take all the lessons you come to, not celebrate too long victories or ruminate about defaults.

10. Millionaires are risk-takers.

Everyone knows this, but how often do we see it in our own lives? You have to take risks if you want to succeed. It’s no other way around. If you want to be rewarded, you have to take chances. Consider that we will not be so scared of taking risks if we are able to take our failings as opportunities for growth!
