Underestimating Others. Written by Sivuyile Tshalana.
In life as people at times we like to think that we're better than each other as we're constantly in a race to be successful. In that race we meet a lot of people, get used to certain ways of doing things and we then settle for their personality that they portrayed to us. After that we then develop one of the bad tendencies that any human being can have, which is called underestimating. How this came about is that a human being looks down on another person. We then create unnecessary and inaccurate conclusions about certain individuals that we come a cross.
This can be considered as dangerous, because no-one really knows what the other person is always thinking. Sometimes they can tell if you ask them, but there's guarantee that the person told you everything. We then develop ways of underestimating that person based on what they told you, what you see and hear. In certain cases, many people show or tell you what you to hear so that you can think you ahead in life. Then that's how being underestimated come about in life. We don't want to give everyone a fair chance in life. We cut others of because we feel they are not good enough to be with us in our lives which means they won't be as productive as other trusted ones. To be honest everyone deserves an opportunity to do something without being underestimated so that they will be loved, and it will portray on their work as there would be no pressure. People are then allowed to be themselves which increase their happiness and productivity. They will feel content as they will not overthink things to come up solutions.
No-one has the right to underestimate another person. We all here to make somethings of ourselves and times we might step on each other's feet. When that happens, we don't have to take it personally, but we need to accept it as we keep it moving. In some cases, other people love being underestimated as it gives them less pressure. As an underdog, you can do whatever you want nothing to pressure and excel at it too. Before even underestimating another person, which I would don't do it as it is not worth it. Just do your research on other people before you utter a word about them to yourself and other people. You will get nothing from underestimating others. Hence it is important to do your own thing and focus on yourself more than you do on others. Chase your hustle, upgrade it and rip out the rewards of your hard work as well as live the life you know you deserve. It's now or never for your dreams and visions. Living on other people's shadows won’t help you.
