It’s a dog-eat-dog world and we’re all wearing milk bone underwear

I was watching the movie “Batman: The Dark Knight” the other day,and the opening scene has an extremely important lesson for anyone in business.

Here’s what I mean:

The movie starts with a bunch of crooks in clown masks robbing a bank. The leader of the gang is the infamous Joker. And as the various crooks are during their jobs (breaking into the vault,disabling the alarm,keeping the hostages under control,etc) they each start betraying and killing each other.

So,for example:

When disabling the alarm,one of the clowns shoots the other guy after he disables it. When in the vault,same thing,once it is open,one of the clowns shoots the guy who opens it. When it comes down to just two guys left (the Joker and the other clown),the Joker has the other guy killed…so that in the end,it’s just the Joker.

Brilliantly freaky,no doubt.

But,what does this have to do with you?

We got lots of “Jokers” in the business world.

And many are ready to betray you on a dime.

Frankly,many an otherwise smart person has gotten “got” because they did business with someone of unsavory character,for the promise of riches and glory.

When it happens you never see it coming,either.

But,afterwards,you wonder how you missed it.

It’s happened to me.

It’s happened to everyone else I know,too.

But,it doesn’t have to happen for you.

Pick and choose the people you work with,the services you hire (or hire out to),and the products you buy (or sell,if you are selling someone else’s product). You know that “alarm system” that goes off in your gut when something isn’t right?

It’s there for a reason.

Listen to it.

It can save you a lot of time and money.

It could save your freedom or even your life,too.

Hey,it’s a dog-eat-dog world out there.

And we’re all wearing milk bone underwear…

If you’re looking for a system to help you get traffic and leads for your business,and want to partner up with a reputable company that’s been around since 2008 (not some “fly by night” MLM that’s wants to scam you for your money) then check this out right here:

Awesome post. I also loved that film and can relate to what you are saying. There are people out there with bad intentions, perhaps unavoidable in this huge space we work in, and we all need to exercise caution, especially if it looks too good to be true..
