Hey, it’s Marie Forleo and you are watching MarieTV, the place to be to create a business
and life you love. Isn’t that beautiful? I think it’s amazing. Today is Q&A Tuesday
and today’s question comes from Alisha and Alisha writes:
“Dear, dear Marie. My boss has the mentality of do whatever it takes to get ahead in business,
even if it means being dishonest or using severe manipulation. Every time I bring this
up to friends or colleagues they all tell me that the most successful CEOs are ruthless
and completely cutthroat. For example, Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. And that this behavior
is basically necessary. I hate that and it breaks my heart. How does one create success
as a sweetheart? XOXO, Alisha.”
Alisha, I love this question. Yes, of course we’ve all heard stories about Bill Gates
and the late, great Steve Jobs and so many others who’ve been painted, sometimes as
super rich genius jerks. But I’ve gotta tell you, thinking that that’s just the
way it is or that it has to be is so dangerous. Because if some part of you believes that
in order to be successful you have to check your integrity at the door, you’re gonna
severely limit yourself and what you’re capable of achieving.
I know most people think that’s the way it works, but it’s not true. This idea that
you have to sacrifice your kindness and your values and your moral compass just to be uber
successful is plain wrong. Successful people come in all shapes and sizes and there is
a critical difference between being a strong, successful leader who achieves remarkable
things and being an immoral, dishonest d-bag who does anything to get ahead.
First thing I want you to realize is that legendary asshats tend to get a lot of press.
And that’s because those are the kind of stories that the media loves. And honestly,
none of us know how true those stories really are. Plus those stories give most people an
easy out because it reinforces a false belief that in order to be successful, you have to
be a jerk.
Second, there are tons of hugely successful people that are strong leaders and they’re
sweethearts. Now, one that I’ve had personal experience with is Sir Richard Branson. Now,
I’ve worked with him, I’ve worked with his team, I’ve watched him interact with
his staff, and I can tell you firsthand that he’s an incredibly kind and honorable human
being.
Is he perfect? No, but neither are you and neither am I and neither is anyone. And there
are millions of other strong and successful leaders who are not as famous and they’re
doing great things in this world. So how do you do it? I’ve gotta tell you, it is all
about your approach. For example, every leader has to be able to do these 4 things:
Number one, give direct and honest feedback. Number two, inspire outstanding performance
in  your team. Number three, make tough calls, which often means disappointing and upsetting
others. Number four, let people go.
Here’s the trick, you can either do each of these 4 things like an asshat or like a
sweetheart. So, for example, you can give direct and honest feedback with compassion
or with cruelty. You can get outstanding results from your team through inspiration or intimidation.
Now, you get the idea. Anything you do as a leader can be done with an open, honest
heart or you can just be a jerk. The best part, you get to choose what kind of leader
you want to be.
Finally, I’d go so far as to say that being an asshat in business is not only unnecessary
but it’s actually dangerous. In today’s digital world where private emails and texts
and videos of conversations get shared with the public on a daily basis, you’d be a
total dumbass to behave unethically and think it’s not gonna eventually get out. So let’s
land this plane on a Tweetable.
“Holding onto your heart never has to hold you back from success.”
Now I would love to hear your take. As we’ve discussed, believing that you have to check
your integrity at the door in order to be uber successful is just plain wrong. So I’d
love to know, what other unchallenged assumptions or beliefs do you have about success that
might be holding you back? You can’t change what you’re not aware of, so think about
it, leave a comment below, and let me know.
Now, as always, the best discussions happen after the episode over at MarieForleo.com,
so come on over there and leave a comment now.

gift that only you have. Thank you so much for watching and I’ll catch you next
time
