WISDOM FROM THE WOODS – LIFE LESSONS: HYPERCRITICAL PEOPLE. BY JIM SHOCK

I came up with a list of career opportunities for people with unique skill-sets. Everyone has a gift, what’s yours? I’ll gladly provide references, if you need.

If you stir up crap, be a plumber.
If you create drama, be an actor.
If you judge people, be a critic.
If you backstab, be an acupuncturist.
If you cut others down, be a logger.
If you make up stories, be an author.
If you gossip, be a publicist.
If you lie, be a lobbyist.
If you talk trash, be a garbage man.
If you sling mud, be a drywaller.
If you dig up dirt, be a miner.
If you mess with minds, be a psychologist.
If you are twofaced, be a clown.
If you steal, be a tax collector.
If you exploit feelings, be a bartender.
If you kiss butt, be a salesperson.
If you make something of nothing, be an engineer.
If you control situations, be a coach.
If you exaggerate facts, be a pollster.
If you play with hearts, be a doctor.
If you enjoy pain, be a dentist.
If you stretch truths, be a lawyer.
If you exploit trust, be a legislator.
If you enjoy hurting people, be a boxer.
If you know-it-all, be a professor.
If you push people’s buttons, be an elevator operator.
If you’re a home wrecker, be an excavator operator.
If you spot every blemish, be a dermatologists.
If you manipulate attitudes, be an advertiser.
If you think you’re perfect, be a mannequin.

If you love unconditionally, be a friend!
