To succeed in the world it is not enough to be stupid, you must also be well-mannered. - Voltaire
Yes sir! Yes ma’am! Ok sir! Ok ma’am; are all ways to show respect. This same sign of respect is regarded by those who are void of wisdom, as stupidity.
Acting like you are "stupid" (as they call it) is the best medicine for your soul as well as your quest for success.
Wherever you are working or wherever you are posted for an assignment; keep at being “foolish” and walk your way “foolishly” to the top. See you at the top!
