Every one has insecurities.

Every one has insecurities.

When you show yourself in the world and display your talents, you naturally stir up all kinds of resentment, envy, and other manifestations of insecurity.

This is to be expected.

You cannot spend your life worrying about others and their pretty feelings, you must take a approach.

Lesson is simple.

Lesson is simple.

If you cannot help being charming and superior, you must learn to avoid such monsters of vanity.

Either that, or find a way to mute your good qualities when in the  the company of a Cesare Borgia.

Never imagine that because the master loves you, you can do anything you want.

Turn the law to your advantage.

Turn the law to your advantage.

First you must flatter and puff up your master.

  • Overt flattery has its limits, it's too direct and obvious.
  • Discrete flattery is mush more powerful.

If you are more talented than your master, then make it seem that you need his expertise.

Commit harmless mistakes that will not hurt you in the long run but will give you the chance to ask for his help.  

Masters admire such requests.

You are more creative than master.

You are more creative than master.

If your ideas are more creative than master, ascribe them to him, is as public a manner as possible.

Make it clear that your advise is merely an echo of his advise.

  • Tone down your humor if necessary.
  • Not to be the cloud that blocks his radiance from others.

Learn from Fouquet or pay the price.

Learn from Fouquet or pay the price.

It is not a weakness to disguise your strengths if in end they lead to power.

By letting other outshine you, you remain in control, instead of being a victim of their insecurity.

This will all come in handy the day you decide to rise above your inferior status.

CURATOR'S NOTE

Always make those above you feel comfortably superior. In your desire to please and impress them, do not go too far in displaying your talents or you might accomplish the opposite-inspire fear and insecurity. Make your masters appear more brilliant than they are and you will attain the heights of power.
