A reason to update your library card

Kanye has found a new way to cash in, this time it's self help books. The following quotes are definitly something to think about and he hits the nail right on the head. BUT aren't these the same antics and approach 48 Laws of Power took? I mean I'm just's an observation.

Get Used to Getting Used
“To most people, the saying ‘to use someone’ carries a negative connotation. But I don’t see it that way. To ‘mis,’ ‘over’ or ‘ab’-use someone is negative. To use is necessary. And if you can’t be used, you’re useless.”

The Missing Banister Theory
“When walking down the street, you can walk in one line perfectly without ever falling over. Now take that same city block, make it a foot wider and then put it a hundred stories high. You’re going to be so focused on the fact that you don’t have a banister that you’re more likely to fall because of it. When you’re so focused on what you don’t have . . . you won’t have.”

Be Leery of the Free Gift Bag!
There are some people that will try to put themselves in a position so that you owe them something. There entire M.O is “I did this for you , now you have to do this for me”. Don’t let people think you owe them something. That puts you in a position of weakness. If they choose to give, that’s their choice. You don’t owe them anything!
