When someone fails and you get the change to say
“I told you…”
“I said this is going to happen..”
“I knew this is going to happen…”
If you catch yourself feeling like a winner, smart or anything positive in that situation – Think again.
You are being a smartass. You have failed.
It is your failure and your weakness. If you told them that whatever they are going to do is going to fail. You were not convincing enough.
If you just knew and did not help them to succeed. You perhaps told your view to someone not involved and now you are saying “I knew it is not going to work..” You have failed even more.
If you did nothing. You should not even open your mouth.
What do you think?
