If you are even half as Netflix addicted as I am, you surely have seen House of Cards. Kevin Spacey is playing the Parliamentarian Frank Underwood who tries to gain power and become the president of the United States of America.
I quite often caught myself in admiring who good this role was written and played by Kevin Spacey and I found that the “quotes” of Frank Underwood often have something in them that we should adapt to our daily life.
“If you don’t like how the table is set, turn over the table.”
The first quote and one of the most important. If you are not happy with a situation or you feel mistreated, change it!
„For those of us climbing to the top of the food chain there can be no mercy. There is but one rule: hunt or be hunted.“
This one especially applies to the ones of us working in corporate or agency environment. If you are the person that wants to have a big career – pay attention to this one.
„Never make such big decisions so long after sunset and so far from dawn.“
You can`t quite decide? Sleep another night over the decisison.
„When the tits that big, everybody gets in line.“
We all like beautiful things but what Frank Underwood really wants to say with that is that you have to fight for your goals no matter how many people are around you trying to achieve the same. Focus on the Goal, not on the people around you.
„Insecurity bores me.“
Selbstsicherheit macht attraktiv und imponiert. Glaub immer an dich und deine Ziele und lass dich nicht von Neidern oder Zweiflern abbringen. Standhaftigkeit ist die Lektion dieses Zitats denn wer nicht von sich selbst überzeug ist wird schnell langweilig und seinen wir mal ehrlich: Langweilig sein ist sowas von gar nicht Franks Stil.
„I’ve always loathed the necessity of sleep. Like death, it puts even the most powerful men on their backs.“
Even the most powerful men need to sleep. Award yourself with a little bit of sleep every now and then.
“There’s no better way to overpower a trickle of doubt than with a flood of naked truth.”
Do you know that kind of people who always doubt and see the bad side in things? Always stick to naked facts and the truth.
