Teflon Man is a name I have for people that never accept accountability for anything … as we all know, nothing sticks to Teflon!
We have all met them … it is never their fault, no matter what it is!
The reggae singer Shaggy has a song “It Wasn’t Me” … its about a man who gets caught with another woman by his girlfriend. There really is no doubt about his infidelity, but the advice from his friend is to deny, deny, deny … it wasn’t him!
Know anyone like that?
It is particularly galling when these people have some success, or perceived success … and it has to be on the backs of people who actually “do stuff”. I guess the only consolation I allow myself is that I am not Teflon Man … it would be hard to live with myself if I was.
Live your life with integrity … accept your failures along with your successes, that is how we learn and grow. It is also how we gain respect of those around us and build credibility.
I think you will also like yourself a lot more!!!
