real power is about exchange not subordinate

Violence and seduction are a ticking bomb. I think it goes back to the powerlessness some people feel. They feel so emasculated that they get angry or seek attention from a place that they shouldn’t. For someone to get off on another person screaming, the wires have got crossed somewhere. When you’re dealing with people with real power they only want you if you’re willing. It’s about the dance between you and them.

 

Real power is about exchange, not subordination.

 

For some people a powerful man is a bully. He’s powerful because he scares people. And I would say that’s not a powerful man – that’s an intimidating man, a man who uses intimidation tactics. A powerful man is a man that knows who he is and doesn’t need to manipulate people to get what he wants
