Inside this Book – Some people play the power game for money, some for security or fame, others for sex, most for some combination of these objectives. The master players (some of whose games we shall study) seek power itself, knowing that power can be used to obtain money, sex, security or fame. None of these alone constitutes power; but power can produce them all. No matter who you are, the basic truth is that your interests are nobody else’s concern, your gain is inevitably someone else’s loss, your failure someone else’s victory. In the words of Heinrich von Treitscheke, the German philosopher of might, “Your neighbor, even though he may look upon you as his natural ally against another power which is feared by you both, is always ready, at the first opportunity, as soon as it can be done with safety, to better himself at your expense . . . Whoever fails to increase his power, must decrease it, if others increase theirs.”‘ It would be difficult to sum up the position of the average person more succinctly than this. Von Treitscheke’s analysis of the human condition, despite what might at first reading seem to be a familiar streak of German paranoia and depression, in fact applies to a good many jobs, marriages and love affairs, and represents, for a lot of people, a way of life. Since the people who live their lives along these lines have a marked tendency to find their way into positions of power that threaten or block the rest of us, learning to play the power game is a means of self-defense.
Inside this book –Power PDF Book by Michael Korda – It helps to have a large face, with at least one overpowering feature—General de Gaulle’s nose or President Johnson’s ears are examples—but failing this gift from the gods or the laws of genetics, the apprentice power-seeker would do well to take a good look at himself (or herself) in the mirror, thus putting to good use the time that would otherwise be wasted in merely shaving or making-up. After all, when people look at you, your face is the first thing they see, and very possibly the only thing they’ll remember. You might think there is little you can do about your face, short of plastic surgery, but this is not altogether true. We live behind our faces, while they front for us. We may easily ignore how badly they are serving us. Try looking in the mirror, and saying, in a firm, reasonable and believable voice, “I think my work entitles me to more money than I’m making now, and I know I can get more, as a matter of fact, but I’d prefer to stay here.” If your eyes look shifty and blink a lot, and your lovver jaw is pushed forward pugnaciously, your face is giving you away, and in a real encounter your superior will probably conclude that you don’t have any job offers and probably don’t even believe that your work is worth what you’re already making. By practicing in front of a mirror, it is possible to develop a firm, trustworthy gaze, and a confident, relaxed mouth.* We may not be able to make ourselves *Facial “power problems” include licking the lips and biting them, any twitch of the mouth, particularly at the corners, blinking and excessive eye movement.
