Hidden agendas

The human condition is inevitably tragic and I say that with the best of intentions. We’ve come to live in a world where people have their own agendas. This continues to be exemplified by the political events in the UK and those that have emerged throughout the US election.

Those events have shown how prevalent hidden agendas really are and the thought process behind some of the decisions that were made and that continue to be made, which weren’t made public. It is particularly sad when we keep thoughts to ourselves in order to feather our own nests and is the reason why we have already chosen not to disclose them.

For the rest of us it is feasibly possible that those with an agenda genuinely don’t want to concern us, particularly if it’s something they’re struggling to deal with, or it could be what they are feeding us is what they want us to hear and not what we need to know.

It’s vital that what people see is what they get. Being open, transparent and honest not only works better with everyone, but works better with the universe and is the way the universe expects us to go. We will and can never expect to succeed when we go against that which is expected of us.

For all of us how we communicate, what we disclose is the difference between winning, failing and falling out, or others simply walking away. What others see is what they should get, not what we give them. Life shouldn’t be about agendas and yet we insist on making our lives like that and expecting others to fall into line.

Personally, I have never chosen to buy into that kind of lifestyle. With me what you see is what you get. Perhaps it’s the honesty that people find difficult that drives them into a hidden agenda scenario. Either way it’s wrong.

Life itself should be about communication, being upfront and us working through things, so that it brings people together, not split them up.

  1. Over the years I have come across many people who clearly had hidden agendas in the way you describe, which became obvious over time. Hidden agendas certainly don’t make for easy relationships.

    The trouble with hidden agendas, is that you never know where you stand and whether you are being used as part of that person’s plan.

    1. Thank you. Yes, I have too. I personally find it sad that more and more of us work with hidden agendas and hide behind a facade associated with life. I believe that the more open and honest we are, the easier our life will be, although we can’t always see that it is.

      I believe we make life more difficult because we’re not being open and honest about our life, or with other people. If anything we’d have more support. It’s not easy dealing with people who have hidden agendas.

  2. I’ve always had a sense that my life wasn’t really in my own hands, that nameless individuals with hidden agendas were plotting awful things; like politicians who give the appearance of saviours.

    That’s why I find this political season so unsettling; the agendas and how easily our lives can change for the worse.

    1. I understand how you feel Tim. My life too has never been in my own hands, even when I had my independence, I never really had it. Others have their agendas which we will be expected to work round.

      When it comes to politics, lives can become even more unsettling, because we have even less control. The UK had the EU Referendum and are still feeling the repercussions after Brexit. The Politicians still can’t agree with each other and still think the public don’t understand their squabbling and are stupid!

      Agendas aside we need to be able to look to the future with confidence and with the right person in the job. With the US going to the polls tomorrow, there will be more uncertain times ahead; but I agree how easily our lives can change for the worse with the wrong people in charge.
