Welcome to Day 1 of "48 Days of Power" a forty-eight day series to discuss each power of Robert Greene's "48 Laws of Power."
/u/killyourselfliving  was kind enough to set another subreddit for all of these, but for the first few posts I will xpost here there sub to build awareness (it might get weird and split the conversation, but it's only for the first few posts)
I can't post links here, but it's r/the48lawsofpower
Edit: we'll keep all the main daily posts here.
"Never Outshine The Master"
Always make those above you feel comfortably superior. In your desire to please and impress them, do not go too far in displaying your talents or you might accomplish the opposite - inspire fear and insecurity. Make your masters appear more brilliant than they are and you will attain the heights of power.
Let's hear your thoughts, observances, and transgressions, and kick this thing off! Again, this is no substitute for actually reading the book and is meant as a place to discuss.
