Leaders Build, Not Tear Down

Today, my favorite read had to be this article by Meredith Bell about being critical of other people, especially those that you work with.

If you tend to think or speak critically about others, there’s something going on within you that needs to be examined. There is some aspect of your own self that you find unacceptable, but you may not want to look in the mirror. It’s much easier to turn your attention outward and find fault with those around you.

When we self-analyze, many times we can find that it is our problems that are the true issue and not the actions of others.

“Practice treating other people as if they had value, and surprisingly, your own self-esteem will go up.” – Maxwell Maltz in The New Psycho-Cybernetics
