Upward and onward

Tuesday September 1, 2009 #151

“Those who are lifting the world upward and onward are those who encourage more than criticize.” 

~Elizabeth Harrison

It is a common human reaction to our own feelings of self-doubt to find faults in others, to look for and call out the negative, to point out how we are better than others.  In so doing, we create a comparison that makes us feel better about ourselves.  Unfortunately, this path not only tears others down, it damages us in the process and only proves the assumption of self-doubt.  Instead, embark on a path of seeing and calling out the positives in others and soon you will find that not only will these people reach higher heights, you too will build your own confidence and sense of well being.
