Seek the Good in Others
October 5, 2009
This is not about being a do-gooder.
It is about being smart, efficient and productive.
It is about making your life easy.
When you look for the good in others, they show it to you.
When you appreciate their worth, others find it easy to be their best.
When you accept others, they do not fear rejection. They show their strengths instead of concealing their weaknesses. They act confident instead of afraid.
Other people want someone to notice that they are good and valuable. They want to belong and be thought of as special.
They need someone to believe in them.
Looking forthe good is that belief.
Look for the good in the other person, especially when he or she has been troublesome, did wrong, or is on probation. Do not ignore his or her problems, but continue to encourage the good.
Anyone who doubts can find failings.
Finding the good takes belief.
When you bring out the good in someone, you often discover a powerful ally, a loyal worker, a true friend.
The search for the good is its own reward.
The discovery of that good is never forgotten.
When you look for the good in others, you often discover your own best and find another reason to believe in yourself.
