Judgement is a two-edge sword. We use it in our daily dealings. It helps us assess situation and make decision. But, in doing so, we see the “negatives” in others. Nose too big, color too bright, too slow, not fast enough, too expensive, etc. In judgement, we criticize.
Thus, results a win-lose proposition or a comparison mentality. Somebody wins and other loses. But it needs not be this way. Wouldn’t it be better to have a win-win outcome instead? Like the case of a satisfied customer where a win exists for both the buyer and the seller.
How do we achieve a win-win? I suggest to look for the good in others. Sure, no one is perfect, but no one is totally a loser either. Seek the positives and you shall find. Compliment people on small details or deeds will set you on the right path. You will have a better chance for a satisfied experience.
More so, when confronted with negative people or situation. Crank up a notch and challenge yourself to look for the good in them. Persist. Remind yourself with the proverbial “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.” And the effort will be worth it.
Because we all can use more positive energy.
Do you believe that you can find the good in every situation?
