If you want to grow, if you want to learn,
you must surround yourself with
people who are not afraid to tell
you what you need to hear,
not what you want to hear.
And you must be willing to learn from them.
In the words of Napoleon Hill, "SEEK the counsel
of men who will tell you the truth about
yourself, even if it hurts you to hear it.
Mere commendation will not bring the
improvement you need."
As human beings, even when we don't say it,
we are ALWAYS looking for people who will make us
feel good about ourselves.
We want to be around people who believe in us,
who support us, who want us to succeed,
who are not scared to tell us where we are wrong.
But to make others feel good about themselves,
all you need to do is treat them as human beings.
According to John Maxwell and Rob Hoskins'
"When we believe in people, support them,
bring out their best, speak truth to them, and
inspire them, we help them to be their best selves."
When you are yourself, your best self, you
can see the best in other people.
Wherever you go, make it a habit to always
look for the best in things, in people.
When you do, the best will follow you.
