Self-condemnation is not a strategy for improvement

Share this:

Self-Condemnation is not a Strategy for Improvement Self-condemnation never has been nor ever will be a strategy for doing better or improving performance and results.  However, self-condemnation runs rampant in our world.

Trained in condemnation

Share this:

Trained in Condemnation The world had trained us to condemn (ourselves and others). Kids hear things like, “you are a bad boy or girl.” Schools emphasize what we got wrong.

Share this:

We’ve All Got Our Stories I’ve got a friend who is talented, kind, successful, loved, respected, appreciated, and blessed.

No offense meant

Share this:

No Offense Meant I overheard a conversation today where the guy said, “no offense meant” and then he used a racially derogatory expression to a member of that race.

Persistence, courage, resistance, and risk

Share this:

Persistence, Courage, Resistance and Risk Persistence is a key success factor in any endeavor.
