People tend to “judge” others on superficial characteristics. That FIRST impression is the one that “matters most,” right? Isn’t that what we’ve all been told? Well, I disagree. Folks, we are all struggling each day, simply seeking to survive “LIFE”. Everyone has their own personalized plate of “stuff”. NO DOUBT ABOUT IT!!!
The way people are treated has a huge impact on the person they become. You can see this everyday. Look at those individuals who are spoken “down” to…don’t they seem to shrink or wither away in terms of their noted presence? SOMEBODY, SOMEWHERE… will be forming negative impressions of them . Those individuals, however, who are nurtured tend to grow bigger in all areas, such as, confidence, presence, contribution, etc. This will result in positive impressions, right?
Treating individuals with common respect allows them opportunity for personal growth. Isn’t that what we want? People coming out of their shells to be all that they can be as opposed to withering away due to disrespect? Think about that hard, folks. Helping other individuals to gain confidence, simply by being treated with the respect they deserve, strengthens ALL of those teams to which they belong. Aaahhh!!! Strength. Strong individuals. Strong teams. SUCCESS!!!
SUCCESS!!! That is what we ALL want, right? WE ARE ALL IN IT TO WIN IT, RIGHT??? P.H.P., folks. People Helping People. EVERYONE…giving the BEST of themselves for “JUST” today…EVERYDAY!!!
Folks, I am asking EVERYONE… to please take a good look at yourself. Do you nurture your teammates, encouraging personal growth, thereby resulting in TEAM growth? Or do you belittle or “talk down” to them, thereby stiffling their personal growth which hinders TEAM growth?
THIS IS HUGE, FOLKS. WE HAVE THAT ABILITY TO STRENGTHEN ALL OF THOSE TEAMS TO WHICH WE EACH BELONG…BY ENCOURAGING PERSONAL GROWTH. HOW??? SIMPLY BY TREATING ALL OF YOUR TEAMMATES WITH THE RESPECT THEY DESERVE!!! (Those who don’t deserve your respect…need it the MOST!!!)
GO TEAM!!! WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!
