Thought for the Day ~ By Lisa Scott Life Coach

Always do your best…….your actions and choices will always tell the story of who you are at your core.  Some people will sit on the side lines and critique everything without ever offering a solution. They seem focused on catching people doing things wrong……. and of course it is a thousand times easier to criticize than to create….that’s why critics are never problem solvers.  True leaders are interested in not only identifying problems but in pursuing solutions……..they balance their efforts between the task at hand and the needs and hearts of the bigger picture. 

They consider what is, but they also consider what is possible and they encourage the pursuit of both.  Conversely, people who find fault with everything, manipulate people and situations so that they can satisfy their own selfish needs.  They make choices and take action that is self-serving and when their world is turned upside down they come out swinging……expecting once again to have their own opinions and desires respected.  Our legacy lies in how we approach our world and the people in it……what is your legacy saying?

Stephen R. Covey said “Principled people are not extremists – they do not make everything all or nothing.  They do not divide everything into good or bad, or either or….they think in terms of continuum’s  priorities, hierarchies.  You can’t talk your way out of a problem you behaved your way into.”
