No one ever becomes their best by focusing on someone else’s flaws.

No one ever becomes their best by focusing on someone else’s flaws. – Jon Gordon
There are times I get stuck trying to “solve” other people’s problems. There are times I become fixated on that one person, or that small group, that I want to educate and prepare for the future. It’s easy to identify what others can do better to meet my needs – it is me on autopilot; it is me being undisciplined.
A discipline life requires more of us . . . it requires us to focus on ourselves and our flaws so that we can better serve others. When I am at my best, I am focused on my behavior, on my flaws, so I can live my passion for growth.
Today when you find yourself thinking about someone else’s flaws stop – press pause – and think about what you can do to improve your response to the situation. Focus on what you can control – that’s you!
