Don’t EVER make this Mistake!

Human beings are funny creatures. Rarely do we use logic to decide much of anything. We are all fueled by emotion.

Pride, ego, self-esteem, and judgment help form our beliefs. We hold on to them dearly. Let’s keep this in mind the next time we decide to tell someone he or she is wrong.

When we tell people they are wrong, that man or women will take it as a personal insult. They will dig in, fight, and argue to protect their belief. It’s an attack on their ego. It won’t do anyone any good.

Instead try this approach. Say nothing! That’s right just sit there and let that fellow boast on and on. Listen to what he’s really saying. You’ll find he’s only starving to have his precious ego fed.

Why is it that we all find it so gratifying to tell someone he or she is wrong? Why is it that we’re so quick to find fault with other people?

Yes, human nature is a funny thing. The next time we feel the urge to tell someone they’re wrong, let’s take a step back. Let them get the psychological sunshine they need. We might just find it makes our day a little nicer too.
