When asked to describe someone in your life, how do you do it? Where do you start? Do you begin with the good or the bad?
A good friend of mine named Todd has an ability to see the best in people. It’s a trait I so admire. When you ask about someone, Todd will always tell you his or her best features. I love that. It’s probably why nearly everyone likes him!
I don’t know if Todd does this on purpose, but it’s a great way to look at life. In your next interaction, spend some mental energy finding the thing you like best about that person…not the other way around.
By constantly looking for good in others, you just might find it.
