Equip Yourself For Excellemce.

Before doubting, ……………….. give others the benefit of the doubt.

Steve Jobs once said this;

“Again you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your guts, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.”

With so many varied and unique personalities around us, it is inevitable our friendships with others will hit some bumps along the way. Drawing conclusions before we have a clear understanding of what actually transpired is certainly not acceptable.

In spite of everything, I believe the best of people. I think people are generally good at heart. At times we may see life through a narrow perspective. Be mindful, good friends realize everyone has shortcomings. They down play touchy situations that occasionally arise. So open your mind to the possibility that there may be unavoidable circumstances that had nothing to do with ill feelings toward you ………… Give others the benefit of the doubt.

Warmest wishes in all your undertakings for the day and God Bless.

    I love the topic in the society I don’t know why we just don’t give people the benefit of the doubt. Everyone needs a chance and we should give it to them….

    One could say this about one siblings, one’s parents and even one’s spouse. How often does jumping to conclusions ruin a beloved relationship.

    Micheal, you are such a sweet trusting soul. I try to think the best of people, but keep in mind, we’re in the middle of an election year…which makes it hard sometimes, with all of the corrupt politicians always stirring the pot. I wish everybody had your outlook, then indeed, we might all be able to lay down our gaurd and live in peace among one another.

  11. Now that’s what I’m talking about! Lovin’ this post Michael Lovin’ it!!!!😀
