Lou Ludwig Success Tips: Don’t Be Judgmental of Others

Don’t Be Judgmental of Others



Motivational Power Quote

Don't Be Judgmental of Others


"When you judge another,

you do not define them,

you define yourself."

Thomas A. Edison, inventor



As I see it. . . . . . . .

Don't be judgmental of others. 

How we judge others will define us as a person.  

Don't criticize, condemn, or complaint about others.    

Be slow to judge someone get to know them as a person, understand them and know all the facts.

Make your judgments based on fact not the person.  

Make decisions based on the facts and what has to be resolved; and what you can do to get it done.  

When we judge others we don't define them we define ourselves though our thinking.

So true Lou. It's like speaking into a mirror when we do that to someone. We are speaking/defining ourselves.

Lou, I think this is one THE most important things to practice in every moment. For me, I need to practice patience. To listen so I really hear and be open to other points of view.

This is one of the very best quotes that I have seen and it bears memorizing.  Wonderful. Thank you!

OUCH!  As a pastor used to say, "If you can't say amen they say ouch!"  :-)

We are probably all guilty of being too judgemental at times.  In most cases, it is just a matter of trying to boast ourselves up while bringing someone else down. 

Thanks for a much needed reminder.

Lou, good advice for certain. You know it's easy to criticize when you don't have to walk in another's shoes.
