The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Do not assume you are your own harshest critic

Do not assume your perceptions of others are unbiased or fair or reasonable.

Do not be blinded by the worst in people.

 

Success Key: find the growth that aligns with both the pessimists’ good habits and the optimists’ interests in new things.

The common ground where optimists and pessimists can stand together and self-actualize together is – Growth....all entrepreneurial leaders love to build and grow things.

The choice is yours.

Choose fixing the problem over fixing the blame.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

If everyone watered down their self-confidence in an effort to conform to the average then every competition would end in an across-the-board tie...with everyone finishing either first or last.

[First? or Last?...what a conundrum...with everyone average there would be no pessimists or optimists to argue one way or the other.]
