“I consider my ability to arouse enthusiasm among my people the greatest asset I possess, and the way to develop the best that is in a person is by appreciation and encouragement.
There is nothing else that so kills the ambitions of a person as criticism from superiors.
I never criticize anyone. I believe in giving a person incentive to work.
So I am anxious to praise but loath to find fault. If I like anything, I am hearty in my appreciation and lavish in my praise” – Charles Schwab
Saw this today. It reminded me of these verses:
“Brothers and sisters, think about the things that are good and worthy of praise. Think about the things that are true and honorable and right and pure and beautiful and respected. Do what you learned and received from me, what I told you, and what you saw me do. And the God who gives peace will be with you.” – Philippians 4:8-9
“Good people bring good things out of the good they stored in their hearts. But evil people bring evil things out of the evil they stored in their hearts. People speak the things that are in their hearts.” – Luke 6:45
“So I am anxious to praise but loath to find fault.”
God, help me get here.
