16 Jan Self Negativity #KidsDeserveIt
I know that each of us has worked on a team or campus where people complain. Where people are negative. They don’t like a certain person and talk about it all the time. They don’t like a decision that was made and complain to you about it for hours (or sometimes days). The parents are annoying. The kids are annoying. The curriculum, the school board, the central office, the principal, the cafeteria workers, and so on. If we look for just a few minutes it is very easy to find something to be negative about.
And then I find myself doing the exact same thing when I am complimented or encouraged. I deflect the compliment. I say I’m not as good as someone else. I claim you just “caught me on a good day”.
So this week my challenge to you is, try and make it a point to accept any compliments that come your way and take some time to share your brilliant ideas with others.
