Motivational Quote - What you dislike in another take care to correct in yourself.

SparkPeople's Comments

Itís easy to point out otherís shortcomings. We notice them all the time Ė this guy drives slow, this woman talks about herself all the time, the boss is rarely friendly. We go on and on about othersí futility, but when it comes to ourselves, we conveniently do not seem to notice any problems. Noticing faults in others means nothing if we do not use it to improve ourselves. If you complain about someone who talks about his or herself all the time, understand others will feel the same way about you if you do that. Better yourself by seeing what things others do that annoys you and making the change about yourself. And if you are just as guilty as the next person than perhaps itís time to stop complaining about what they are doing and start accepting it.

Boy, isn't this true!!! It's a good thermometer for knowing oneself, i believe.

I find myself at times being very critical about the "faults" of others but then that quiet voice inside always and I mean always, redirects me back to myself and softly encourages me to " take care of the beam in your own eye before removing the dust speck in your eye." :-o

We keep the focus off of ourselves when we gripe and moan about others. I think we do this to avoid change and responsibility for our own shortcomings. Sometimes we just need to take a nap and realize that it is only a big deal if we make it one.

This means that if you are annoyed by your mother-in-law---- Pause, and think about it, because one day you might have that same "title"... LOL

I feel you recognize annoying traits in others quickly when you possess them yourself. You are familiar with them even if you don't seem to "see" them in your life.
