There are sadistic scientists who hurry to hunt down errors instead of establishing the truth.

—Marie Curie (1920, by Henri Manuel; Public Domain)

We all know the people. Those souls who rush quickly to point out the errors of others rather than searching for the good, striving to move closer to the truth. It becomes such a wired-in habit that most don’t even realize they have developed this character defect. They chronically pay the price, however, for approaching life in this manner; this constant judgment of others repels happiness.

Reject this path. Continually look for ways to move forward in a positive, loving manner. Do this, and your life will be filled with peace and balance.

There is at least one point in the history of any company when you have to change dramatically to rise to the next level of performance. Miss that moment – and you start to decline.

When possible, make the decision now, even if action is in the future. A reviewed decision usually is better than one reached at the last moment.

—William B. Given, Jr. (photo by Pixabay; Free Use)

If you wish to shape your future, one of the best methods involves visualizing, with as much clarity as possible, what that future looks like—right down to the details. And when you drill down to this granular level, you will actually be able to see some of the decision points you will reach on your journey. When your arrive upon one in your mind, try to experience it fully. Decide now how you will respond when you get there, and simply recall your decision when you actually arrive at this point. You will be amazed at your developed ability to control future outcomes in your life.
