Why Leadership Speakers Say You Should Not Be Judgemental

Leadership speakers often say being judgmental will hurt current and potential relations. It can also make you closed minded toward new ideas.

There is Someone Better

Leadership speakers often say we should avoid comparing ourselves to others because of this often has a negative impact on our self-esteem. The primary reason why you should never even think about comparing yourself is that there is always someone better than you somewhere, somehow. In most cases, if you start comparing yourself, you will find this person and it will bring you down. Secondly, there are higher chances that you can develop false pride if you meet someone who you think isn’t as good as you are. You many start to think that everyone is below you, which is something you want to avoid when interacting with other people.

Don’t Judge

Thirdly, when you start comparing yourself to other people you will eventually be forced to expose their weaknesses so that people might recognize or appreciate you. In the end, this can hurt relations and will interfere with your ability to build any relations in the future. Lastly, when you compare, you are most likely to turn into a judgemental character. As a human, you can’t grow if you judge, because you fail to embrace and appreciate others around you and new ideas. No one can ever know another person inside out and hence, no reason to judge. Leadership speakers will tell you that each person has their own life experiences and we shouldn’t judge unless we have ‘walked a mile in their shoes.’

In conclusion, it will never profit you to compare yourself to others. If anything, it creates, as leadership speakers call it, a cycle of thought for yourself where you constantly worry about the next person instead of focusing on yourself.

Be a Good Friend and Expect the Same from Others

  Be a good friend to everyone in your life, from friends to family to co-workers.


Be a good friend to everyone in your life,
from friends to family to co-workers.

Whether you’re talking about a relationship with a spouse, girlfriend or boyfriend, co-worker, family member, or just a friend, you can apply the same basic principles. If you are good to your friends, you will likely be good in other relationships as well.

Being a good friend is important. You have to learn to think of others and be willing to put their needs ahead of your own, at least part of the time. And you should be able to expect the same of them.

To be a good friend doesn’t mean all giving and no getting in return. Indeed, if you find yourself in a relationship of any kind that is not mutually supportive, you should end it if possible, and quickly, as it can take a great toll on your well-being.

However, it is equally important that you don’t behave as that kind of “friend” as well. You owe it to yourself, and to society in general, to be a kind, caring person and to help others when you are in a position to do so. In return, you should reasonably expect the same from other human beings.

Take Chances When They Feel Right

Sometimes when you feel like a chance is worth taking, you should just take the plunge.

It seems like certain people never think before they act. That can be a dangerous way to live. However, living life in an overly cautious manner can be the wrong way to go as well. You should try to find a balance between the two, and take chances occasionally, at least when it feels really right.

Planning and a positive attitude will take you very far in life, but unless you’re willing to take a bigger chance every once in a while, great successes may be out of your reach. Most people cannot afford to take big chances all the time, but through an occasional decision that’s a bit out of your norm, you can score big.

Whether it’s an investment that could result in a big payoff or a relationship choice with someone who isn’t normally your type, you may want to proceed with caution. But if it really feels like the right thing to do, your instincts may be right.

Of course you shouldn’t do anything that will put you or your family in danger, but if you want something badly, and it you think it will be worth the risk, you may be right.

The Best Way to Escape Loneliness

Life can get lonely at times, whether you live alone, or with a large family, or anything in between. If you’re not getting along with your spouse, life can feel even lonelier than when you are on your own.

Perhaps even more than it is a physical state, loneliness is more a matter of your attitude

Obviously, one way to escape loneliness is to seek out people who you feel comfortable with. It’s not only important to be around people, but it’s less lonely if you find others with whom you can share your thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment.

In addition, you need to feel comfortable with yourself. Loving yourself and thinking positive about life can always help you to feel less lonely.  Not only will you feel less lonely, but you will also likely draw more people with a positive attitude than you would by projecting a negative attitude.

Once you are able to enjoy time on your own, spending time connecting with others can become easier. If you’re in a relationship where you’re feeling distant from one another, taking on a more positive way of thinking and talking to one another can help close that gap as well, and that feeling of being all alone can become a thing of the past.
