Never judge others, no matter how smart, experienced you are. You don’t know their story.
Her mum came in and softly asked her little daughter with a smile: “My sweetie, could you give your mum one of your two apples”? The girl looked up at her mum for some seconds, then she suddenly took a quick bite on one apple, and then quickly on the other!
The mum felt the smile on her face freeze, she tried hard not to reveal her disappointment! Then, the little girl handed one of her bitten apples to her mum,and said: “Mummy, here you are, this is the sweeter one!!
No matter who you are, how experienced you are, and how knowledgeable you think you are, always delay judgement. Give others the privilege to explain themselves. What you see may not be the reality.
Never conclude for others.

I learnt from Milton Erickson that everyone is OK and everyone has good intention. These principles help me to trust others and stop judging others. As a coach, this principle is crucial to help empower others to be the best that they can be.
And I feel lighter and happier this way.
So, my dear friends, how are you going to stop yourself from judging others?
Why is it important for you?
