I was recently reminded of an important lesson in life. It has been expressed in a number of ways throughout literature and history. An old English proverb, “you catch more flies with honey, than with vinegar,” nicely sums up this lesson.
Affirmation is the cornerstone to success, regardless the occupation, the role you play, or the events in question. If you can remain positive, see the good in those around you, and help them see the good in themselves you will succeed.
This is especially true in those things like marriage, where the needs of one must become the needs of both if the marriage is to flourish and survive.
If, on the other hand, you focus only those things that are troublesome or disheartening you will soon find those problems worsening. We need only look around us at the state of our politics to see the truth of these words.
