SELF-MINDED OR OTHER-MINDED?????

8370903_snegativity
To be a leader or a nurturer we must learn to be other-minded, instead of self-minded. Put others first instead of putting our-selves first. It would be good to always be able to put ourselves in others people’s place before we judge them by what they do.
 A poor self-concept can have all kinds of negative effects on a person’s life. Poet T.S. Eliot says, “Half of the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important.”
 
The rewards of leading and nurturing are many, when you nurturer people the rewards are many.
 
1.   A POSITIVE SELF-WORTH
Everyone needs help with their self-worth. We all have a background, a past that we most likely need to overcome. A healthy self-image comes from how you think and feel about yourself. When you help build up other people you help them with feeling better about themselves. EVERYONE needs to be lifted up and nurtured.
 
2.   A SENSE OF BELONGING:
 Belonging is one of humans basic needs. Everyone want to feel like they belong to something or someone. This is the reason why so many people join all the different clubs that are available to them. They join so they feel like they belong to something. This is an important need in everyone’s life.
 
3.   A GOOD HEALTHY PERSPECTIVE:
 Another thing people receive when they are nurtured is a better, perspective on themselves. Most of the time we get and see the negative side of life and not enough of the positive side of life. For most people it’s not what they are that holds, it’s what they think they’re not.
 
4.   FEELING OF SIGNIFICANCE:
 WOODY ALLEN ONCE QUIPPED, ” My only regret in life is that I’m not someone else.” He probably said that to get a laugh but the sad fact is that a lot of people are always wanting to be something or someone else rather then themselves.
 
5.   THEY RECEIVE HOPE:
 Mark Twain warned, ” Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions, small people always do that.” The key to how you treat people lies in how you think about them. It’s a matter of attitude. HOW YOU ACT REVEALS WHAT YOU BELIEVE.
“Treat a man as he appears to be and you make him worse. But treat a man as if he already was what he potentially could be, and you make him what he could be.”
 
BE A LEADER, BE A NURTURER AND SEE THE GROWTH IN PEOPLE.
