What people remember of you

It is said that people will duplicate 100% of what you do wrong and 50% of what you do right. From what I’ve noticed, they not only will duplicate 100% of what you do wrong, they will also remember what you did wrong longer than what you did right.

Have you ever had someone come to you and say “You didn’t do this right” and in your head you’re like “It’s true that I did it wrong this time but I did do it right for the pass 2 weeks and I saw you do it wrong as well.”

Strong minded people are hard on themselves and easy on others. Weak minded people are hard on others and easy on themselves.

The easiest way to deal with a situation like that is to agree with the other person. Defending your position will only create an argument.

It’s human nature to notice the wrong in the world and in the people instead of noticing the right. You will hear more about the artist who had an affair than the comedian who’s been in a happy marriage for 20 years.
