Pointing Out The Good Vs Pointing Out The Bad

"A lie repeated often enough becomes the believable." -Orrin Woodward

Anything we repeat to ourselves becomes believable. Therefor, pointing out the good in people not only allows them to go beyond what they would normally do, it also helps us notice it more of the good as we have "brainwashed" ourselves in that way.
The opposite is also true, pointing out the bad in people not only makes them worse, it also makes us notice more of the bad.

We should point out the good 10 times more than the bad. There are benefits of pointing out blind spots in people so they can be aware and grow out of it but it shouldn't be all that we focus on. After all, who are we to know what's good and bad in other people?
