Self-Examination

John Maxwell Gives Us Six Habits of Highly Defective People.  I like Maxwell because he challenges the way we think and gives us some tools for self-examination.  How do you rate in these areas?  I know I have some work to do in my own life.

They have a losing attitude: People generally get whatever they expect out of life. Expect the worst, and that’s what you’ll get.

They quit growing. People are what they are, and they are where they are because of what has gone into their minds.

They have no game plan for life. As William Feather, author of The Business of Life says, “There are two kinds of failures: Those who thought and never did, and those who did and never thought.”

They are unwilling to change. Some people would rather cling to what they have rather than embrace what might be better because they are afraid of getting something worse.

They fail in relationships with others. People who cannot get along with others will never get ahead in life.

They are not willing to pay the price for success. The road to success is uphill all the way. Anyone who wants to accomplish much must sacrifice much.
