A Powerful Mindset Shift: “Everyone is Doing Their Best”

Do you want to be more helpful and have more impact in your conversations?

A friend of mine, Caroline asked an important question: 

“Do you think most people are doing the best job they can?”

I responded:

“It doesn’t matter if they are or not. But if I treat every interaction with the mindset that others ARE doing their best, MY best comes out. I am more empathetic, more accommodating, and I’m in a place where I can serve them better.”

It is easy to forget that you control how you respond to others. I have forgotten this over and over in life, and it’s something I need to be reminded of often. 

Who can you apply this mindset to and improve your relationship? It could be a coworker, a family member, or maybe both!
