Fault-finding Helps Nobody

November Success

Contumely helps nobody; least of all the one who administers it. Pessimistic remarks dampen the enthusiasm of others, discourage honest effort, and react on the grumbler. Chronic fault-finders command no favor with employers or fellow-employees, and are not the ones selected for advancement. Talking failure makes failure easy. A gloomy, melancholy disposition is largely a matter of habit and materially retards one's advancement. It does not matter if one is unconscious of these habits, they all figure in the final result of life work, just the same. Watch your chance remarks. Make them count for hope and encouragement.—November Success.
