Someone once asked Mr. Andrew how he dealt with people . Andrew replied, ‘’ Dealing with people is a lot like digging for gold . When you go digging for gold you have to move tons of dirt. But when you go to digging, you don’t go looking for the dirt , you go looking for the gold .’’
He replied a very important message. Though sometimes it may not be apparent there is something positive in every person and every situation . We have to dig deep to look for the positive.
What is your focus ? Search for the gold . If you are looking for what is wrong with people or with things , you will find many faults . What are we looking for ? Gold or dirt ? people find what they are looking for .
