Be generous to grow.
People often don’t say anything when you do the right things. But they do when you make a mistake — even a tiny one.
It often happens at a job performance review in a workplace. You wouldn’t get a credit for thousands of things you did right, but you would get a minus for a few things you didn’t do well. All of us don’t want to see that happen to us, but we also have to reflect on ourselves and see if we do the same thing to others.
To accept our own mistakes, misunderstanding or oversight is relatively easy. To accept these things of others is not always so easy. But we have to work really hard on it – because being generous to other people’s behavior is vital to live with the growth mindset.
