Orrin Woodward TEAM-Conflict

Why is it that the greatest leaders of all-time seem to either have rabid fans or rabid critics? The answer is simple: truth polarizes. When a leader leads with his convictions, others, who do not hold the same convictions, will criticize the endeavor. Throughout history, men and women like Mother Theresa, Martin Luther, Sam Walton, Oliver Cromwell, George Washington, and Abraham Lincoln, to name a few, have received mountaintop praise and sewer-based criticisms. In fact, if a person desires to change the world, then he better build a tough skin while maintaining a soft heart, because he will be criticized!  – Orrin woodward

I have seen this in my own LIFE.  As I went out and started my business there were many that criticized what I was doing.  I could never understand why someone would criticize a person for trying to do better and trying to get ahead.  Then one day I was at a Team leadership seminar and I heard the answer.  The speaker said that its like watching a dog that is chasing a rabbit.  The dog is running over plants, through bushes, doing everything he can to try and catch the rabbit.    If the people who were watching the dog couldn’t see the rabbit they would think the dog was crazy.  This is how some of my critics saw me. –bill lewis

It seems amazing to me that in our society today, we feel the need to blow someones elses candle out to make our own light shine. Seek first to understand. Accept, Approve, Appreciate!!

Brian, this is incredible! Before LIFE, I was the dog chasing its tail in my everyday routine, which I was trained to do. Now with the materials in LIFE, my marriage, finances, kids, and most important our spiritual lives are on track for success. Thank you for all you do in helping others make a difference in other peoples lives!!
