When I become excessively critical towards others, it means I am going in the wrong direction. We are usually very good at spotting mistakes, but we should develop the quality of also spotting goodness. If I can see what is good in others or in situations and go beyond the curtain of negativity, I feel good about myself. If I constantly think “he is wrong”, I instead create a barrier which blocks me from reaching my own goodness.
Cheerfulness keeps up the spirit of the one who possesses it, and brings a smile to the lips of others. Cheerfulness becomes like a magnet of goodwill.
