I recently read the book; Balcony People written by Joyce Landorf. It describes the difference between two types of people: Affirmers and Evaluators.
Generally, evaluators are judgmental and critical, always looking for the negative in others.
- Love from the heart – they love with honor and respect. There is no room for a critical and judgmental attitude.
- Listen from the heart – they are always searching for ways to improve their hearing. Evaluators are always talking.
- Affirmers care from the heart; they look for ways to help others. On the other hand, evaluators only care out of self-interest.
What did I learn from reading this book? To love from the heart, listen from the heart, and care from the heart. I have lots of work to do but this would be a great legacy! Let’s commit to becoming affirmers.
