“There are two ways of exerting one’s strength:
one is pushing down,
the other is pulling up.”
-BOOKER T. WASHINGTON
I’ve seen a countless number of athletes in my life, and I’ve observed many of them putting others down to make themselves look good.
This usually results from insecurity, or large ego.
The great athletes don’t push others down, they pull them up.
These are the leaders.
They compliment and encourage. They help others play better.
If you are a builder-upper instead of a breaker-downer, you will help your team (and world) become better.
