The high road truly is the path less traveled. I say that because taking the high road requires thinking and acting in ways that are not natural or common. However, those who practice the High Road Principle become instruments of grace to others and recipients of grace.
People who embrace the high road make excellence their goal. That’s something that can be accomplished if we:
• Care more than others think is wise
• Risk more than others think is safe
• Dream more than others think is practical
•Expect more than others think is possible
• Work more than others think is necessary
When we conduct ourselves according to our highest standards, we are less likely to be defensive and take the low road when attacked by others. I say that because when you know you’ve done all you can do, you can let criticism roll off your back like rain.
John Maxwell — Winning with People
CHOOSE TO TAKE THE HIGH ROAD TODAY,
REGARDLESS OF WHAT OTHERS MAY DO OR SAY.
