Stop rewarding bad behavior

MY GRIND AND SHINE for today: 07/29/2016 2:11am
Today is about rewarding bad behavior

I have come across many people who tend to cry about how they were treated then praise the very people who have mistreated them over and over. Several issues arise out of this type of behavior, please see the list below:

1. You give the abusers permission to keep doing what they do; they know there is no reprimand for their actions.
2. You are living a lie not only to yourself but to those who look to you for guidance and advice. Those people may let the abuser in and the cycle will start all over again.
3. It makes me question your sanity and motives. Why do you cry about the abuse then boast to the world how great the person is and how much you love them? Something is not right somewhere in the scenario.

IN business when folks wrong me they are erased, no mention, photo or thought of them is found. You see, when you become successful they will be the first ones to use the prior association to their advantage. In life I have learned how to let go to those who have wronged me over and over, time and time again. Never praise wrong doers because they are smart enough to use your own praise against you once or if you ever FIND YOUR COURAGE to walk away.

I learned how to walk away under the worst of circumstances; it was a lonely journey but a necessary one.

Our FOCUS for Today: Stop rewarding bad behavior!
