Meaning: Our Judgement of Others

When you meet a man, you judge him by his clothes; when you leave, you judge him by his heart…

This is a Russian Proverb that had me thinking… How many times in life have we looked at others and judge the way they live or even envied their lifestyle?

But … is that which we are seeing really the lifestyle you would want? Is that lifestyle really so glamorous and without care? Or is it a case of abundance in one part of their life and lack in another?

We should rather take the time to investigate and question the individual directly before judging. 99% of the time our perceptions and judgements are completely incorrect. I have met and worked with millionaires, that has not brought themselves a new outfit or vehicle for the past ten years. In the same breath, I have also met and worked with individuals on the verge of bankruptcy that were driving the latest model of their favourite brand vehicle and wore only the latest fashion trends … but in all cases, the story behind the perspective or is not always a story of a true heart, but rather a lost and wounded soul.

Thus – a word to the wise … don’t judge any book by its cover. The pages might be torn and the cover might be tattered … but the story from cover to cover might just stun your mind and make your soul bleed. Whereas the latest release, still on the shelve neatly sealed in the bookstore … is not worth a second read.

For that matter, do we want to be judge on others perspective of us, instead of the true, naturally authentic individual inside … Just think about it

To our continued success,
