Often times as parents, teachers & leaders we will focus very hard (sometimes too hard) on improving a child's / employee's flaws. Which is fine, because we want to them to improve. However, if we focus too hard on their flaws and the things they are NOT doing correctly, then we tend to overlook all the good things they are doing. Now, I'm not saying that we don't discipline misbehavior or poor performances, because to achieve any type of success we have to continually motivate our children / employees to do better. 
But, when we focus too hard on finding flaws, that's all we're going to find. And, to continually point out all these flaws with no positive motivation on what the child / employee has done correctly, will eventually take a negative toll on their overall performance. 
Think of our theme: E+R=O. The "Event" is the behaviors (their flaws), the "Response" is our actions toward those behaviors, and the "Outcome" is what becomes of our response. The child / employee is either motivated to try harder and do their best to improve, or feel belittled and worthless and eventually give up altogether. 

Try to actively focus on finding things your child / employee is doing correctly, and praise them in front of others, this will be a positive boost to their self-esteem and you'll also find that they will work harder to receive this praise again. Shortly after this public praise, find a way to tie the good performance to an area that they could use improvement. An example would be; "great job on getting an "A" on your math test, I know you studied hard and now you feel great, just think about how great you'll feel when you study just as hard and get an "A" on your spelling test." Everyone loves praise and loves to feel important, so remember to use praise to help motivate children / employees to improve their flaws. 
This will require a change in our thought process and will take a little more time, but in the end, the little extra time we spend now will provide priceless rewards later. 

Think about you can apply to this to the events of your own life. I know I have some work to do. How about you?

Have a terrific day.
