S:0486 Principle: Well Dogs and Sick Dogs

(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


There is an old Southern (U.S.) saying,

“[If]You put a well dog in a room with a sick dog,
you shouldn’t expect the sick dog to get well.”

Attempts at veterinary medicine aside, you can see the wisdom in this.

Look at the relationships in your life — business, personal, and familial. It’s better to be the well one, of course, but it’s also useful to have a clear-eyed look at the people who are around you.


Coaching point: Have you surrounded yourself with “well dogs”?
