"Instead of putting others down, try improving yourself instead. The only person you have the right to compete with is you. In the meantime, treat others how you'd like to be treated. One trait that some of the best communicators share is empathy. A couple of kind words can not only make a person's day, but can earn you a friend and supporter for life. For the rest of the week, whenever you see someone, you want to judge negatively, pay them a compliment instead. See what happens."
