A speaker held up a blank sheet of paper and asked, “What do you see?”
The reply was, “A piece of paper.”
He then placed the paper on the podium, made a tiny dot in the center and held it up again. “What do you see now?”
“A dot,” was the unanimous reply from the audience.
“Imagine this blank paper is a person,” the speaker said. “The small dot you saw is his/her biggest fault. The white surrounding the dot represents all of this person’s worthwhile qualities which we so easily fail to see. Often a fault seems bigger than it really is and we allow it to overshadow the many positive aspects of that person’s personality.”
