In Buddhism, it is advised that if we want to help others to develop positive qualities in speech and actions; we need to focus on our own flaws first. Preach only what you practice, as they say.
If we examine our thoughts, our speech, and our actions regularly and train our mind to think positively, all our flaws will gradually diminish and our positive qualities will surface. The more we reduce our flaws and be positive, the more those around us will benefit and more we will be capable of helping others around us.
“The mind is everything. What you think you become.” Buddha
