Opportunities are often missed when we constantly focus on our problems.
The Health-Care Survivor
When you learn to accept instead of expect, you will have fewer disappointment.
While the Internet has been abuzz with claims that Costco had already dumped Monsanto’s flagship pesticide product, RoundUp, a spokesperson on behalf of the corporation only just announced on May 29 that the company is not planning to sell the product this season.
Since Feb 1, 2019, I was in touch with Costco representatives to confirm or deny the reports that the company will not be carrying Roundup. Finally, after repeated attempts over the last four months Corporate Communications on behalf of Costco Management, at Costco Wholesale Corporation stated the following: “Costco is constantly reviewing its (product) lineup, and is not planning to sell RoundUp this season.”
The timing is not surprising, given that Monsanto, now owned by Bayer AG, just lost three court cases in which the product was alleged to cause cancer.
To learn is to accept the gift of those whose knowledge, experience, talents, and perception of the world, lead to new understanding and opportunities.
Pause before judging. Pause before assuming. Pause before accusing. Pause whenever you’re about to act harshly and you’ll avoid doing and saying things you’ll later regret.
