    People Section One Principle: “Don’t criticize, condemn or complain.” Certainly, criticizing others is something that every person has been guilty of at some point or another.

Dale Carnegie asserts, “Instead of condemning people, let’s try to understand them. Let’s try to figure out why they do what they do” (Carnegie, 16). Harsh criticism does nothing…
