It is easy to make judgements on people, whether it is something we see or something we hear. We have to realize that those judgements are usually based on a limited amount of information. When we make comments, our words can hurt especially if you have not really taken the time to understand. On today’s episode, Matthew talks about the importance of stopping and thinking before we comment or say something that may not necessarily be true, that constructive criticism is still just criticism, and the simplicity of sharing an act of kindness.

About the Host:
Matthew Cox spent his elementary and middle school years thinking there was something wrong with his brain. For him, schoolwork was a daunting, frustrating, and often embarrassing challenge. He was the kid who never seemed to catch up with his classmates, no matter how hard he tried. “Growing up with a disability was like having an elephant in the room that nobody wants to talk about,” Matthew explained. Being diagnosed with a learning disability during high school helped he finally put a name to the problem, and to begin his journey to personal and academic success. “I’ve learned to befriend my elephant, I’ve named him George,” Matthew said. “George is not going away but I can choose how I feel about him.”
Through his own experience, Matthew knows what it means to be a teenager in trouble as well as what it takes to run a business. Matthew brings inspiration, humor, and practical strategies during his speaking engagements, inspiring change to those he works with.
Thanks to family members and caring adults in his life, Matthew was able to overcome the hardship of his disability and has dedicated his life to helping others find their purpose and help families succeed.
