TeamBig10's insight:

Excellent advice. One bad apple can ruin the whole bunch. Negativity never helps, only hurts, and slows down our progress. You put more energy into digging a hole, than staying out of it, so that by the time you realize you are in a very deep one, you are too tired to climb out right away.
