    • 6. The Theory of the Dipper and the Bucket <ul><li>Each of us has an invisible bucket. It is constantly emptied or filled, depending on what others say or do to us. </li></ul><ul><li>When our bucket is full, we feel great. </li></ul><ul><li>When it's empty, we feel awful. </li></ul>
    • 7. The Theory of the Dipper and the Bucket <ul><li>Each of us also has an invisible dipper . When we use that dipper to fill other people's buckets </li></ul><ul><li>by saying or doing things to increase their positive emotions,  </li></ul><ul><li>-- we also fill our own bucket . </li></ul>
    • 8. The Theory of the Dipper and the Bucket <ul><li>But when we use that dipper to dip from others' buckets  </li></ul><ul><li>-- by saying or doing things that decrease their positive emotions  </li></ul><ul><li>-- we diminish ourselves. </li></ul>

    • 11. The Theory of the Dipper and the Bucket <ul><li>So we face a choice every moment of every day: </li></ul><ul><li>We can fill one another's buckets . </li></ul><ul><li>or </li></ul><ul><li>We can dip from them. </li></ul>
