Getting More People to Like You

  1. Practice the awesome power of listening – even in a world of self-absorption, people respond to those who show a sincere desire to listen without commenting, augmenting or turning the attention back to them.
  2. Inject others with a good, positive mood – Think about the people you respect and like to be around. They make you feel good.  That’s who you want to be.
  3. Appreciate, but don’t flatter – flattery is meaningless words of praise. Appreciation is backed up by specific examples of what you say you appreciate.
  4. Practice diplomacy as the art of letting someone else have your way.    

Openness and empowerment are two qualities that people cannot resist.

Starting Over

Every day is the beginning of a new chapter in your life.

No need to hang onto the past with all its worries or fears.

No need to fear the future that hasn’t happened yet.

Breaking life into one day at a time helps to rejuvenate us and free us from the shackles that have been holding us back the previous day.

New chapter, new opportunity.

Instead of walking around with the cumulative effect of everything that may have gone wrong or worried us, start each new day fresh – with a clean canvass – upon which to create a better day today.

Adopting a Positive Attitude

90% of what happens to us every day is good.

10% of it is bad.

Yet we spend 90% of our time focusing on that 10%.

To guarantee a more positive attitude, focus the majority of your day on the 90% of the things that happen that are good.

Changing People

We can’t.

But few among us don’t fritter away wasted time trying.

The sure way to an unhappy life is to try to change another person.

Accept them with what you perceive as flaws and all and help them without being judgmental or with a goal to transform them because in the end no human has ever permanently changed another person – not with power over them, money or influence.

A More Effective Way to Deal with Enemies

Forgive them and forget them.

Forgive them so that the anger that they provoke does not turn you into them.

And forget them because no good can come from embracing or engaging anyone you feel is your enemy.

The power of forgiveness has two very potent benefits.

One, it lets you rid yourself of mean people.

Two, it gives you the gift of letting go.
