Edition 10 : Positive Attitude

We should try to do these things better :
1) Encourage others to talk about themselves.
2) Talk in the interest ranges of the things that people treasure most when talking to them.
3) Talk to people about themselves & recognize their importance.
4) Respect other people’s good judgement and avoid arguments.
5) Never tell anyone they are wrong, we all will rationalize to the point
of thinking we are unequivocally right.
6) We should criticize ourselves before other people have a chance to; if you
are wrong, admit it!
7) Tread softly, you will go farther.
8) We should try to let our friends feel as though they have excelled us at some
time or another.
9) Let others do a great deal more of the talking.
10) Figure out why other think as they do; look at it from their viewpoint.
11) Show compassion to others (this is yearned for).
12) Treat people with respect, dignity, honesty, truth fulness and willingness;
they will generally emulate those feelings.
13) Challenge others to do something better, never force them.
14) Call attention to mistakes indirectly (don’t broadcast).
15) Make difficulties seem easy to conquer.
16) Praise minutest improvements; and inspire hidden treasures in others.
17) Be friendly.
18) Force yourself to smile! (You will.)
19) Consider other’s good points.
20) Make others want to follow your suggestions.
21) Always appreciate people’s time.
22) Be interested in everyone you meet.
23) Always remember, good manners are made up of petty sacrifices.
24) Remember names; a person’s name is truly the most treasured phrase to
that person’s ears. Use the I.R.A. Principles to help remember name :
I. R. A.
(what do they look like) (Repeat their names 5 times) (What do they do)
25) Try saying this three (3) times, “Act enthusiastic and you’ll be
enthusiastic”, it works.
26) Perfect yourself first, then worry about everyone else.
27) Try to exercise a little sympathy, tolerance and kindness; it goes a lot
further than a short fuse.
28) Learn the difference between appreciation and flattery; one is from the
heart, the other is from the teeth.
29) Accept the fact that everyone is superior to you in one way or another, and
learn from that trait.
30) When not engaged in some definite problem-solving, most people think of
themselves 95% of the time. If we could cut it to 50%, the results would be
31) Why should people be interested in you and me, unless we are first
interested in them?
32) We are all interested in what we want; be a little different be interested in what the other person wants and needs (get the other person’s point of view and see things from his angle as well as your own). Be interested in helping others, not only yourself.
33) Try to do things without ulterior motives.
34) If we do things that require time, energy, unselfishness and thoughtfulness,
we will make many friends.
35) The ability to listen is rarer than almost any other trait. (Listen and Learn.)
36) This is an old one - “do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”;
We all know who wrote do unto them.
37) Do unto others as they would have you do unto them.
38) When dealing with people, use little phrases like, “I’m sorry to trouble
you”, “Would you mind”, “Thank you”, they are the hallmark of good
39) Be wiser than other people if you can, but not tell them so.
