Getting Along Better
Proven ways to get along better with everyone.
Before you say anything to anyone, ask yourself 3 things:
Is it true?
Is it Kind?
Is it necessary?
Make promises sparingly and keep them faithfully
Never miss the opportunity to compliment our say something encourging to someone.
Refuse to talk negatively about others, don’t gossip and don’t listen to gossip.
Have a forgiving view of people. Believe that most people are doing the best they can.
Keep an open mind; discuss, but don’t argue. It is possible to disagree without being disagreeable.
Forget about counting to 10. Count to 1,000 before doing or saying anything that could make matters worse.
Let your virtues speak for themselves.
If someone criticizes you, see if there is any truth to the criticism. If there is no truth to the criticism, ignore it and live so that no one will believe the negative remark.
Cultivate your sense of humor; laughter is the shortest distance between two people.
Do not seek so much to be consoled, as to console; do not seek so much to be understood, as to understand; do not seek so much to be loved as to love
January 17th - Proven ways are the best
Truth is what stands the test of experience.
I like the tried and true ways of life. The proven ways of making life better and easier, but every now and then we have to find out things for ourself. They say we all have to learn lessons in life. Some are easier, some are harder, but if I know something that is proven to be true, I’ll go with it.
There are many truths of which the full meaning cannot be realized until personal experience had brought it home.
John Stuart Mill
Tested and proved is to be worthy or good. They are recognized as reliable and are found to be successful. One thing that has been proven is that to be happier in life we should stay in touch with friends and family . Money cannot buy happiness.
Another is to spend time in the fresh air. It will boost positive thinking and improve memory too. It has also been proven that Smiling will make you feel better. A smile is also a good way to reduce some of the pain we have in troubling circumstances.
Men occasional stumble on the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing had happened.
Sir Winston Churchill
