Get Along Better With Everyone


Below are some of the beautiful words of wisdom on how to cultivate better relationships with your family, friends, colleagues...

*******

Before you say anything to anyone, ask yourself 3 things:
1.  Is it true?    
2.  Is it kind?    
3.  Is it necessary?

*******

Make promises sparingly and keep them faithfully.

*******

Never miss the opportunity to compliment or say something encouraging 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 what he is saying; if so, make changes. 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.

*******

Please share them to your friends... Everyone needs them.

I like this. I would add to focus on others. Ask what can I do to help someone else. Be a little kinder to others and look for ways to make someone's day. I'm really trying to do this more in my life.

Sometimes what's true and necessary isn't kind; but must be done anyway.
