Things to Remember in The Area of Human Relationships

The following are some important things to remember in the area of human relationships: Speak to people. There is nothing as nice as a cheerful word of greeting. Smile at people. It takes seventy-two muscles to frown, only fourteen to smile. Call people by name. Music to anyone’s ears is the sound of his/her own name. Be friendly and helpful. Be cordial. Be genuinely interested in people. You can like almost everybody if you try. Be generous with praise, cautious with criticism. Be considerate with the feelings of others. There are usually three sides to a controversy: yours, the other fellow’s, and the right one. Be on the alert to serve. What counts most in life is what we do for others. Add to this a good sense of humor, a big dose of patience, and a dash of humility, and you will be blessed and a blessing to others through your life. (Source unknown).
