They don’t care how much you know till they know how much you care about them. Show it so they know it. They’ll help you grow it.
You can never go wrong commending someone for what they did right: ‘Well done!’
‘Why not?’ questions expose weak excuses that hold you back. Why not YOU? Why not ME? Why not US? Why not NOW? Why not go for it?
You can fail by NOT doing anything but you can’t succeed with that strategy. What would be good to do? Begin.
The Two Rules for Creating GOOD First Impressions: 1. Be kind. 2. See rule #1.
‘You may be right’ is good. ‘I was wrong’ is good. ‘I can do better’ is good. Say and mean all three and it’s ALL good.
The worst day to do better? Tomorrow. The best day? Today. The best day for doubt? Tomorrow. The best day for hope? Today.
1-problem divided by 2-problem-solvers = Problem solved in half the time. If one of the 2 IS the problem, ‘Hello, long division!’
The Comeback Formula: Get up. Get the lesson. Get on to the JOY of Success with what you learned. You’re BACK. Even BETTER. YAY.
How to encourage personal growth in others: Stop the criticisms. Start the compliments. Start and stop frequently.
‘Heart to heart’ beats ‘head to head.’ No headache. No heartache. Just things to celebrate.
A word of encouragement and a shower of praise are the keys to Productive and Happy Days.
