Most times our friendship with others don’t last long , sometimes it may not be our fault but most times it is our response and our attitude towards them and remember that what you do to others is what they will do to you and how you treat people is how they will also treat you so you need to watch your attitude as regards to the way you treat the people you meet every day because Your joy this year is tied to the peace of others.Digest these ten reminders of how to get along with others.
- Keep chains on your tongue; always say less than you think. How you say it often counts more than you think. How you say it often counts more than what you say.
- Make promises sparingly and keep them faithfully, no matter what it costs you.
- Never let an opportunity pass to say a kind and encouraging thing to or about somebody. Appreciate a job well done. If criticism is needed, criticize helpfully in love and never spitefully.
- Be interested in others; interested in their pursuits, their welfare, their homes and their families. Make merry with those who rejoice; with those who weep or mourn.
- Be cheerful and smile often: scientists say that humans are programmed to mirror the facial expressions of others they encounter, so your smile is contagious. Make a habit of smiling. (The scripture says, in God’s presence is fullness of joy” Psalm 16:1). Smile and you will have more energy, improve your mood and get well more quickly. But if you wear a long face and you are sad and depressed, your body will feel tired and run-down. When you lack Joy, you are disconnected from God’s presence. When you are sad and frustrated and wear a chip on your shoulder, you’ve detached yourself from favour, blessings, healing and promotion. Your happiness supply line has been disconnected. You have Joy deep within you, but sometimes you must push it up higher where we can all see it and share it. Studies have shown that people who smile frequently are promoted more often and end up with higher-paying jobs. Why is that? Don’t you prefer being with those who are happy, good natured, and friendly? Of course we all do!
- Preserve an open mind on all debatable questions. Discuss, but don’t argue. It is a mark of Superior minds to disagree and yet be friendly.
- Let your virtues, speak for themselves and refuse to talk of another’s vices (weakness). Discourage gossip.
- Be careful of another’s feelings. Wit and humour at the others fellows expense is rarely worth the effort, and may hurt where least expected.
- Pay no attention to ill-natured remarks about you. Simply live so that nobody will believe them.
- Don’t be too anxious about your dues. Do your work, be patient and keep your disposition sweet, forget self, and you will be rewarded by the rewarder of all genuine labour- God.
Have a great day and don’t forget to share
