Mr. Dale Carnegie

Dale Carnegie was an interesting man. Mainly because he knew how to be genuinly intrested in his audience. He had famous conversations, wrote intelligent books, and researched some of the most interesting subjects we still talk about today. His success rode on the fact that he knew how to handle people, in good and bad situations. He validated his own points as much as he did his peers. And he started with theirs before he acknowledged his own. Unselfish acts shine the brightest.

There’s a lot I feel that I can learn from a man who passed away years ago. May he rest in peace ✌

Acknowledgment and respect of other people’s ‘wants’ is essential in communicating your own. To get what you want you have to learn how to give others what they want. It’s a fair trade.

And stop criticizing others. If you don’t learn now you might find out the hard way. Sort of like Abraham Lincoln who came close to battling in a duel until he learned that lesson. “Praise the slightest improvement and praise every improvement.” Because if you don’t people won’t recognize the point you’re trying to make. People will try to prove themselves like you or I would. Complaints are unnecessary noise. Praise the good and be the good you want to see in the world.

“Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all.”

This is true. It’s so important to believe in yourself, it’s hardest when no one does. But what matters is your approach and that is most important and possible!

“Your desire to change must be greater than your desire to stay the same.”
