" Knowing How To Win Friends, Is Better Than Knowing How To Fight Enemies" by fcbgotel(m): 11:09am On Jul 21, 2021

( Comrade Ehomanyin Godswill)

Most people don’t criticize themselves for anything, no matter how wrong it may be.The average person is more interested in his or her own name than in all the other names on earth put together.

In the words of Henry Ford;

“If there is any one secret of success/friendship, it lies in the ability to get the other person’s point of view and see things from that person’s angle as well as from your own".

This does not mean manipulating someone so that he will do something that is only for your benefit and his detriment. Each party should gain from the negotiation.

If you only try to impress people and get them interested in you, you won’t have many "true friends". True friends are not made that way.

If you want to make friends, put yourself out to do things for other people – things that require time, energy, unselfishness, and thoughtfulness. Learn to ways stand by what is right no matter who is involved and ensure you avoid hypocritical approach on issues.

"Wrong is wrong no matter who does it, Right is right know matter who is doing" we shouldn't allow sentiments steal away our sense of reasoning.

I am interested in others, when they are interested in me. This is not pride it's "Self respect" . If you are the type that always make your self available for people, believing that they would love you and always speak good of you, that means you are far from the truth. show of interest, as with every other principle of human relations, must be sincere. It must pay off not only for the person showing the interest but for the person receiving the attention. It is a two-way street – both parties benefit.

If we must keep friends, Make the other person feel important and do it sincerely.
There is one all-important law of human conduct: "always make the other person feel important".

If we obey this law, we shall almost never get into trouble. In fact, that law, if obeyed, will bring us countless friends and constant happiness. But the very instant we break the law, we shall get into endless trouble.

Give to others what we would have others give to us. How? When? Where? The answer is "All the time"and "everywhere"

As Galileo said;

“You cannot teach a man anything; you can only help him to find it within himself.” There is a certain degree of satisfaction in having the courage to admit your errors. It not only clears the air of guilt and defensiveness but often helps solve the problem created by the mistake.

Our egotistical nature may prevent us from admitting our mistakes publicly, but we need to drop that and forcus on building better future for ourselves .

Let's when speaking about your "perceived enemy" to others, speak well of them. What you say about others behind their backs will eventually get to them sooner or later .When you respect them in this way, they will want to return the favour.

Try and win a friend today.
