“Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.” – Philippians 2:4 (NLT)
Everyone wants to make it big. But we should not forget to carry people along. You need people on your way to success and how you relate to them will come back to you. What you give out comes back, be it hand shakes, smile, politeness and likeability, even anger and bitterness! They all come back! Improve on your people relationship.
You do this by:
(1) Getting out of yourself! There is a world out there outside yourself. Think and talk less of yourself. Outdoor has a lot of fascinations; you can love and know about outdoor life, yet be an inside person who still makes time for family.
(2) Take interest, genuine interest in people. Not just for what you can get from them. Remember names, birthdays, etc. Be courteous; thank people for gift or help rendered, congratulate others on their achievement, rejoice with those who rejoice.
(3) Learn to tolerate or endure people knowing that everyone will not be like you!
(4) Be ready to sacrifice for people. Remembering that what you give is what you’ll get. Never be tired of doing good. On this however, I add, mark those who are not serious, who take generosity for granted and stay away!
