There is nothing else that so kills the ambitions of a person as criticisms from superiors. I never criticize anyone. I believe in giving a person incentive to work. So I am anxious to praise but loath to find fault. If I like anything, I am hearty in my approbation and lavish in my praise.

Some suggestions for you :

Tomorrow you may want to persuade somebody to do something. Before you speak, pause and ask yourself: How can I make this person want to do it?

That's why encouragement is a much more effective teaching device than punishment.

Throw yourself into some work you believe in with all your heart, live for it, die for it, and you will find the happiness that you had thought could never be yours.

Emerson said: Every man I meet is my superior in some way. In that, I learn of him.

Become genuinely interested in other people.

By criticizing, we do not make lasting changes and often incur resentment.

Men of age object too much, consult too long, adventure too little, repent too soon, and seldom drive business home to the full period, but content themselves with a mediocrity of success.

Try honestly to see things from the other person's point of view.

Taft said: I don't see how I could have done any differently.

Is listening a matter of waiting for the other person to stop so that you can start talking, or is it a skill that you genuinely want to develop? It's amazing how rare good listeners are, and by becoming one of those rare people, you can take a big step toward making yourself truly unforgettable.

Relaxation and Recreation The most relaxing recreating forces are a healthy religion, sleep, music, and laughter. Have faith in God—learn to sleep well— Love good music—see the funny side of life— And health and happiness will be yours.

We cannot be pepped up and enthusiastic about doing something exciting and feel dragged down by worry at the very same time. One kind of emotion drives out the other.

Your smile is a messenger of your good will.

There is no such thing as a neutral exchange. You leave someone either a little better or a little worse.
