Ten Commandments of Human Relations

Sunday, January 31, 2010

Ten Commandments of Human Relations

Speak To People — there is nothing so nice as a cheerful word of greeting.

Smile At People — it takes 72 muscles to frown, only 14 to smile.

Call People — the sweetest music to anyone’s ears is the sound of his own name.

Be Friendly and helpful, if you would have friends, be a friend.

Be Cordial — speak and act as if everything you do is a genuine pleasure.

Be Genuinely interested in people — you can like almost everybody if you try.

Be Generous with praise — cautious with criticism.

Be Considerate with the feelings of others — there are usually three sides to a controversy: yours, the other fellow’s, and the right side.

Be Alert to give service — what counts most in life is what we do for others.

Add To This — a good sense of humour, a big dose of patience and a dash of humility, and you will be rewarded many-fold.

    Lovely principles to live by, esp need to remind myself at home : "Be Cordial — speak and act as if everything you do is a genuine pleasure".
    That is for the domestic front!!!
    I try singing as I do my daily house blessing insteadof moaning about housework!

    Thanks. They are great reminders. I am going to print them out and put them on my door! It never hurts to smile or laugh a little more or try to make someone's day a little more special. I know for sure, so many people have made my life a lot better over time. I owe a great debt to the love that exists beyond imagination to give back to the world a little sliver of what has in the past been so gratefully given to me, both when I have been aware of it and when I haven't. And when I chose to look the other way.

    These are all good peacemaker habits to build! I'm also working on keeping the focus on me and not brooding over hurts. This is me getting over it, already! :-)
