Every day we encounter challenging situations which test our resolve. How we choose to handle these situations are extremely important. The outcome is not necessarily whether we are successful or not. Many people watch our actions and reactions. True success is arriving at the right outcome and in the right manner. If this can be accomplished than everyone wins. Read on…

Real peace comes from the inside. Let it freely flow out from you.

The more peace you offer, the more you will have. Take the time to understand, and you will in turn be better understood.

Improve your interactions with the people around you by raising your expectations of them, as well as yourself. Respect the diverse opinions and perspectives of others, and you will gain their respect as well.

Keep confrontation as your very last resort rather than your first approach. Set the tone by being respectful and pleasant, and you'll find yourself getting much more accomplished.

Just because people disagree with you does not make them your enemies. Take the time to listen, and you might even learn something of real value from them.

There is infinitely more to be gained through cooperation than through confrontation. Make yourself a real winner by bringing out the winning qualities in those around you.

With such an approach, everyone can win.

Isn't that what we all want to happen? Think about it.

This made a lot of sense to me. Jim's comment "make yourself a real winner by bringing out the winning qualities in those around you" is real good advice. Helping people succeed is rewarding but helps you as well. Appreciate the helpful words. Lou

What comes to my mind is thinking positive. Taking every challenge and approaching the solution with positive thinking. Do not let negativity through your filtering mechanism. Jim, appreciate the time you took to share your thoughts with us. Art
