Thinking Creatively about Human Relations
All of us want two things out of life — Success and Happiness. Right?
And, your idea of success may be different from mine. Yet, there is one big factor which all of must learn to deal with if you want to be successful and happy. The one common denominator to all success and happiness is other people.
Various sizes studies have proven that if you learn how to deal with other people, you will have gone 85% of the way down the road to success in any business, occupation, or profession, and about 99% of the way to personal happiness.
Merely getting along isn’t the answer. What counts is the way to deal with people that will bring us personal satisfaction and, at the same time, not trample on other’s egos.
Human Relations is the science of dealing with people in such a way that your ego and their egos remain intact. And this is the only method of getting along with people that ever results in any real success or satisfaction.
The reason 90% of people fail in life is a failure to deal successfully with people.
Look around you. Are the most successful people those with the most brains, the most skill?
Are the people who are the happiest and get the most fun out of life so much smarter than the other people you know?
If you stop and think about it, the chances are you will say that the people you know who are the most successful, and enjoy life the most, are those who have a way with people.
