Many times, our relation with people appears “too formal”. No matter if you’re at work, at school, at home, over the phone, or the internet:
we tend to do everything without quality and interest, often neglecting the sense to find out what goes on with colleagues and folks. You may smile to show some warmth; but that is all you have to offer. How often do you really take some moments to check out what’s inside other people? How do you see the good in them, and how do you make them comfortable around you?
The truth is that we all have a natural inclination to notice what people are doing wrong, than what they are doing right. So, it’s not surprising when we hear stuffs like- “people will not remember the one thousand things you did right, but will quickly talk about the one thing you did wrong”. It’s obvious we are in always in a hurry to conclude on the personality of people with the slightest provocation.
This is even worse when you feel surrounded by mostly people with less than good qualities. Such manner of life will make you feel less secure, less happy and make you have a hard time trusting people.
If you really want to live a happy and fulfilled life, then you’ve got to learn to see the good in others. Stop bouncing off every time there’s company, especially when the person involved expects more from you. Make it a habit to appreciate the good in the world. This will not only grant you freedom but also make you more productive.
Now, you ask-how can I do that?
Instead of bumping out on everyone, why not take a little time to find out what is going on with them. Become curious and know what the other person is feeling.
Always think positively of others. Try to see good intentions in them. No one is your enemy until they are your friends.
Recognize a special ability when you come across one. Try to give some encouragement when you get the chance. You never can tell, the next biggest brand might be standing next to you.
Finally, recognize that the good you see in others is also in you. This is the only way you can truly see the good in the world. Always maintain a positive spirit no matter how your circumstance doesn’t suggest it.
