Whatever happened to civil discourse

Whatever happened to civil discourse

We live in a world where civil discourse is not highly valued. People just do not seem to be able to talk to each other and work together. It makes me wonder what Franklin would think of our country today. Because from my perspective, things are spiraling out of control. We reach new depths daily. We cannot have leaders and public figures whose primary form of communication is yelling insults at each other and expect to have any civility at any level of our society. What can you do? Decide today that you can make a difference. Be courteous. Be honest. Be sincere. Live a life worth living.

Build relationships to become successful

Building relationships

Building relationships is a crucial part of becoming a successful individual. In fact, one big reason that so many do not achieve the success that they desire is their lack of good people skills. Remember, the ability to get along with other people and relate to them is vital to your success. If you are not a good listener, if you lack empathy with others, if you cannot take positive criticism, then you have some work to do. A lot of work. Because you cannot fake it until you make it. You must be genuine if other people are going to want to do business with you.
