Dale Carnegie’s masterpiece “How To Win Friends And Influence People” highlights some very simple but resonating lessons which can implied in our daily life whether it be a business world or personal world.
I came up with this book back in 2017 and still refer to it when I need it the most. Some of the lessons I learned form it are:
- Avoid Arguments
- Never tell other people, “You’re wrong”.
- If you are wrong, Admit it.
- Let other people do most of the talking.
- Let the other person have ownership of the idea.
- Try to see from other’s point of view. (A magical formula)
- Be sympathetic to other people ideas and desires.
- Criticize if you can help. “He has the right to criticize who has the heart to help.”
- Smile is the best ornament you can wear. It is the messenger of goodwill.
- A person’s name is sweetest and the most important sound in any language to him/her. So, remember a person’s name.
- Be a good listener. “A person’s toothache means more to that person than a famine in China that kills million people.”
- Talk in relation to other people’s interest.
