Recognising Others

It is often said that being recognized is the deepest craving of human nature. Not only we are who we think we are but we are also a function of what people think we are. It is important that we treat ourselves well. It is equally important that we treat others just as well. After all, we are all fighting the same war.

Here are 10 ways to make others feel important.

1. Give sincere praise. Always be on alert for opportunities to compliment or commend another.

2. Show enthusiasm. Always be enthusiastic when dealing with others.

3. Be supportive. Show your interest in what others are pursuing and encourage them.

4. Be attentive. Find out if others are in need of help.

5. Be appreciative.

6. Be approving.

7. Show affection. Let others know that you care.

8. Be accepting. Don't be judge others. Let them be themselves.

9. Be affirming. Positive affirmative statements does wonders to the human mind.

10. Be a friend. Emerson once said, "To have a friend, you must first be a friend."
