10 Guidelines for Dealing With People

Norman Vincent Peale
These 10 Guidelines for Dealing with People are as true today as the day they were written by Norman Vincent Peale. I’m taking them to heart. Any one of them would make a great New Year’s resolution.

To learn more about Norman Vincent Peale’s philosophy, read his book The Power of Positive Thinking

  1. Learn to remember names.  A person’s name is very important to him or her.
  2. Be a comfortable person so there is not strain in being around you.
  3. Learn to be easygoing so things won’t bother you.
  4. Don’t be egotistical; don’t give the impression that you know it all.
  5. Learn to be interesting so people will want to be with you and get something stimulating from you.
  6. Get the “scratchy” elements out of your personality.
  7. Drain off your grievances.  Honestly try to heal every misunderstanding you have.
  8. Work at liking people until you learn to do so naturally.  Sure, everyone has faults; overlook them.
  9. Never miss a chance to say “congratulations” or to give support at a difficult time.
  10. Delelop a spiritual depth in yourself so you have something to pass on to the people you know.  Learn how to share this strength with others.
