I guess we’ve all heard the expression ‘Give & ye shall receive’; it’s a pretty lofty statement and we know what it means, but how does it relate to everyday life in 2011? Here are a few thoughts, inspired by many other peoples writings, and some of my own.
If you want to be understood, try to understand.
If you want help, be a help.
If you want respect, give respect.
If you want your boss to appreciate you, appreciate your boss.
If you want to be ignored, ignore everyone else.
If you want respect from your co-workers, give them respect.
If you want your staff to work hard for you, work hard for them.
If you want to change someones mood, think about changing yours.
If you want to receive praise, give praise.
To see a smile, give a smile.
If you want love, give love.
I hope we can all receive what we want in 2011 :)
