Super Quotes #15 — Dealing with people, controlling your emotions, and life is short!
Dealing with people (Dale Carnegie), controlling your emotions (Epictetus), and life is short (Mark Twain)!
“When dealing with people, remember that you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but with creatures of emotions.“
— Dale Carnegie
All human beings have emotions built into their decisions. You could have the best hard skills in the world. But if you’re the mean person at work, school, or online, people aren’t going to interact with you.
When dealing with people, remember that they are emotional creatures.
Give them a genuine compliment when you walk in the door; it’s easy and takes a few seconds
Truly pay attention to what they say during your conversations
Give them praise when they try hard and empathy when they slip up
Always be mindful of people’s emotions as that’s what they’re ultimately driven by.
“Any person capable of angering you becomes your master.“
If a person can trigger your anger, it means that they can control your emotions. And if they can control your emotions, they can control you to a great degree.
Ultimately, you are the one deciding to be angry, sad, happy, or joyful. To maintain control of your mind, and life, you must learn to detach people’s words from your emotions and sense of self.
“Life is short, break the rules. Forgive quickly, kiss slowly. Love truly. Laugh uncontrollably and never regret anything that makes you smile.“
— Mark Twain
If you want to live life well, then you should do it how you want to do it.
Do what you love for work
Try new things that excite you
Make crazy-fun memories
Forget about anger and regret
Learn from your mistakes, but move on from them
Life is too short to not act freely. Hold on and ride how you want!
