My Sentiments Are The Same


I do a quarterly V.I.P. Newsletter for my clients. Page 1 always has inspiring quotes. I want to share the latest ones with friends of General Pettygree.
Respectfully,
Bill P.

“Act enthusiastic and you will be enthusiastic.” 
Dale Carnegie

My father taught me this one five decades ago when he took a Dale Carnegie course for work.
I learned Dad and Carnegie are 100% right.

Your view of yourself will … influence how others perceive you. If you are a confident, cheerful, positive person, your co-workers, friends and family will be attracted to your personality. If you are unhappy, negative, and always complaining about your situation, others will be repelled. Even when … you don’t feel very happy, by forcing yourself to behave in a positive fashion, you will find that you soon feel genuinely upbeat, because your subconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between an artificial emotion and the real thing. When you behave positively, you will positively influence everyone around you — including yourself.” Mike Stromsoe

Friendship needs frequent expression to remain alive.

We are all human, with frailties, foibles, and insecurities. We each need to be appreciated for the uniqueness that makes us individual, and we need to be told that we are appreciated. Maintaining friendships requires effort and persistent expression, both in word and deed. Tell your friends often how much you appreciate them. Remember occasions that are important to them. Congratulate them upon their achievements. Most important of all, let them know that you are there for them whenever they need you.

Great stuff, Bill. I will purloin those shamelessly for memes!

I agree with you about the Dale Carnegie point. I rather like these. It might be no harm to make it a regular feature.
