How to Build Friendships
By Norman Vincent Peale

Building strong relationships with others will make your life more positive and fulfilling. These 10 steps will help you find and keep lifelong friends.

1. If you genuinely like people, enjoy being with them, talking with them, and being helpful to them, you will find that people generally will like you.

2. Become interested in the other person’s ideas and activities. Direct conversation to the other individual’s interests, rather than talking about yourself.

3. Practice the old saying: “To have friends, be friendly.”

4. Remember names. A person’s name is important to him. Knowing it will help you get along with him.

5. Be an easy-going comfortable sort of person, so that there is no strain in being with you.

6. Be stimulating. If being with you makes people feel better and more alive, you will be sought after; people will want to be with you.

7. Do not rub people the wrong way. Be courteous and affable.

8. Avoid being sensitive, or easily hurt; for people instinctively shy off from the super-sensitive, fearing to arouse an unpleasant reaction.

9. Sincerely attempt to heal every misunderstanding that you have with others.

10. Love people and do things for them. Perform unselfish and outgoing acts of friendship. Such sincere self-giving inevitably leads to pleasant
personal relations. It is all summed up in a familiar Scripture admonition: “Do for others what you want them to do for you.” (See Matthew 7:12; Luke 6:3 1.)

    • Ohhh Thank you so much for this! I truly do try and live this way. I love people...i just find something special in just about everyone i meet, whether it is their smile, their eyes, the travel experiences, the knowledge, their sense of humor or  who they live next door to...whatever. I always try and find something to “connect” with someone to myself and the majority of the time..it works!
      I love this...thank you for sharing this and your very kind words to me earlier! It is nippy here but it is going to be a great day! BIG Football game tonight...My sons team is undefeated and they are playing a huge conference rival who is also undefeated. Tonights game decides 1st seed for the playoffs! Home field advantage is at stake...Keep a good thought please!
      Have a great day!
      Friends,
      Ree
