In his book, The Power of Positive Thinking, Norman Vincent Peale lists some rules for becoming the kind of person whom others enjoy being around. Here are some of them:

1) Learn to remember names. I believe this goes a long way with people.

2) Acquire the quality of relaxed, easy-goingness so that things don’t irritate you quite so easily.

3) Don’t be egotistical. Guard against giving the impression that you know it all. Be humble.

4) Sincerely attempt to heal, on an honest Christian basis, every misunderstanding you have had and now have. Drain off your grievances.

5) Practice liking people. In order to do this we will probably need to work on patience and pride.

6) Never miss an opportunity to say a word of encouragement upon anyone’s achievement, or express sympathy in sorrow or disappointment.
