Be Nice~~~Susie Austin

“The most important single ingredient

in the formula of success

is knowing how

 to get along with people.”


 Theodore Roosevelt




 This is probably one of the best quotes I have read in a long time. It is quite simple however how many people do you know that can’t seem to get along with others, have a chip on their shoulder, or who are angry at life or the world.


In my personal situation I see all of the above on a daily basis and I am  relatively sure to some extent you do as well.  How do you get along with others, do you have any good tricks to share, what is the secret?


I believe the answer is found within us and not the other person. Compassionate people can see through the hurt and anger in others at least to a certain degree. It may help if we can try to understand the outer shell is not the real person but the mask that is covering the actual self underneath. Maybe it is, and maybe it isn’t, however it gives us the permission to handle each situation when they arrive with compassion and caring.  Remember each person you meet every day is different and that is the beauty of life.


If you treat others the way you would like to be treated and do not judge, or make assumptions you will be a happier and content.


It all comes down to this, “be nice.”

  1. Hi Susie,

    Thanks for visiting. You are right about taking the setbacks in the right spirit!

    In fact, what I’ve seen is that those who’ve not experienced failures or setbacks, easily lose heart when they eventually face one! I guess it’s about the pain losing its edge, when experienced again and again!
