This 23-word sentence reveals the secret to winning with people
“When you meet someone, treat them as if they were in serious trouble: … and you will be right more than half the time.” — Henry Eyring
This idea really hits home with me. We get so caught up in our lives trying to complete one task after another that sometimes we forget that we are all connected and that we each have our own struggles. What if you genuinely asked someone how they really were, and they were able to open up to you? What if this created a deeper bond between you and allowed the other person to heal? Adding the human element of compassion for one another into your daily life and interactions could save or change someone's life. Allow others to be heard and you will be in turn rewarded.
Go ahead and give living compassionately a try. I would love to hear how your experiences!
