Do You Know These 8 Core Truths About People

By Ange Fonce

Doing well in any walk of life... comes down to "understanding people"... your employees... co-workers,customers... and lovers. 

Know these "truths" and you are off to a good start in building "connections" with others.

Understanding people... including yourself... and ALL those you have in your life is the core of all "success" you enjoy in life. 

With that in mind... here are 8 truths to inform and illuminate your life strategies...

1... Most people mean well.... 

While there are probably some truly evil people in the world... most people have their hearts in the right place.  

They honestly think they are trying to do the best they can with the resources they have got.

Therefore... assume good intentions... and others will be drawn to you and want to work for you.

2... People think in stories... 

Ever since first humans sat around the first campfire... they have been enthralled by stories because stories give meaning to events and facts that otherwise would seem random.

So weave "facts" into a "narrative" in order to "attract" and hold the "attention" of others.

3... People decide emotionally then justify intellectually... 

Very few people make "decisions" by first "assessing the facts" and then coming to a "decision."  

Most people decide from the gut and then find "reasons" why that was a good decision.

So when you are "seeking a decision"... only present "facts" that will elicit an "emotional reaction" which then holds up to scrutiny.

4... People need to be heard... 

Being "unable to speak"... or to "speak" and have nobody "listen"... is the very definition of "powerlessness."  

If you do not "listen"... the "relationship" is dead. 

And if you muzzle somebody... they will detest you forever.

So you must fairly "hear" others out and you must "listen" more than you "talk."

5... People crave strong relationships... 

With the exception of a few truly crazy people... what everybody wants more than anything else is to have a "deep" and "lasting connection" with other human beings.

And every wildly "successful relationship" ultimately has brought people closer together in some way.

6... People avoid pain first and only then seek pleasure...  

The "human brain" is hardwired to survive... which in prehistoric times meant staying as far away from "pain" as possible. 

Only when secure from "pain" do people ponder what will make them "happy."

And in "relationship situations"... a "reduce your risks" message usually trumps a "grow your life" message.

7.... People have not changed much... 

Technology changes at a great pace... yet the vast majority of people change slowly.

Each generation insist that their generation is new and different. 

New, yes... yet different... not so much. 

Think about it... are the young people of today saying anything much "different" to when you was young?

Every claim made about today was once said by previous generations.

So value both the "enthusiasm of youth" and the "experience of age"... because both are "stronger" and more "useful" when "combined."

8... People want to leave a legacy... 

Whether it is a "successful" business... a book of wisdom... or even just your children... everybody wants the slice of immortality that comes from "truly making a difference."

Now "think" hard how you "invest" the hours of your day... because you are creating that legacy... "here" and "now."

Thank you and may you enjoy a Prosperous and Dynamic day!
