Change Yourself First

Have you ever noticed it is easier to change yourself than to change everyone else? What do we learn from this? In relationships and communication work on yourself first. People behave rationally from their own point of view. Don't ask what they can do for you, ask what you can do for them. Try to understand before you try to make yourself understood. Adapt to their style of communication. Probe for greater clarity and understanding. You change first!
