Besides having an abundance of friends, it will also help you to be tolerant. Life is a compromise, and to accept it as it is adds to your own peace of mind and enjoyment. People are entitled to their opinion. Tolerance is respecting that opinion without believing or sharing it.
Respect for another’s point of view will always enlarge your own. As Voltaire said, ” I do not agree with a word you say but I shall defend to the death your right to say it. ”
Tolerance is getting rid of prejudice and hatred. It’s trying to establish the true relationship between situations on an impersonal basis. It’s a good quality to practice and it pays big dividends.
Tolerance will also help you get rid of your vanity. The world was here when you came along. It will be here when you’re gone. You cannot change it. You cannot reform it. In fact, you can’t change anything but your attitude towards it.
Adjust yourself to the world as you find it. Start each day of selling with a spirit of sportsmanship and competition. Train yourself to enjoy it and things will come your way.
Aside from using tolerance as a means to develop your charm, it will pay you to exercise your sense of humor. Train yourself to laugh. Don’t take things or people too seriously and by no means, yourself. You ain’t all that. I’m twice as good as you, at least, and even I ain’t all that.
Laugh at life’s irritations and they lose their ” bite “. If the prospect is uncivil, give it no thought. ” No big ting, brudda “, as they say in the islands… Hawaiian, that is.
Don’t even consider it. Laugh it off. After all, it’s not a man’s action that trouble you, it is the thought and consideration that you give him. Give ‘em no weight and they’re easier to pack.
Maintain your sense of humor. This keeps you relaxed, and this means peace of mind and efficiency.
