I love the story of a man who had dealings with two British prime ministers, William Gladstone and Benjamin Disraeli. He said of Gladstone, “Whenever I came away from a conversation with him I was left with the feeling of how brilliant he was.” He said of Disraeli, “Whenever I came away from a conversation with Disraeli I was left with the feeling of how brilliant I was.”
Disraeli probably earned the right then to quip:
"The greatest good you can do for another is not just to share your riches, but to reveal to him his own.”
How can you bring out the best in other people today?
When you enter a room, don't have as your underlying script, "Here I am!" but rather "There you are!"
