Lou Ludwig Success Tips: As You Treat Others . . . . They Will Treat You

As You Treat Others . . . . They Will Treat You

As You Treat Others  . . . . They Will Treat You

The people who are lifting the world onward are

those who encourage more than they criticize.”

Elizabeth Harrison 1849 – 1927, American Educator




As I see it. . . . . . . .

As you treat others . . . . they will treat you


The people that make the most of their lives have a simple . . . . and yet very effective psychology . . . . never criticize . . . . condemn . . . . or complain.  The people who practice this psychology live their life . . . . in a positive world of . . . . self-expectations for themselves. They will make it a practice . . . . to treat the people that they meet with a sense of encouragement.


As you think you become . . . . as you treat others they will treat you.


When you live in a world of positive self-expectations . . . .


You’re find yourself living . . . . a positive and productive life. How you live your life will influence . . . . your relationships . . . . and the people that you interact with. You also will find that the overwhelming majority of the people will reciprocate . . . . and treat you in the same manner . . . . as they are being treated.


Words to live your life by are . . . . to never criticize . . . . condemn . . . . or complain. With that psychology you will find that you will become a person of influence . . . . and you will stand out in your life . . . . and in your profession.


As you treat others . . . . they will treat you . . . .  as your treat others will determine if you establish a business relationship with them . . . . and if they will do business with you.

Good Morning Lou Ludwig,  I agree with the way we treat someone is the way they will treat of back most times but not all the time.  Some people take advantage of us.

These are words that I have always lived by and if we can't treat others well, how can we expect to be treated well.

Good morning, Lou -- it's the Golden Rule.  Once again -- the basics matter.  A lot.

We practice the Platinum Rule:  We 'treat others as they wish to be treated'.  This is a fine tuned point; and, we find that by notching it up, it pays back in spades.

Lou, I agree with you! If we all focus on treating others with kindness, we will reap the same in our lives.

Even if you get the same treatment back it's OK. Not everyone is on the same page.

Hi Lou Ludwig - As I was reading your post "the Golden Rule" hit my thoughts. So I have to agree with Michael Jacobs .  "do unto others as you would have them do unto you". ...simply put Karma.

Hi Lou... the golden rule trumps all! And even if someone doesn't treat you back the same way, as far as I'm concerned, it's no worries. Karma will pay you back in another, probably unexpected way.
