How to REALLY Win Friends and Influence People!

The best way to change others' behavior
is to change your reactions to them.
Dale Carnegie's book, How to Win Friends and Influence People, has sold millions of copies since it was originally published in 1936. The company which he founded lives on, and is still churning out graduates, and the book continues to sell well on Amazon. His most important teaching is dramatically illustrated in the following YouTube video, which demonstrates how it is possible to change other people's behavior by changing your own reactions to them.

Everyone wants validation -- hearty approval, of the kind demonstrated here. No, I am not suggesting flattery. Flattery is from the teeth out, and it should and ought to fail. But when you see a chance to let somebody know that they really are awesome, and tell them so, in such a way that they can accept what you say and believe it themselves, watch what it does to your own approval in their eyes!




Then, once you have got this simple trick down pat, you will be ready to listen to the full text of Mr. Carnegie's  book, which is presented below, and go back to it once in a while for a refresher course.

Good listening!
