Meeting of the Minds:
- Try to have a common understanding irrespective of your differences.
- It’s difficult to put into practice, because it means compromising.
- It’s inevitable that people will have differences, but it’s imperative to endeavour to meet half way.
- You can believe in the antithesis of what other people’s visions are then you can still take on board what drives them and respect that it’s merely a difference of opinion.
- Communicate with humility and express yourself well and realize that it’s imperative to stay grounded.
Be an Open Book:
- Know yourself, don’t have any blind spots; ensure the way in which other people perceive you should be with respect as you remain 100% transparent.
- Make sure it’s easy for other people to understand what your vision is and why you are pursuing your given passion.
- Make it easy for other people to interpret by responding honestly to people’s queries.
- You must be honest, which incorporates being genuine and authentic.
Be Committed to Keeping the Peace:
- Be transparent and trustworthy.
- You should have a good set of values, especially during tough times.
- Maintain peace even during volatile situations where it’s difficult to do so.
- Keep quiet when it’s tough to do so.
- Stay calm and even if it means that you are subdued.
- Be calm and have an inner peace; use the doubters and detractors as motivation and continually stay calm.
It’s Impossible to Control Every Situation Even if you are Right:
- The correct thing to do is to do is to stay authentic, while doing so in an amicable fashion; it doesn’t mean it’s going to be an easy or straightforward thing.
- Not getting the right result can always expose other people’s vulnerabilities, especially when you are right and you have conveyed your point in a calm and subtle manner.
- Always focus on what you can control.
