Make others like themselves a little better and they’ll like you very much.

Make others like themselves a little better and they’ll like you very much.

How do you build your relationships with others? 

Are you continuously looking for genuine opportunities to deepen your friendships in unique and compelling ways? 

Learning the dynamics of human relationships could not be more important to your overall success in life… on every front. When you understand how and why people feel the way they do or react the way they do, you are infinitely closer to enabling yourself to honestly leverage this information to make both your life, as well as theirs, more enriched overall. 

We are continuously looking for new opportunities to grow our relationships and expand our horizons. These opportunities are not always readily apparent. In fact, in some cases they would not exist at all, if someone had not found the secret key to unlocking the healthy relationship dynamic that breeds friendship and long-term loyalty. 

Think about circumstances in which you and one of your closest friends might never have met, had it not been for any one of myriad variables transpiring. 

When we reflect back on those circumstances, we are left pondering how much of our lives might have changed if it were not for one significant moment which facilitated the deep friendship taking place… and which ultimately gave way to new and more opportune horizons as a direct result. 

We are continuously building our repertoire with others, which enables us to mature as individuals, and collectively build a foundation upon which we can all thrive in the process. 

These are not happenstance, but rather a series of human dynamics, which engage and collectively trigger opportunities that might prove highly beneficial when all parties are in alignment. 

Understanding the art of communicating with someone else and allowing them to see how appreciative you are of some of their most favorable qualities is imperative to growing and deepening a friendship. 

When you are fully aware of how this might work, you are wise to build upon these opportunities by strengthening the dynamic between you and others using this simple formula. 

If you are disingenuous with your methodology, the entire effort will fall flat. But if you are speaking from the heart, and you are empowering others to discover what you feel is so magical about them, they will unquestionably feel your connectivity and respond accordingly. 

Happy Friday!

When I was 5 years old, I discovered that the lemon tree in the backyard + dixie cups + water and sugar and I was in business. I have been hooked on that ever since. In 1979, I borrowed $14,000 to create a brand new product... photographic greeting cards with no text on the inside, called Paradise Photography. That was the start of The Illusion Factory. Since then, The Illusion Factory has been entrusted by all of the major studios and broadcasters with the advertising and marketing of over $7 billion in filmed, live, broadcast, gaming, AR, VR and regulated gaming forms of entertainment, generating more than $100 Billion in revenue and 265 awards for creativity and technology for our clients. When I took a break from film school at UCLA to move to Hawaii, my mother did not lecture me. Instead, she took 150 of her favorite aphorisms and in her beautiful calligraphy, wrote them artistically throughout a blank journal. That is the origin of the Lessons from the Mountain series. Since then, on my journeys to the top of a mountain to watch the sunrise, I have spent countless hours contemplating words of wisdom from the sages of all races, genders and political persuasions, constantly accumulating the thoughts to guide me on my life path. I hope you enjoy my books. Please let me know your thoughts, as I highly value your feedback!
