Point of View (POV)

Posted by Ed - 13/01/09 at 03:01 pm

Our first success principle is looking at things from the other person’s point of view. I think it is one of the most important of the success principles because it forces you to be considerate of others.  You have heard it before ‘Walk a mile in another person’s  shoes’ or even Matt 7:12 “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do unto you…”

The Bible verse sums it up.  When followed both people then have the same point of view and respect each other. It has been called the Golden Rule. When I was reading the life of Dale Carnegie and the life Napoleon Hill, it was an era after the Great Depression and as I recall there was a magazine called the Golden Rule Club that was very popular and motivational.

I would appreciate it if those with more knowledge about this would blog a comment; specifically if you have first hand or near first hand information about the Golden Rule and how it affected that part of our country’s history?  What helped them then could help us now.

    In the United States one example of this principles was how the the found fathers looked at government from a citizens point of view. Although the colonists wanted a “king” originally George Washington insisted on a leader with a predetermined number of years in office so that Americans could be better represented.
