Here’s a simple method to get the most out of others (and ultimately yourself)

Have you ever had a boss, a friend, or a co-worker that you would do anything for? Or maybe you were lucky enough to be the boss or coach who had people in charge who would do just about anything you asked of them.

In any case, there is a high probability that the reason people are willing to go to the wall for you, or you are willing to do it for them, is a direct result of how they were treated. There are usually three things people do that make you go the extra mile for them:

1) They make you feel cared for.

2) They make you feel appreciated.

3) They make you feel respected.

In the absence of these three things, you will never get as much as you could from any relationship you have with people.

As simple as these three are to do (or list here), I have found their practice to be seriously lacking in almost every area of ‚Äč‚Äčlife that I have been privy to. Imagine how much better all areas of your life would be if everyone practiced these three simple things.

Some might say “But not everyone is serving out of respect, appreciation and caring.” I tend to agree, but my answer would be that you have to give those things to get them. Perhaps part of the problem is that many people hold onto these things until they get them first.

I’ve found that if I go out of my way to believe people (in some cases, when there’s no apparent reason to), more often than not, they’ll eventually agree with me. I have worked with many people who advised me not to get involved with, who have become some of my hardest working, nicest and most productive clients.

That said, doing these three things is no guarantee of success. It’s a two-way street, and I’ve had clients who have taken my faith in them and my hard work for granted, causing those relationships to end prematurely.

Although it doesn’t guarantee success, practicing these three things dramatically increases your chances of success. Most people have been in relationships where they felt unappreciated, therefore they lost their enthusiasm and ended up just going through the motions. No one, to my knowledge, has ever performed at their peak while just going through the motions.

Therefore, I highly recommend that you practice these three things in all of your relationships if you want to give them the best chance of being as successful as possible.
