Developing Your Friendliness

Friendship by jakerome

The man or woman with a friendly personality always has an advantage over the person with a dead-pan poker face and an indifferent attitude. In social life, in public life, or in modern business, it is significant that friendliness pays the biggest dividends. No matter what service you need, no matter what your goal in life, isn't it true that you always lean toward the individual with the smiling, friendly personality?

Friendliness leads to friendship, and friendship is the number one success factor in life. How many real friends have you? Can you count them on the fingers of one hand, or both hands? If you can equal that number, or go beyond it, you are fortunate indeed. Many people mistake acquaintances for real friends. While acquaintances are picked up here and true friendships are developed over the years.

for me - real friend, is one who would never judge a person no matter what she does, instead understand her and accept that she has her own reason why she does...it is so rare to find one...

thanks for visiting my blog :)

True friends are those who will brave enough to tell how bad or good my actions are.

true, true friendships are developed in time, but does not mean we can't extend friendliness even to acquaintances, since you are so right, we need this kind of attitude to just bring in warmth, openness, lightness in our workplace, it is very tough to be working with someone whose face seem to be always angry at the world.

Friendly people are like magnets, they can attract even the "impossible-to-deal" with people.

Yep, extrovert personality is a big plus in life. I'm just happy to have few friends that I can count on.

very true! i think i can count my friends with both hands as i really choose my friends well and treasure for life those who are real

I love to make friends and keep them! Indeed, friendliness is one of the keys to success!

I must say it's easy to make friends but it's hard to keep the real ones. I can always be a friend to anyone- even to the meanest, hahaha!

It's actually a real test of character on how to deal with people who's not too outgoing. Having a cheerful personality helps a lot too in gaining a lot of friends.

But in life, I realized that it's not how many friends you have but how many of them have stayed and treasured the friendship over time.

My mom always tell me to invest in my friends and relationship with others. She doesn't mean investing money but investing good relations with them.. Indeed, friends are great treasures.
