In many ways people respond to others the same way an animal responds to its owner. Dog trainers claim that the one who feeds the dogs is the one the dogs will bond too. I have two little dogs who I love with all my heart. All of my children are raised but those two little puppies keep me busy. I love to play with them and NUTURE them and they respond by showing me some things about dogs that are the same as people.
1. Before you can do anything in the lives of others you must first show them LOVE. Without LOVE there is no connection. That is true with people as well as animals. Without LOVE there can be no connection, no future and no success together.
2. RESPECT acknowledges another person’s ability or potential to CONTRIBUTE. Listening to other people shows respect to them, when you put their agenda ahead of your own. Study and learn the POWER OF RESPECT.
3. Another part of NUTURING is showing a SENSE OF SECURITY. People will be very slow to TRUST you if they do not feel SECURE. They need to know that they are safe with you. Part of making people feel SECURE comes with INTEGRITY. They feel SECURE when your WORDS AND ACTIONS can be trusted.
4. And finally there is a great need in NUTURING PEOPLE with RECOGNITION. We need to make sure we share RECOGNITION and show APPRECIATION for a job well done or a service well planned.Think about these FOUR things and work them into your daily planning and you will see great rewards in the way you treat people and the way they treat you.
