If you want to be rich, then be kind. It’s hard to create wealth unless you work well with others, and it’s hard to work well with others if you are unlikable. Even if you can do it without kindness, rich jerks end up poor in friendship. You can buy friends, but not good ones.

There's no upside in hating on someone's idea. You come off as non-believer or ruin their confidence. Instead, just ask the questions that make you hesitate & let them come to their own conclusion. If you're right, you helped them think it through. If you're wrong, you'll learn.

The longer I live, the more I notice how valuable it is to do one simple thing: be kind. - When someone does a good job, tell them. - When someone makes a mistake, forgive them. - When someone tells you their problems, listen. It barely costs a thing, but counts for so much.
