Emersons Keys to Success and The Golden Rule

"Every violation of truth is not only a sort of suicide in the liar, but is a stab at the health of human society. On the most profitable lie the course of events presently lays a destructive tax; whilst frankness proves to be the best tactics, for it invites frankness, puts the parties on a convenient footing and makes their business a friendship. Trust me and they will be true to you; treat them greatly and they will show themselves great, though they make an exception in your favor to all their rules of trade."

The Golden Rule philosophy is to "do unto others as they would like you to do unto them." If you don't know what they like, you can always ask. If you treat people fairly and go out of your way just to make people happy, you will usually have the same favor returned to you. You can learn something from everyone you meet, and before you ever judge someone see what they have to offer, before you misjudge them.

If only the world could live by this simple rule. But adopting this rule here and now I can guarantee you will live a happy and successful life. Its that simple.
