money bagTwo actors who haven't seen each other in several weeks run into each other on the street.

1st actor: Haven't seen you in a while. How's everything going?

2nd actor: Pretty good. Two weeks ago I got a call from a lawyer in Florida. It seems I had an aunt that I never knew about that died and left me $2,000,000.

#1: That's great!

#2: Yeah. And then last week I hit the lottery and won $7,000,000.

#1: Wow, that's wonderful!

#2: Yeah, but this week, nothing!

1. Before you say anything to anyone, ask yourself 3 things:

- Is it true?

- Is it kind?

- Is it necessary?

2. Make promises sparingly and keep them faithfully.

3. Never miss the opportunity to compliment or say something encouraging to someone.
