Want to know what your friends think of you? Want to know what your friends think of you? Want to know what your Friends think of You?

There is a difference between what you think others think of you and what others actually think of you in their inner minds. This should be no surprise to anyone. It takes a lot of courage to just tell people their faults. That is why most people bite you behind your back and silently criticize you in their minds. Your intimate friends do not criticize you openly for fear of offending you; but they criticize you inwardly, as you do them. If you want to know what your friends think about you, behave and constantly improve yourself by being unselfish, wise, calm, meditative, fearless, sweet, sincere, courteous, methodical, true to your word, and unafraid to be firm, and your friends will be so overwhelmed that they will think, and talk loudly, about who you are.
Learn to be happy, and you will influence the people you meet to be happy. It is easy to wish that others would behave perfectly toward you, and it is easy to see their faults, but it is very difficult to conduct yourself properly and to consider your own faults. Your good example will do more to change others than your wishing, your wrath, or your words.
Wherever you are, remain awake and alive in thought, perception, and intuition -- ever ready to appreciate exemplary conduct and to ignore bad behavior. Your highest happiness lies in being ever ready to learn and to behave properly.
