90 Seconds To Success – Dealing with Difficult People

Dealing with Difficult People. In life, we will always have to deal with difficult people, whether in our school, work place, or family. And, although we may believe it’s the person we do not like, it is usually a character trait that they posses. Even so, we generally categorize people into ones that we like, we don’t like, or we need something from.

90 Seconds to Success – Here’s Your Sign

Here's Your Sign. For years, Bill Engvall of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour has had a great stand-up routine about how people who say moronic things should be required to wear a sign to warn folks that they're stupid. But, the truth is, we all do stupid things. In this episode of 90 Seconds to Success, host Craig Thompson reminds us to practice humility when someone else wears on our nerves or shows a momentary lack of mental fortitude, instead of pointing our finger in disdain. We're all human -- and odds are, we hope others will be just as forgiving when we're the one acting dumb.
