In Episode Four, we talk about the golden rule. Growing up in the 20th century, we were taught the golden rule. What is that rule? A first-grade teacher brought us all into the classroom and said, “All right class, what’s the golden rule,” and we would all say in unison, “treat others the way you want to be treated.” With the best intentions, we were taught to treat everyone else the way that we wanted to be treated. This rule has fallen just a little bit short because now we see a world that is governed by people who are treating us the way they would want to be treated. Whether it is at a local level, a household level, or global level, the golden rule is still applicable.
Many of us have also learned that there is this new rule, the platinum rule. Updated for the 21st century, we now learn to treat others the way they would like to be treated. This is a lot better solution because it requires us to find out what people want. The platinum rule recommends that you understand their way of thinking so that you can treat them the way that they’d like to be treated, because odds are, they’re still seeking that success.
If you tune into our next two videos, we will talk about how to listen to understand and then what that bridge to success looks like. Remember the platinum rule, treat others the way they would like to be treated. It is a great way to live life. It is a great way to be surrounded by a lot of happy people. I will just leave it at that. Thank you for reading the blog post for episode four. Check us out on YouTube. We will see you in the next episode!
