It's invisible but it is real. It's the feeling you get when you're around a special person. You feel better, you feel "up," you feel excited or happy.

That's called energy. It's infectious.

The opposite is true as well. A downer of a person, low energy, no initiative—is a drag on life. I can't say you can do anything about it. But I can say if you are able to, please crank up the energy, for your own good.

You can trace how much success a person has and how attractive they are to others by how much energy they exude.

What's the cost?

What's the cost of not admitting you're wrong? Or that someone else has a brilliant idea? Or that you may have misunderstood something? Or that you are fortunate to have this particular opportunity?

There is no cost except in terms of pride or ego. So why pay the price?

Say nothing

Words are just words. They sometimes mean nothing, sometimes they hurt and once in a while they actually help.

If a person isn't interested in listening, then any words will fall on deaf ears. If you lose your cool and say hurtful things, those words could damage a relationship.

Often, it's best to say nothing unless you're invited to do otherwise.
