“Without even realizing it, we can nudge others towards success” … or not

By Shane Parrish for Farnam Street on Pocket

“The Pygmalion effect is a powerful secret weapon. Who wouldn’t want to help their children get smarter, help employees and leaders be more competent, and generally push others to do well? That’s possible if we raise our standards and see others in the best possible light. It is not necessary to actively attempt to intervene. Without even realizing it, we can nudge others towards success. If that sounds too good to be true, remember that the effect holds up for everything from rats to CEOs.”

Youths’ Perspective on What’s Important to Their Parents …

When students were asked what was more important to their parents … their success or their being kind, 80% responded in the study (Harvard, I think he said)  they believed success was more important to their parents revealed David Brooks on Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday, while discussing his latest book, The Road to Character.

The thing is, no matter how successful one becomes, without respect for one’s and other people’s lives, when push comes to shove, without the kindness and compassion respect generates, there is a strong possibility no one will reach out to help them if they are ever in need … whether due to their own mistakes, the mistakes of others, including financial collapses such as stock market, recessions, depressions, or natural disasters, etc.

And without developing high enough Respect Levels to counter what can become shallow and superficial existences, children will not have what it takes to be successful in all areas of their lives … including developing healthy, loving relationships and healthy, inclusive families, communities, nations, and global culture.
