& Grow Rich – Chapter 11
I like to observe people. Are they approachable?
Some people exhibit a warmth. They make eye contact, they smile, there is a
certain radiance about them. Others exhibit coolness. Their eyes are downcast
or avoiding, their expression glum, their energy flows like a black hole. Folks
exhibit these traits on the phone too.
Which type do You find more attractive?
More importantly, I note how people react to ME. Probably our best barometer of
how we are perceived is the reactions we get from small children and puppy dogs.
Whenever I relax on my lawn chair, owners walking their dogs get annoyed with
their pets. The doggies strain on their leashes because they want to come over
and visit with me. When they do approach, I don’t offer treats. I offer my
empty hand, pet them, and give them gentle praise.

his hand up for a high five.
In the parking lot a mother and her young daughter on a scooter passed by. The

his mom, stood inches away smiling at me. His mom followed him over and we had
a nice visit for a few minutes.
Umpires are traditionally the least popular folks at a ball field.
At the end of last season, my partner and I prepared to officiate a
championship final game of girls softball. We met with the coaches and key
players at the plate for a pre-game conference.
As everyone greeted each other, I extended my arm to the players of each team
for knuckle bumps. The players, on both sides in turn, grabbed my arm and embraced
me in a group hug.
During the game whenever a coach would groan about a call I made, he would then
chuckle and wink at me.
Just because we are on opposite sides of a situation, we do not need to be
Approachability is a key factor in our professional lives. Is the Transmutation
