By Alan C. Fox
Having obtained success in fields as diverse as commercial real estate, philanthropy, and the arts, Fox attributes his accomplishments to what he has learned about building relationships and finding pleasure in everyday life. "Successful relationships are the bedrock of successful careers, families, and friendships, which in turn are the hallmarks of a successful and enjoyable life," he explains. "The more tools you have, and the better you understand the tools you use, the more quickly and effectively you will achieve success," says Fox.
In PEOPLE TOOLS, Fox speaks openly - and often with humor - about his life and how he has learned to use a myriad of People Tools. For example, he describes how, in a psychology class, he questioned the premise that positive reinforcement is the best way to encourage repeat good behavior. Because this was the opposite of what he had been taught by - and had experienced with - his own father, Fox was convinced that the professor was mistaken. However, when encouraged by his teacher to conduct his own experiment, he quickly realized - by complimenting his wife on preparing his favorite meal and his son on his accordion playing - that "Catching Them Being Good" is, in fact, the strongest reinforcement of behavior.
"Just like hammering in a nail, thriving in life requires that you find and apply the best tool for each job," Fox writes. Among the other People Tools he describes are:
But, says Fox, the real question is: Which prophecy will help you succeed more often? "If prophecies tend to be self-fulfilling, I prefer to infuse them with optimism," he writes.
Target Practice: A life goal is a target. Fox advises approaching this form of "archery" by expanding your target - making your goal more and more general. "Instead of using a miniscule bull's eye, I aim at a target big as an IMAX screen," he writes.
Stuff It Into Your Sub: When facing a tough problem with no immediate solution, Fox suggests that you "stuff it into your sub (conscious). That is, put it to the back of your mind, and then revisit it in an hour, a day, or a week. Chances are, you'll find you've devised a solution without even "thinking" about it.
Climb a Mountain: Just as Fox did when he allowed a more physically active friend to persuade him to hike up a mountain, occasionally do something you are not accustomed to, even something you fear. Get all the help you need. The vistas will be worth it, says Fox.
Throughout PEOPLE TOOLS, Fox shares his own experiences in business, as a husband, as a father, and as a son. The fifty-four People Tools he describes provide a foundation on which anyone can build. As he explains, "The total potential supply of People Tools is virtually unlimited. You can easily invent your own personalized set of Tools, selecting those which work best for you and eliminating those which are not helpful."
"When you experience joy in your life, what else do you really need? asks Fox.

Alan C. Fox tells us how to turn lemons into lemonade in his book "People Tools"
Alan C. Fox comes to BookTrib for a Live Chat to talk about his highly anticipated new book PEOPLE TOOLS.
Alan Fox is a big fan of this mantra and shares many other heartfelt musings in "People Tools. Fox recounts his bout with appendicitis at a young age, learning to deal with the ebb and flow of pain and taking the bad with the good. But there is much more to making good out of a bad situation. He also recognizes that success does not always breed success...indeed it is often the other way around: Failure can also equal success. Lemons start out bitter, but with a little bit of sugar and water, you end up on the sweeter side of things. This is the essence of Fox's book: approaching all situations with a positive spin will strengthen your relationships, create happiness and speed up your success rate.
ALAN C. FOX has achieved tremendous success in his professional and personal life. He has university degrees in accounting, law, education, and writing. His real estate company manages more than $1.5 Billion of commercial property in 11 states and he is the founder, editor, and publisher of the award winning and highly esteemed "Rattle" poetry journal.
