Do you want to know the #1 secret to making friends and having influence on others?
Take your attention off of yourself and think primarily about, and from the perspective of, the other person.
- Help them feel important.
- Help them feel appreciated.
- Help them feel heard.
- Help them feel respected.
And don’t do it for a select few people because you think it will benefit you.
Do it for everyone you come in contact with because that’s the kind of person you are.
When you’re speaking with someone today, if you notice your thoughts turning inward…stop yourself.
Redirect your thoughts towards your conversational partner and help them feel like the most important person in your life at that moment.
As you practice this skill in your life, you’ll experience the incredible confidence that is built through stronger friendships and greater influence.
