For THE Best Advice I EVER received... Read on..
Do you get nervous talking to the opposite sex? Do you feel weird and uncomfortable at social gatherings, do you get anxious meeting new people? Don't know what to say, don't know how to be?
I got you covered.
I'm about to share with you, hands down, THE BEST piece of advice anyone ever shared with me:
People LOVE to talk about themselves.
It's the subject they know best. Rather than finding things to talk about and trying to be the star of some odd one-person show, ASK PEOPLE QUESTIONS ABOUT THEMSELVES.
How are you? How was your day? What's your job like? What's your favourite thing to do on a day off?
Ask questions. and most importantly -- LISTEN WELL to the responses.
You'll leave being a hit of the party without having spoken much at all.
Because you've been generous - asking questions, you've been thoughtful - listening to the responses, you've been DIFFERENT - because you asked.
It's so simple but honestly, some of the best advice I've ever received and has taken away any social anxiety I may have had.
Ask questions. People Love to Talk about Themselves.
