The fastest highway to people’s hearts.
Did you know you can make more friends in two months by being interested in other people than you can in two years trying to get them interested in you. People are always going to be interested in themselves; morning, day and night.
I have discovered from personal experience that one can win the attention, time and co-operation of even the most sought-after individual by becoming genuinely interested in them. All of us like people who admire us. No matter to constrained we may be in regard to time, we will always create time for those who genuinely admire us.
If we want to make friends and build relationships, let’s put ourselves out to do things for others that require time, energy, unselfishness and thoughtfulness. Don’t buy people gifts that are too general like chocolate or yoghurt, get them something that clearly says, “I was thinking of you.” Let’s greet people with animation and enthusiasm. Showing a genuine interest in others not only wins’ friends for you but creates loyalty in customers to your business.
If you want others to like you and if you want to develop genuine friendships, if you want to help others as you help yourself, become genuinely interested in other people. Genuine interest yields genuine friendship and relationships. Cultivate genuine interest and admiration in other people to create authentic relationships.
