“A brilliant conversationalist talks to you about you.”
Most of us are never happier than when the conversation has turned away from others and toward ourselves. When people talk to us about our lives, our family, our achievements or our goals, we subconsciously feel we must be worthy of attention. Our confidence rises; we feel energized, cared about and uplifted. Deep inside we’re a little proud that we have become the center of attention.
Now think about how little it would take from you to create all those positive feelings in others! A few questions, a focused ear, and a genuine interest in what you are hearing, and you too can pass on the gift of added energy, caring and confidence to a friend, a neighbor or a family member. Imagine the power we could create if we all did this today!
Let’s try it!
