This is indeed my 101st blog post…thank you for following along. Hopefully at least half of what I have said is helping you in some way.
Today I am sharing some quick (only 3), but very powerful thoughts that I picked up from one of my mentors, John C. Maxwell, after listening to him speak about them recently, and they are centered upon RELATIONSHIPS. I will continue to share the rest (9 in all) over the next few blog posts.
My “call to action” for you after reviewing these is to actually apply them. Try to do it daily for at least one week. Make yourself a small cheat sheet if needed…it’s not really cheating, but rather a reminder.
Ways to successfully connect with others
1. People are insecure ⇒ so give them confidence. We see people as we are, not how they actually feel. Many people are hanging in the air, not firmly planted on the ground. So say something or do something that makes them feel better and more secure.
2. People want to feel special ⇒ so compliment them. Say something positive within the first 30 seconds of your interaction. Say it in front of their friends or others to have an even greater impact.
3. People want a bright future ⇒ so give them hope. Express something positive in their life. Some people are always drawing the shades, which makes it dark. Set positive expectations. We see what we look for.
More to come next week.
And as always, thanks for taking a few minutes to stop by today.
