Our lives depend on our relationships with others.
We rely on others from the moment we’re born to raise us, nurture us and take care of us.
No matter how independent or self-reliant we become, we will always accomplish more with the help of others.
How to build relationships?
Take initiative. Lead the process.
By being curious.
Where are you from? Where did you grow up? Where have you been? Those are three variations of one simple question that could lead to hours of potential conversation.
When you take initiative to understand why another person thinks and feels the way they do, they become naturally intrigued about you.
“The people you are talking to are a hundred times more interested in themselves and their wants and problems than they are in you and your problems.” Dale Carnegie
