How to Win Friends

Posted by medliorator on August 24, 2008

1. “If You Want to Gather Honey, Don’t Kick Over the Beehive”
don’t criticize, condemn or complain. People rarely blame themselves for anything, so if you criticize them not only are they unlikely to change, but also they may resent toward you.

2. The Big Secret of Dealing with People
People will go long way – sometimes even become insane – just to get the appreciation they need. So be a person who give honest and sincere appreciation to others.

The way to make a good first impression is so simple that we sometimes forget it: smile. When you smile, people will feel that you are glad to meet them. They will feel accepted and get a good first impression about you.

3. If You Don’t Do This, You Are Headed for Trouble
People put tremendous importance on their names. Therefore it will be much easier for you to win their hearts if you approach them by using their names.

4. An Easy Way to Become a Good Conversationalist
It may seem counterintuitive, but being a good conversationalist is about by how good you talk. It’s about how good you listen. Encourage others to talk about themselves and be a good listener.

Dale Carnegie: You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.
