THE INTERESTED CHALLENGE
The challenge as per I perceived after reading a chapter “HOW TO WIN FRIENDS AND WIN PEOPLE” from Dale Carnegie’s book is how we can gain the interest of other people by taking genuine interest in them.The most interesting thing I learn from this chapter is:
It is obvious that how you treat or behave with others, they will respond you the same. Everyone wants to talk about themselves rather then listening to others. Everyone needs attention ,love and time. So if we ask about themselves, about their lives, then we can obviously gain their interest. In this chapter the writer told the story of a musician that how he grab the attentions of others and gain their interest because he always gave value to his audience . And I think if we take interest in people they will definitely take interest in us.
After reading this I tried to implement this thing in my practical life.I met with my cousins and friends and asked about themselves that what are they doing now a days . First of all I observed and feel that when I asked questions about themselves everyone is so much surprised and they feel very happy because I ask in a polite and soft tune and I allow them to explain themselves.I talked to my Anti and ask her so many questions she started talking about her household activities and i feel that she is taking so much interest in talking about herself.Actually she is very interested in cooking so she said that she had tried many new recipes last weekend.And then I talked to my friends and asked about their education, what are they doing and what are their further plans.From this activity I have learnt that asking questions from others about themselves make them realized that I actually care about them.They feel very happy .By being interested in them you can win their hearts.I think sometimes people just need your attention and they want a person with whom they can talk .And for me it is a great experience .
