Being Interested In Others
To be interested in other people is a skill, it requires practice, and it can be honed.This is what that work for me but might not work for you.There are many ways that one can show interest in other some of which are listed below:
- Make Your Greeting Stand Out:When you meet people for the first time you have an opportunity to make a positive impression on them.Make them feel like the most important person on this earth. Look them in the eyes with authenticity and offer them a friendly greeting. If its comfortable, give them a firm handshake or hug.
- Listen With Interest:There is a difference between simply listening to people and listening with deep interest. Listening with interest signifies that you really care about what they are saying in contrast to simply listening because it is the polite thing to do.
- Show Respect:When you show people respect, your actions express your interest in them.
- Encourage People:When you encourage others, you lift their spirits, enhance their self-confidence and motivate them.Perhaps more than anything you give them hope and inspiration.
When you show interest in others and the things that are important to them, they will show an interest in you and the things that are important to you.
