“Focus on being interested rather than interesting” do this you will be welcome anywhere said by Dale Carnegie in his book “How to win friends and influence people”. The author give many examples regarding how to win friends, the lesson which i learn from this reading is that if you pay more attention to others without any personal concern without any expectation, you will be earn much more. If you want people will respect you so firstly you should respect them in order to gain respect.
I actually apply this principle in my life, really it works much more. After a long time I talked to one of my college friend Sidra Abbasi and focus more attention on being interested in her. Now currently she is working in a bank regardless of her busy schedule she talked me about an hour and shared her work experiences, routine activities, about her future plans and many more. It was very pleasant experience, to become genuinely interested in other people.
As Dale Carnegie said “ 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” I totally agreed with that one should adopt this principle in ones life as I applied it really works. We must pay attention on humbleness, politeness and being interested in others so that we can win more friends and influence others as it is a two way street, both parties benefit.
