A Successful Conversation

Ninety-five percent of conversation should be about the other person… five percent about yourself.

Always be asking questions and create small talk – but make it fun small talk – if you’re at a social event or dating, be sure it’s flirting or even seductive small talk. When asking questions, be sure you’re not asking questions that end up with one-word answers – probe for some details and have that other person feel like you’re genuinely interested in what they have to say.

Don’t forget to keep your body language in check and smile!

Failing and Succeeding

“I’ve failed over, over, and over again in my life. And that is why…..I succeed.” – Michael Jordan

Think about that for a moment… Are you sitting in limbo right now – studying this web site and others – waiting until you feel you have it all mastered before you get out there and wow the world (or just the woman or man next door). Stop jerking yourself around – you need real world practice – including the experience of failures.

Get out there right now – today or tonight. Go for a walk and chat up the first person you see!

Just Smile!

Be certain that you’re smiling… but just a ‘half smile’ – make it visible to those around you, but don’t be sporting a massive cheesy grin… make sure it’s not a ‘smirk’ either – an honest, genuine smile.

Now, as simple as that sounds, if you’ve never really been much for smiling in the past, you may think of yourself as smiling when in fact you aren’t – so, as silly as it sounds, get yourself in front of a mirror and do some practicing!
