Instead of getting fixated on things beyond your control, focus on what you can do.

In other people, we focus on the successful result, not the struggle and growth experiences they endured to reach it, while in ourselves, all we’re aware of is the struggle we endure and not the success that is readily apparent to others.

Connect with people emotionally

If you want to intrigue and influence people, you have to get their dopamine pumping.

A great way to do that is by having excellent conversation starters handy:What was the best part of your day and what was the worst part of your day?” and “What personal passion project are you currently working on right now?”
