Talk in terms of the other person’s interests - Deepstash

Talk in terms of the other person’s interests

  • The deepest urge in human nature is ‘the desire to be important.’ Make others feel important.
  • Give honest and sincere appreciation.
  • The only way on earth to influence other people is to talk about what they want and show them how to get it. 
  • Get the other person’s point of view and see things from that person’s angle as well as from your own.
  • 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.
  • Remember that a person’s name is to that person the sweetest and most important sound in any language.
