You are your number one favourite subject.
You have to be – because, have you ever noticed, that wherever you go, there you are.
Who else gets to spend 24 hours a day with you?
In work – “Communication”, “Culture”, “Change” – they are all about you. So communicate and behave as you believe everyone could – don’t wait for, or worry about others – make the choice to change something about yourself.
Then, just watch what happens.
When you speak about anything, including other people, you can only ever do that from your own point of view – it is nothing about arrogance, ego or pride. It is all about confidence, caring and self.
A confident you doesn’t have to talk about you, you don’t have to prove yourself, and you don’t have to be “right.”
Instead, you can focus on the other – entirely on the person you are with.
Want to build rapport, make more friends and be incredibly popular?
Next person you meet, listen, and really listen to them (clue: they will talk about themselves), ask them questions about themselves, and as you do throw mental waves of positive emotion towards them – from your heart to theirs.
You know our philosophy in Naked Leader – do it, and see if it works.
And it will.
It is the very opposite of “that’s enough about me, tell me about you. What do you think of me?”
Trust yourself, be yourself and something magical happens – because you have realised it is all about you – you have made it not about you, at all. You have made it all about them.
Now, that is powerful, that is rare, and the results are amazing (for you, and for them).
With your love and best wishes
