Be truly interested in others to build solid relationships.
Consider the dog. He is the greatest winner of friends the world has ever known, and all he does is give affection and love and show his interest in you. Similarly, if you express this level of interest in others, people will be hard-pressed not to like you. And they will want to build a relationship with you.
Remember to be patient, listen to everything the other person has to say, and relate what you want to talk about to their interests. If you can do this, you will find that your relationship with the other person will be stronger than ever.
Sincerely listen to everything that others have to say.
Be interested in them, and strive to understand them.
Smile at everyone you see—you’ll brighten both their day and yours.
