How to make people like you.

The quickest and simplest way to make people like you is to make them feel good.

How to make people feel good.

People love to be “seen” and “felt.” That means they want to know that you see who they really are. They want to know you can resonate with what they are feeling, even if you don’t agree with it.

To make them feel good, stop thinking about yourself, your needs, and your goals, and start being interested in them. Think about their motivations, their concerns and their desires.

You have two ears and one mouth. Use them accordingly.

How about the golden rule? No, not, “treat others the way you’d like to be treated.” If you want to make someone else feel good, treat them the way THEY would like to be treated.

What if you don’t care how other people feel?

Hmmm…Call me. We’ll talk.
