“When dealing with people, remember you are not dealing with creatures of logic, but with creatures bristling with prejudice and motivated by pride and vanity.”
Dale Carnegie

.
I was reading Carnegie’s secrets in How to Win Friends and Influence  and I was surprised by it’s simplicity. Here are a few of his methods:

.
Show genuine interest in someone else.

.
Remember people’s names

.
Listen.

.
Sincerely make someone feel important.

.
Smile.

.
Try to help people. Work on the insecurity and make bold, but humble, asks:

.
Invite someone to breakfast or coffee.

.
Ask for a few minutes to chat on the phone.

.
Listen, smile, and thank them

.
Try it, talk to people today about themselves and remember their name is one of the sweetest and most important sounds to them.

.
“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.”
Dale Carnegie
