Successful People Aren’t Wrapped Up in Themselves

There’s a really old joke that’s almost a cliché; “Enough about me, let’s talk about you. What do you think about my new haircut?” This joke approaches being a cliché because it is the embodiment of someone who is wrapped up in himself or herself.

Don’t be this way. Take an active and genuine interest in other people. You’ll build better relationships, but you’ll also get to learn some pretty interesting things about some cool people. Everybody has a story. Your life will be richer if you take the time to learn other people’s stories.

Cathy and I know a few people who love to talk about themselves, but show very little interest in us. We’re polite; so when we meet them in a social setting, we’ll usually ask a few questions about them and their families. Both of us are genuinely interested in people, so we can keep a conversation going for quite a while just by asking questions whose answers we would like to hear.


Currently studying Psychotherapy , Cognitive psychology, Biological psychology, Counselling psychology and CBT and NLP. I believe in truth, honesty and integrity! ≧◔◡◔≦
