Right Clothes for Conversation Success

plaid-shirt-1166213-m“You look amazing!” My then girlfriend, now wife, told me.
Earlier I had dropped some items off at a local thrift/second hand store. As I was walking out, a blue, silk shirt caught my attention.
5 Minutes later and $3 less rich I was the owner.
Over the next three years, people gave me dozens of compliments about the shirt.
Every morning as I chose which shirt to wear, I knew that choosing the blue shirt would bring me lots of compliments.
You and I choose our clothes to wear, but we can also choose our attitude.
Our attitude is more noticeable than our clothes and cologne.
Most would never intentionally go to work or school with stinky clothes or a mismatched outfit.
However, many have no problem walking around all day with a filthy attitude.
An attitude that…..
– Repels people
– Ruins the days of others
– Makes them and others depressed.
Clothe yourself with attitudes that attract people, make others happy, build relationships, and help make you a success.
Choose to clothe yourself with thankfulness and gratitude.
Pepper “Thank You” in your conversations. Tell someone, “I really appreciate how you…”
Look at the positives of life and be thankful.
As you dress up with this attitude you’ll be more like able and will brighten the lives of people around you.

Where is the shirt now? After years of use and many compliments, I took it back to the same store so they could sell it again to the next lucky person.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

poppy-girls-1086912-mSarah was popular in High School. She rapidly climbed the corporate ladder.  A social magnet at networking events. She found the love of her life.
Why? What made her different than the dozens of others who floundered in High school and washed out in the business world?
Was it looks? Not necessarily.
Was it good conversation skills?
She used many of the techniques taught in the Conversation Success System.
Her success could be traced back to one quality. Something her dad instilled in her.
A tactic she used 24/7.
The same quality that anyone can start applying in less than 30 seconds.  Apply it and people instantly will take notice.
Here it is.
Be Cheerful.
Sarah was cheerful all the time.
Cheerful is “noticeably happy and optimistic.”
Who wants to be around a sad, unhappy, pessimistic person? Sad, unhappy, pessimistic people.
Put on a cheerful attitude. Be optimistic and you’ll instantly shine!
You’ll be a light in a world of pessimism and unfriendly people.
Try it.
Though cheerfulness is powerful, it needs to be used wisely or it can irritate people. This minor risk pales in comparison to the power of cheerfulness.
Put on a cheerful attitude.
You’ll learn how to use it wisely so as not to irritate others. Or you can learn how in the Conversation Success System.
Sarah chose to be cheerful and it changed her life. Will you?

Two Magical Words

friends-1073437-mThree of us were standing in a circle chatting. Jim walked up. Instantly we knew he was having a rough day. His eyes showed it and his posture was slumped.
Chris asked, “Hi Jim. How are you?”
Jim said, “Disappointed my team lost.”
At this moment Chris could have said dozens of zingers and comebacks.
“Your Surprised? Your Team ______.”
“At least they were not blown out.”
“They deserved to lose.”
“It’s just a football game.”
But no. He used two words.
Two words which you should always use in this situation. Two which will make you likable and nearly compel people to enjoy being around you.
Chris said, “I’m Sorry”.
Then followed up with what was the score? Then more empathy.
Jim instantly brightened up!
Every day people around us are having bad days or hear some bad news. Could be minor. Could be major.
Just starting with “I’m Sorry” will brighten their day and help you connect with others.
Try it and let me know the results.
