All doors are open to the interesting speaker. And it is quite easy to become an interesting conversationalist, if you keep in mind the following simple rules:
1. Learn to listen and to be a sincere listener:
When you talk you learn nothing. When
you listen, you learn what others know.
The reason why so few people are agreeable in conversation, said La Petrochemical, is that each is thinking more of what he intends to say, than of what others are saying, and we never listen when we are planning to speak.
2. Have a broad, comprehensive vocabulary:
Thoughtful reading and a good
dictionary are of great help. Often we fail to rise to the occasion, when we
are asked to speak in public or approach the manager for an increase of salary
because words fail us.
3. Talk about the other person’s interest:
William James, the great
psychologist, says that the deepest yearning in the human heart is the desire
to feel important. All of us want to count. We want others to think well of us.
It is an essential human need.
Alvin H. Goeser, a public Relations
Officer, says: We are all to ourselves the centre of the universe. Hence our world revolves around us. The wise
businessman and employer will take himself out
of that centre, and let his employees customers occupy it. He will talk about
their interests. In fact, he will let them do the talking about their little
world; their homes, their wives, their children, their jobs, and the fish they
caught last summer. If we do not have time to talk to our customers, employees,
friends or members of our family about the little things that interest them, or
that are near and dear to them, we do
not have time to be successful.
Win appreciation and esteem by
putting into practice the old yet ever new Golden Rule. The Phoenician parents
used to tell their children.
Life is like a magic vase filled to
the brim. When you dip into it or draw from it,
it over flows into the hands of those who drop treasures into it.
Drop in hate and you will receive
Drop in envy and you will receive
Drop in kindness and you will receive
Drop in charity and you will receive
You alone can control the treasures
that life makes to overflow into your
heart and hands. Watch carefully what you put into the magic vase.
Life is full of surprises. And the
biggest surprise will be when you discover the hidden power in good
