Day 92: How to make friends

You know I am time after time surprised by the fact,  that people tell me how hard they find it to make friends.
I really never experienced that issue.
I have traveled and lived all over the world, and found it very easy to find ways to meet and make new friends.
You can call me a professional friend collector hahaha.
I love meeting new people and making new friends.
I have noticed early on in life, that the simple solution to make new friends is to just listen and genuinely care about the other person.
Make eye contact, ask questions, pay attention, repeat what they say, to show them that you are really paying attention.
Throw your own agenda out the window.
Your time in the spot light will come.
Have patience.
Always try to find a solution to problems.
Be a concierge, meaning be a valuable resource to others.
Make others smile and don't let them dwell in their own negativity.
There are a lot of energy suckers out there.
You know what I mean, the people who like to play victim and lead with negativity and like to dwell in their own sorrows.
Show them the light at the end of the tunnel.
Be relatable.
Give them little snippets of your personal story.
Be real and authentic.
Throw your filter out the window.
If you open up, they will open up.
Action, reaction.
People can smell honesty a mile away.
Trust me, the minute you open up about your story, the whole world will open up to you!
Try it out and get back to me.
To be continued......
