How to Make New Friends

How to Make New Friends



     1. When people talk to me, I will do the following:


          a. I will stop whatever I’m doing and give that person my full concentration.


              i. I will look that person in the eyes at all times.


             ii. I will smile at them.


            iii. I will listen closely to whatever they say


            iv. I will respond as kindly as I am able


             v. I will ask that person questions about themselves or about whatever they’re talking to me about


          b. I want that person to feel like they are the most important person in the world.


     2. If people aren’t talking to me, I will seek out others that aren’t being talked to either. These people will appreciate my kindness and hopefully should respond with kindness as well.


          a. I will give that person my full concentration.


               i. I will look that person in the eyes at all times.


              ii. I will smile at them.


             iii. I will ask that person questions about themselves or about whatever they’re talking to me about


             iv. I will listen closely to whatever they say


             v. I will respond as kindly as I am able


         b. I want that person to feel like they are the most important person in the world.


Do this every day and eventually I will make a whole bunch of new friends!
