Make Others Feel Good

by Byron on March 3, 2019

Guys-

Making other people feel good – typically about themselves – may actually be the secret to life.

The problem here is you have to be self-assured enough to step out of your comfort zone and actually make someone else feel good.  You have to say the compliment.  You have to smile first.  You have to tell a story that may be met with laughter.  You have to take the risk.

Once upon a time, I didn’t know how to be gregarious or make other people feel good.  I learned by watching other people and how they made me feel about myself and how I guessed they made other people feel.  When I saw people really good at making others feel good, I said to myself, “I want to be like that.”
Quickly I realized that I needed to take risks.  The allure was enough for me to take risks.  I inherently knew that if I made others feel good, I would feel good.  I was right.
You can always start by just saying “Hi.”  It’s just “Hi.”
Love you guys!
Dad
