I really like writing and speaking, but I’ve not always been good at it. I’ve usually been funny and interesting, but I’ve worked for the past fifteen years or so at honing my skills. I could share with you a list of things I’ve learned, but honestly, that list wouldn’t do you much good. Every speaker and writer is different. So, instead, I’ll share with you one simple secret..
Maybe the surest way to be liked by people is simply to like people. But that’s a risk right? To openly like someone? To admit to someone: I like you. I’d like to spend time with you today. It’s to risk rejection. It’s vulnerability. It’s brave.
Most people I know who aren’t having much of an impact in the world suffer from one of two problems. Either they don’t know what they want to do or they are trying to do too much. I’ve never really had trouble knowing what I’ve wanted to do, but I’ve had tons of trouble trying to do too much. And this is a problem.
