3 Big Ideas from What’s in It for Them?

People want to connect. People want to feel special and cared about. People want to feel appreciated. People want to have their problems solved. And if you’re a person who cares about others and can solve their problems, there’s no limit to what you can accomplish or the peace and joy you can find in your own existence.

To build deep connections with others be useful, grateful, and valuable. These are the foundations of strong relationships. It starts as an awareness in your mind of other people’s needs, wants, and pains, and it continues with identifying what you could add to an interaction to address or alleviate those things.

Connecting with people requires a balance of trust, rapport, and comfort. Rapport is trust plus comfort. Trust is comfort plus time. Deep trust can only be established over time because time proves a person’s reliability.
