Believe everyone has an interesting story to tell

  • If you talk about yourself well, you’re creating a deeper connection with someone else
  • This is as human as it gets — you are expressing yourself and being acknowledged, heard and understood in the process
  • As such, there is no such thing as talking about yourself in a vacuum
  • Connection implies having two sides in the relationship
  • If you go into a conversation thinking only of yourself, the other party is going to sense that right away
