Seven Magic Phrases That Can Get You Anyone’s Trust

Published

on

Slip the following magic phrases into your conversations to build trust not only between your friends and family, but also with your coworkers.

“I’m all ears”
Telling someone “I’m all ears” is the first step, but to really make this effective you have to follow through. This statement ensures you’re holding yourself accountable for listening intently when someone is speaking to you.

However, learn to match your body language to the level of engagement you want to reflect in the conversation and make sure to acknowledge their ideas.

“Sorry about the traffic”
A study in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science found that participants were quicker to trust people who started a conversation by apologizing for something they weren’t responsible for. By issuing a superfluous apology, you acknowledge someone else’s misfortune and express sympathy.

“Hi! You’re looking…”
Don’t just ask friends and coworkers an insincere “How are you?” while you walk past them. Pause and take a moment to comment on their appearance, whether they look happy, sad, or sick.

There is a high chance that You will spark a conversation about the weekend plans they’re looking forward to or the sick child they’re taking care of. Instead of making small talk, “it’s a much deeper conversation, but people almost always respond well to it, as it builds that emotional tie.

“I understand what you’re saying”
Even if you disagree with someone’s views, show them you respect their beliefs with a phrase like “I appreciate your opinion” before trying to change their mind. You can then proceed to provide an example that supports their perspective before transitioning the conversation to your perspective.
By doing this, they will feel less criticized and will be more open to trusting what you have to say.

“In my opinion…”
When you’re about to share that dissenting opinion, you can move between showing you want to understand the other perspective and your take on the subject. Phrases like “in my opinion” and “others suggest” make you seem more open to other opinions than “I” statements.
Also avoid saying “actually” and “in your opinion,” which imply the other person is wrong.

“How did you think that went?”
When starting a conversation about how someone could improve, let people gauge their success by their own standards. Starting with your own judgments could make the other person clam up and share less information.

Let them decide how successful it was and what they want to talk about. If you put a judgment on it and ask what they can do better, it puts that person on the defenses.

“What can I do differently?”
Asking this question lets others know you’re open to positive change and not set in old and potentially ineffective ways. In order to build a positive team mentality, you should show that you are willing to make changes to help others out when needed.

Not only can this mentality help out a team working to achieve a goal, it also shows that you possess the motivation for self-development.

I'm a person who is positive about every aspect of life. There are many things I like to do, to see, and to experience. I like to read, I like to Gossip, I like to write; I like to dream; I like to talk, I like to listen. and blogging Makes it easy for me to Express Myself

Ladies! Here is one major reason why guys suddenly stop showing interest in you after a while

Published

on

Too many times, women have complained about men showing interest, blowing hot, sending messages, giving compliments and following all these up with even more attention.

After all the work and effort to get the woman’s attention, what then follows is a disappearance act that surpasses a magician’s. After all the warmth shown in the beginning to get the woman to notice them, what they do next is go cold turkey – no more calls, no more attention. Everything is brought to a sudden stop!

Of course for many women who have experienced this, it is both confusing, annoying, frustrating, tiring and just totally unexplainable.

But why exactly do men do this? The [logical] reaction of some women is to first begin to wonder if it was something they did wrong, something really bad to piss off the man to the point that he would no longer want anything to do with them. They think and think and many times, they reach the conclusion that it could not have been something they did and the disappearance becomes even more confusing.

In some other cases, the guy is reachable but he’s not as open as he was before. He is not as sweet, not as intense, not as dedicated and not as committed to making things work as he was once.

As a woman faced with this kind of indifference in place of the excitement and affection a man used to show in her before, the truth you need to know is that that half the time, it’s not something you did. It’s all on him, not you.

This is so because, some men date for sport. In other words, they just do this for fun, out of boredom. Pursuing a woman with words and efforts, wooing her, showing her interest and doing all those things that translate as effort… they just do it for the fun of it.

When they get tired of the thrill [usually, after getting your complete attention and sometimes, sex], they just pull out [no pun intended]. The interest either reduces till it vanishes or they ghost on you completely.

So if you are sure that it was not something you did, and he is not even giving you an opportunity to know why he suddenly stopped showing interest, then there’s really nothing you could possibly do and it’s about time you stopped bothering yourself about him and let him go.

If there’s any other lesson to learn here, it is that time takes care of many things. When a guy begins to show interest in you, make sure to give it a reasonable amount of time before committing to too much or getting too deeply involved.

You really don’t want to be moved by something that would later turn out to be a false dawn.

Here are 3 worst names you can ever call your partner

Published

on

In a many happy relationships, partners are usually free to joke freely, fool around with each other, poke fun at each other and of course, call each other names, all in good humour.

1. Fat

If you call your woman this, you would be creating for yourself an issue that is totally avoidable. She may forgive you but the concern may never leave her. The body worry will always be there long after you have apologized and told her that you only said it in a moment of craziness.

She may never stop wondering if you really find her sexy and she may also never stop being insecure about her body.

2. Worthless
Calling your partner this will call to question their importance in your life. All the good they have ever done… everything gets called to question and it will hurt really badly.

They may forgive. But will they forget?

3. Ugly

This one is flat out wrong. Don’t do it. No anger, no disagreement, or quarrel should make you do this. It’s so wrong.
