Relationships are an important factor of you overall happiness, this is why I researched this topic and read many books about this topic. How can I build strong and lasting relationships and lucky for you I found an answer which when looking at it sounds easy, but needs a bit of a mind shift for most people. (at least the ones I know)

Dale Carnegie wrote in his book how to win friends & influence people about 6 principles you can apply to make people like you more and by this build a better relationship.

The 6 principles to build better relationships.y

Dale gives in his book 6 principles that help you with building a relationship with others, he helps you that other people like you more.

  1. Become genuinely interested in other people.
  2. Smile.
  3. Remember that person’s name.
  4. Be a good listener.
  5. Talk in term of the other person’s interest.
  6. Make the other person feel important and be sincere about it.
Become genuinely interested in other people.

In short, if you really want to know, people tend to sense it. Somehow, we notice when someone is polite and when someone is sincerely interested.

A smile is magic, it does not only make you feel better, but it also helps you make a better impression. A smile is contagious, if you start smiling the chances are high that the person you are smiling at while do the same. If you talk on the phone and you smile, somehow the other person on the other end notices it and you will come over more positive to this person.
Remember that person’s name.

For me this is one of my improvement area’s I am not good with names and sometimes even mix them up. But a person’s name is so important to them, I hate it when people mis spell my name or announce it incorrect. So, by taking the effort to remember a person name you avoid those traps, but you also show that you took the effort to remember it.

Be a good listener.
Many people find themselves very interesting, they might not be willing to admit it. But you know its true, most people love to talk about things that are important to them. So, if you really listen and do it with true interest, they are more likely to open up and be more willing to help you out.
Talk in terms of the other person’s interest.

People like to talk about what they are interested in so by combing this with the other principles you are set to for a lovely story. Where the other person feels he is truly heard.

Make the other person feel important and be sincere about it..
The last of the six is make the person feel important, make that person the center of the universe for a brief moment and they are likely to light up. Just be honest we all want to feel important in what we do and want some form of recognition.

To conclude

These principles are in their concept quite simple, but I still catch myself forgetting them sometimes. But when I apply them, I notice the effects instantly, I Hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
