Conscious relaters are masters of influence. When speaking with them, you feel like you are the only person in the room. They ask questions that are important to you, and listen intently. They give you the impression of being heard and understood. After every interaction, you feel better having communicated with them. They leave you with the “impression of increase,” and your life experience is enhanced by having known them.
People remember how you make them feel, not how smart or witty you are. How many marriage proposals would you like? How many deals would you like to close? What type of influence would you like to have on your children? The key to helping you reach these goals is to relate consciously.
There are two fundamental principles to relating consciously:
- Ask questions and listen.
- Give the “impression of increase” in all your interactions.
