How To Have A Great Conversation

Advertisement

Sometimes it happens that you tend to be blank what to say, how to keep going the conversation and how to make it a great one? This doesn’t only happen while having a conversation with a stranger but it also happens when you are having a conversation with someone you are familiar with. Anyways here we will be telling you how you can have a great conversation?

  1. Give another person the opportunity to speak
    If initially, you are feeling like being blank and have no clue what to say then you can ask the other person to speak because sometimes the other person has something interesting to share and this could kindle your interest in conversation and in this way you are most likely to have a great conversation.
  2. Add a spark
    The conversation sparks keep the conversation continue, it means after you started the conversation being a good listener is one part for making a great conversation but another important part is to ask interesting questions, such question that can enthuse others. ‘What if’ type questions will be great to ask.
  3. Don’t be judgmental
    It is to be considered must that while having a conversation you are not supposed to be judgmental about the opinions of other person or persons. The moment you will give an impression of being disapproving than the conversation will turn out be toxic.
  4. Add humor but be careful in using it
    Adding humor to the conversation makes it really great, it shows your excitement and interest too but one has to be very careful while adding humor because your humor shouldn’t contain any offensive and off the cuff remarks.
  5. Find what is common
    You can make conversation an outstanding one by figuring out what is common between you and the other person. For instance, if he is interested in cricket like you then you two could have a very long interesting discussion about your favorite teams, players and yes let’s not forget the bloopers.
  6. Ask and discuss the unforgettable moments
    Everyone sometimes in his life comes across such an incident that becomes an unforgettable moment of his life. Sharing such moments will not only make the conversation good but would also make you learn something for sure.
  7. Be authentic, be you
    If you are going to have a conversation with a newbie whom you don’t know then always display your originality and the authenticity of your personality. No one likes drama, no one can be entertained through van boast so make the conversation a decent and interesting one through your authenticity.
    Conversing nicely is an art, having a conversation and participating in it actively to make it a good one is truly not less than a great skill that one must learn.

In this scenario, it is not enough to be with what you already know. In order to utilize your maximum potential, you must attempt to escalate your knowledge of the world around you. And if you want to keep growing, you need to make learning a habit.

So here are some of the ways to make learning a habit:

  1. Prepare To-Learn List
    Generally, we used to keep the To-Do list. But now onwards, try to have the To-Learn list also. In that, write down the new areas of study which motivates you and keep it handy. Saving your ideas can lead you for more searching.
  2. Read More
    Somewhere after “Double up your profit,” “Beat the competition,” also put “Read More” resolution. For that, always strive to have a book with you or ready materials handy or on your smartphone so that you can read it whenever you get time to read.
  3. Keep Intellectual Friends
    Start spending time with people who actually invest their time in learning new things. Not just who are smart. If you know that some of your colleagues have a habit of learning, try to spend time with them. Studies show that we tend to grab the habits from the people around us.
  4. Teach Others
    We learn better and recall more when we think we will soon need to teach others. And we become a master in whatever we teach. So, if you have to learn something new, start to teach and share it with others. Once you start doing this, you would be surprised at the results, with the speed you expand your network, horizon, and new learning.
  5. Put it into Practice
    Practical and skill-based learning is useless if you do not apply it practically. The best way to absorb the new knowledge you got is to start using it within 24 hours of your exposure. So, try to inculcate it in your daily routine.
  6. Make it a Priority
    Many of external circumstances are going to restrain you from new learning. But your desire for knowledge should come in priority. Once you have decided to make learning a habit, it is up to you whether or not you make it a priority in your life.
  7. Be the Learning Seeker
    Always seek the opportunity to learn from your surroundings and every source. You can find a lesson from the very minute. An ant trying to walk carrying a sugar cube teaches us a lesson of perseverance. Like this, We can learn from anything, but we must carry observant eyes.

Being ignorant is not so much a shame, as being unwilling to learn – Benjamin Franklin.

Women Treat You How You Treat You

Advertisement

We always earn what we believe we deserve even if we think we deserve better. Therefore, even a woman will treat you how you allow and train her to based on your own self-belief. Understanding this one concept is the starting point to becoming a man with strong personal boundaries. Because your reality is a perpetual and often merciless mirror of whatyou believe about yourself, you’ll never be able to change the way a woman treats you if you don’t believe that you deserve better.

The human mind functions in such a way as to attain congruence (there’s that word again). It will work overtime to close the gap between who you think you are and what your behaviors portray until the two correspond.
This is why you’re compelled to behave in a way that matches with your self-belief. As the saying goes, “you can’t hide what’s inside.” If you inwardly believe that you’re a man of low-value, just about everyone you relate with will treat you as such.

Even your adoring wife or girlfriend might find herself struggling to treat you with respect if you neglect your own well being over time. No woman wants to be with a loser (unless she’s a loser herself) and she’ll give a man hell in an effort to induce a positive change.

So what’s the solution? How does a man increase his sense of self-worth and make it difficult for anyone to disrespect him? How does a man ensure that the opinion he has of himself is worth more to him than the opinions of others? The answer is so simple it’s embarrassing to say: Develop rock-solid self-belief by becoming a better man

Developing A Strong Frame

Advertisement

As a man, one of the most powerful concepts I’ve learned is the idea of framing, the awareness that the most sacred thing about a man is the integrity of his own mind. It’s the notion that a man must have such a strong conviction of his core values that nothing in his external environment can shake him of his self-belief or remove him from his path. This is the power of a man who has full possession of his own mind.

The great, American philosopher, Ralph Waldo Emerson, wrote a powerful essay called, Self-Reliance. The following is a short passage from this essay that sums up the idea of framing and how important it is for a man to be free from the opinions of others: “What I must do is all that concerns me, not what the people think. This rule, equally arduous in actual and in intellectual life, may serve for the whole distinction between greatness and meanness.

It is the harder because you will always find those who think they know what is your duty better than you know it. It is easy in the world to live after the world’s opinion; it is easy in solitude to live after our own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude.”

Of course, we can get deep into a philosophical discussion about the importance of not being so bullheaded and stuck in our thinking that we have difficulty gaining the support of others to truly make a difference in the world. But we won’t. I used this quote because it serves the idea of ‘framing’ perfectly in that it’s better to avoid being a slave to the opinions of others so that you can choose outside advice and knowledge much more freely.

What you think and believe about yourself, your life, your loved ones, your career, etc. should have more value to you than how everyone else views it. Passing a woman’s tests requires a self-approved frame of mind; therefore being dependent on outside opinions will only lead to failure.
You cannot lead a woman, or anyone else for that matter, if you crave being popular. To have a rock-solid, masculine frame is to commit to who you are, knowing that you’re unwilling to sacrifice who you are just to make someone else happy. Men without a strong frame may find that they often change their opinions and behaviors around different groups of people.

They are chameleons that usually aren’t sure of who they are regardless of how confident they may pretend to be on the outside. Men like this struggle the most not only with being tested by women, but being tested by life in general.
Here’s a simple example of a man maintaining his frame with his buddy: Let’s say you were going to the movies and a good friend arrived to pick you up. It’s a late showing and you decide to throw on a cap because you just love how caps look on you. Your buddy arrives, glances at you for a moment, raises an eyebrow, and asks, “You’re wearing a hat?” The subtext behind his questioning is, “Dude, there’s no sun in the movie theater. You’ll look silly. Take it off and let’s go.” A man with a weak frame might try to explain his choice of apparel. He may even feel silly and take it off.
A man with a strong frame, who’s fully convinced of his sense of style, might say something like, “And you’re not?” Boom. He re-framed the exchange to illustrate that he’s confident with his choice, he doesn’t care what anyone thinks, and most importantly, that he’s somewhat baffled as to why his friend wouldn’t wear one as well.

Men with strong frames look on the inside to see if they’re on the right path.
They often look at the outside world wondering why more people aren’t doing it the way they are. Men with weak frames do just the opposite. They are always looking on the outside as they try to do things as right and perfect as they can. And when they do look inward all theysee are the mistakes they’re making and the things that need fixing. Don’t do this. I can tell you from personal experience that this is no way for a man to live his life. So do yourself a favor and stop living in a perpetual cycle of self-doubt. It’s unmanly.

Do you now see the dangers to your relationships and the anxietyinducing stress that can come from having a weak frame as a man? Good, because so do women. And they will test the living daylights out of you until you figure out who you are as a man and confidently assert those inner convictions.
Resist the impulse to torture yourself by caring too much about what other people think of you. It’s a habit of thought, a type of mental conditioning, and just like any other habit it can be unlearned over time.
