Today’s article is from my good friend Jason Connell. Jason has a rare gift: he makes people feel like the best version of themselves.
This skill has created amazing opportunities for him. Jason consults for millionaires, politicians, athletes, and professional entertainers. He’s dated models with Ivy League educations. And shortly after moving to Denver, Colorado, he established himself as the linchpin in an amazing circle of artists, entrepreneurs, and influencers.
Everyone wants to be happy. But after reflecting on the hundreds of conversations I’ve had in 2016, something became quite clear to me…
A lot of people don’t feel happy on a day-to-day basis. And that’s devastating to me.
So, my goal is to make 2017 the year where you find lifelong happiness.
We all know that practice makes perfect. And like anything else, working on your romantic skills will help you attract more people and build stronger connections.
The tricky part, though, is that practicing this stuff comes with high stakes.
When you’re learning something like piano, messing up is no big deal. You sound terrible for a second, get frustrated, and then try that chord again. But if you go talk to someone and make a fool of yourself, you have to deal with the potential face-to-face awkwardness and rejection.
Hiding behind a device has made it INFINITELY easier for all of us to be, for lack of a better word, “flakes”.
I don’t mean flake as a judgment of someone’s character. I’m talking about anyone – guy or girl – who makes plans with people but then always cancels on them.
A lot of men tell me the hardest part of meeting women is not having a friend to go out with. They say…
All their friends are in a relationship or married. Or their buddies don’t like to go out to socialize and meet new people. Or, everyone they know is afraid to cold approach women.
