The Fastest Way to Influence People

Dale Carnegie said, “You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get people interested in you.”

Here’s why this works.

When you want to effectively influence people, the best thing you can do is find out what their needs are.

And, if you can appropriately help them meet their needs or support them, keep doing it.

This shows that you’re interested in them.

It also shows that you, your needs, and your ego come second.

This exponentially increases the chances that they will become interested in you.

Of course, it doesn’t always work. But, most of the time it does.

So, don’t give up if it doesn’t work immediately.

It’s still the fastest way to effectively influence people.
