Honestly, I never had much money in my pocket. But hung out with very wealthy individuals. They brought me everywhere, and spent a big deal of money on me. I guess they must have really liked me.
But what was special about me? What quality did I have that others didn’t possess? What did I bring that others couldn’t? Why pick me?
I always listened attentively, thought properly about what was told to me, and responded honestly with constructive criticism and good feedback.
So what if it was a millionaire sharing his idea or business plan? If i saw flaws, I was never shy enough to hold myself back from laughing at the obvious (what was to me). I was always bold in telling the truth.
What made me stand out was my refusal to kiss anyone’s ass or to pretend to like an idea when it wasn’t worth a penny in my eyes.
If you want to make friends with people.
You have to lift them up and make them feel good about themselves.
