Learn to make new friends

HWM (Malaysia) - - FEATURE -

Meet­ing new peo­ple can be ex­cit­ing. You get ex­posed to new per­spec­tives and you may even learn some­thing new. Plus, who knows where it could lead to? You may end up with a new friend or a busi­ness part­ner.

How­ever, mak­ing new friends can be chal­leng­ing, and even more so if you are shy. But here’s a tip that has been en­dorsed by many re­la­tion­ship ex­perts. When in a so­cial set­ting like a com­pany din­ner and dance or an event, look for the per­son that looks even more un­com­fort­able than you and say hello to them. There­after, it’s all about be­ing your­self.

How­ever, if you are truly clue­less, a good book to read would be Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and In­flu­ence Peo­ple. Pub­lished in 1936, it has sold over 15 mil­lion copies world­wide and is al­most equiv­a­lent of the bi­ble for those who wish to be more so­cia­ble. In it, you will find help­ful and ef­fec­tive tips to help you make more friends and be more lik­able.
