This is a basic rule in relationships and yet people don’t seem to appreciate value of a smile. People are so focused on achieving the particular task at hand that they are not aware they have been wearing a frown the whole time. It is always easy to warm up to people who are smiling than to people who are wearing a perpetual scowl. Scowling, frowning and other serious expressions stop people from coming up to you and striking a conversation. Even if you are the one who makes the first move, but if you are wearing a frown, you will have a hard time endearing yourself to others. Don’t hesitate to join a conversation and ask question. This feels awkward at first because you may sound like you are interrupting. But if you master the trick, getting into any discussion will come naturally. Asking a question and pinching in some of your ideas and opinions make people feel that you are interested and you have something to contribute. But while talking gets the attention of people, doing all the talking will turn them off. Nobody likes a person who dominates a conversation. Learn to listen. Give other people a chance to speak. This way, the discussion is more interactive and you will have the opportunity of knowing everybody.
