Why should you have confidence to talk to anyone?

By Mark Rhodes | Social Confidence

Talk to Absolutely Anyone? Talk to Strangers?

What’s that all about?

Well, it’s all about my belief and the belief that others who are able to speak to absolutely anyone seem to hold or acknowledge.

Well, I believe no matter where we are today it is limited by the number of people that we currently know. And if you think about this, everyone that has made you laugh, made you smile, given you a salary increase, that you have fallen in love with, has made you happy – whatever – (other than your immediate family) was once a stranger, so there must be some more great people to enhance your life out there.

Your Future Growth

Your future growth potential exists with people you do not yet know. And if you can develop that ability to overcome the fears, the hesitation and build the confidence, the motivation and the skillset to get out and talk to people you don’t know, you would improve your happiness, your life, confidence and your success beyond measure. The world really does become your oyster when you can get out there and start engaging in conversations.

After all, you don’t know if the next person you talk to at that social event, business event, while getting a coffee or the next person you talk to while browsing in a bookshop is going to end up being a future friend, a future customer or client? A future supplier? Who knows?

Until you start talking to people and develop the skill further to fully engage people in conversations with you, you do not know what lies in store for you. You can massively improve your results and your life when you’re able to talk to people easily, freely, and engage them in conversation that can get you results.

Why do some find this easier to do than others?

One of the biggest problems a lot of people have is they worry too much about what other people may think of them. In reality most people have too much going on in their own lives and relationships to be pay too much attention to you and have an opinion on it.

A lot of people believe it is not right to speak to people they don’t know in everyday safe situations and that if they do it might go wrong. They would then be vulnerable to a bad response and not know how they would handle that situation.

People who are confident meeting new people know it is a natural thing to do. In fact it is the people who can talk to anyone, the confident ones, that are less vulnerable in these situations. As I said, everyone in our lives other than our immediate family were once strangers. That means everyone who has made you laugh, you’ve fallen in love with, has given you a job or promotion, even your best friends, were once strangers. So there must be some more good people out there! – I know I said this earlier in the article but it so important it is worth repeating.

So, you’ve started talking to people, what’s next?

Once you start talking to people and you’re engaging them in the conversations, you often want to get them excited about an opportunity you may have, whether that’s a business opportunity or maybe it’s a trip you want to take with friends. You want to be able to lead that conversation and that communication in a way that you’re getting more of the results, more of the time that you’re looking for out of life.

The Solution

This website is dedicated to helping you become a confident communicator in every situation. Through my articles, blog posts, books and training I will teach you the same techniques and methods that I used to finally go from clamming up to opening up around people I don’t know. How I became a conversation starter instead of a shrinking violet.

I have achieved a lot in business, starting and selling my own company. Going from faking a car accident to get out of a 2 minute talk to being a top speaker around the world, I will now speak to a room of 1,000 people for an hour and love every minute of it!

I have been featured in many mainstream publications and magazines.

I am also a mainstream published author of two books – “Think Your Way to Success” and “How to Talk to Absolutely Anyone”, both published by Capstone, Wiley – one of the world’s largest publishers.

The achievement that took me from shy to confident around people I don’t know is the one though that pays me back everyday. I am comfortable around others and can strike up a conversation whenever I want with whoever I want. The important thing is “when I want to” – I am not out there speaking to every stranger that comes my way just because I can. That would be fake and false to them. When a thought comes into my head to say something I do though. I’ve had and continue to have many interactions in a month that enhance my day and the other persons day, experiences I missed out on for years.
