Today’s question comes from one of my readers who can’t seem to find a positive social circle to spend time with.
It’s unfair really; you’re never given a handbook to teach you how to make friends, and especially not how to deal with the opposite sex.
In addition to feeling isolated at his job, he doesn’t have the friends he once had in high school, and worst of all he’s striking out with women!
He has good intentions but he’s going about it all wrong.
He’s spending time in the wrong places and not allowing himself to establish genuine connections with people who will bring meaning to his life.
I’m not going to pretend I wrote the handbook to picking up girls or being Mr. Popular – in high school, I quit football to sign musical theatre – but I have learned some things over the past 10 years while playing poker and traveling the world.
For 7 years of my career, starting when I was 18 I would travel alone to various countries. This forced me to step outside my comfort zone, meet new people and kindle relationships.
Poker has helped immensely as well. Secondary to being a good card player, the most important skill for one’s success is their ability to deal with people at the table. And since poker is played with all types of personalities from all walks of life, social interaction are a skillset one inevitably acquires.
While I may not be your guru, I’d have been an idiot not to learn something. And that’s what I’m sharing with you today; the best way to attract the people in your life who will bring you joy, meaning and love.
Do you have meaningful relationships in your life? What fears are holding you back from starting new relationships?
