I was scanning through the recently returned pile of books, of the local library, when I saw Talking The Winner’s Way, 92 Little Tricks For Big Success In Business And Personal Relationships. Seeing Leil Lowndes name on it, I quickly grabbed the book. She is one of my favorite authors. Life experiences coupled with an amazing sense of humor and magnetic headlines, she manages to get her advice across effortlessly.
I turned to the first page and was smitten by what I read
My Favorite Excerpt
Have you every admired those successful people who seem to have it all? You see them chatting confidently at business meetings, comfortably at social parties. They’re the ones with the best jobs, the nicest spouses, the coolest friends, the biggest bank accounts, the most fashionable zip codes.
But wait a minute! A lot of them aren’t smarter than you. There're not more educated than you. There're not even better looking! So what is it? (Some people suspect they inherited it. Others say they married, or were just plain lucky. Tell them to think again.) What it boils down to is their more skillful way of dealing with fellow human beings.
You see, nobody gets to the top alone. Over the years, people who seem to "have it all" have captured the hearts and conquered the minds of hundreds of others who helped boost them, rung by rung, to the top of whatever corporate or social ladder they chose.
Browsing Through Talking The Winner’s Way, 92 Little Tricks For Big Success In Business And Personal RelationshipsEven though I write a bit about all chapters as part of my book reviews, this time, it is not at all practical to do so. In its entity, the book has 92 chapters! As the title suggests, each trick is one chapter.
OverallThis is a pretty valuable book for the socially awkward person or really anyone who just wants to improve their social life a little bit.
I found that most of the tricks could be applicable to my life and that many were simple ones that I could use right away.
Some tricks take more effort and consciousness to remember and implement but I suppose nothing worthwhile is easy!
I thoroughly recommend it to anybody who wants to communicate more effectively. This book could turn any shy person into the center and life of a party. Leil Lowndes gives great tips, and her life experiences to go along with those tips.
Having said, don’t let the tricks turn you into a self-centered and manipulative person. Have the best interest at heart and try to be as genuine as possible. People will detect if you are trying to be phony and these very tricks may backfire on you!
