Like most people I have a core set of friends. Those that I’ve known for many years, and some for only a few years. They all have one thing in common. At one point in time I didn’t know them!
Obvious I know, but think about it for a moment. If you are invited to a dinner party or other social event or maybe even a work get together and you know that most of the people present will be strangers to you – it puts you off doesn’t it? OK, some of you are saying ‘No, I love that.’ Well this guide today isn’t for you, it’s for those out there who are happy staying in the comfort and company of familiar friendly faces.
Try to imagine that one of the people you meet today will end up being one of your ‘best’ friends ever. How great is it to have best friends? It’s great, friends that really ‘get’ who you are and in who’s company you can ‘be’ who you really are. Imagine that one of the people you meet today will be one of those friends and you will have a sense of excitement and anticipation. You won’t be able to wait to get out and meet new people.
