One of the best advice that I ever got was…
“Don’t talk about yourself all the time, you are not that interesting.”
In my quest to discover interesting, intelligent and WISE people, I met a lot of people who only talk about themselves.
And they confirmed that piece of advice I mentioned just now.
These people are usually not that interesting, and they usually don’t realize that all they talk about is themselves.
So I learnt to shut up and listen.
Not just because I’d like to be more interesting, but also because I am listening for real wisdom in others. People who have something that I can learn from.
These people usually don’t talk as much.
You have to listen really intently to hear what they have to say.
