When I came back from Australia, I had NOTHING in common with anyone in Las Vegas. Yes, that mass of desert with a population shy of two million – all of whom never travel abroad. I remember I was at a bar and this girl ranted, “America is the greatest country in the world!” After hearing such lunacy, especially after living in gorgeous Melbourne and Sydney, Australia, I was appalled by that comment. Both her and I not only had ZERO things in common, but someone else named Steven agreed with her, too. Oh, who’s Steven? My blood brother.
And with that being said, some of the most awkward conversations came when I spoke with Las Vegans because they seriously believe the world revolves around America. Everyone seemed uninteresting to me because in American society, you get seven days paid vacation every year. OUCH! No wonder why they don’t know where Denmark is! Not taking shots at Americans, but some of them have mindsets such as what I see here in Thailand.
Anyways, what’s the first thing you can do to become a more interesting character?
I’m not saying save 3k$ a travel to Japan for a week. No, no, and no. You have the Central Americas and literally South America in your neck of the woods. I’m not saying go transpacific or transatlantic. Get your feet wet by checking out what’s next door before going to the other side of town. This will increase your ability to create conversations with strangers, let alone you’ll be able to add things to conversations, too.
Expand Your Knowledge
The more you know, the more attractive you become. No, I’m not talking about the ‘circle of concern’ such as monotonous politics and controversial topics such as religion and Trump; I’m talking about what are you reading. What are you doing with your life and more importantly…what are you feeding your mind? Are you working at your local grocer or are you an entrepreneur in and Asian country, teaching while managing your own website, podcast, and writing a book? See, what looks sexier?
Improving Your Personality
You are who your five closest friends are. If you’re not happy about who you are or what you represent, it’s time to do something about your circle. How can you go about improving your personality? Well, the world is your oyster. Napoleon Hill said you knew a man who picked out different qualities and attributes from Abraham Lincoln and four other prominent figures at the dusk of the 1800’s. He would go onto visualize being that person. And you know what? It happened. Who’s personality do you admire the most? Start figuring out what they do with their lives in terms of daily routines and adopt a system that’s suitable for you!
