When you first meet someone, what do they notice about you?
Beyond how you look.
They don’t see your education.
They don't see how hard you’ve worked.
They can't tell how funny and nice you are behind closed doors.
All they know is how you make them feel in the first few seconds of meeting them. And if you don't make them feel good, they're probably already thinking about how to gracefully and quickly move on. Tough, but true.
If your social skills aren’t where you want them to be, it can be tough to live a truly Rich Life.
That’s why in this Ultimate Guide, I’m going to show you how to quickly and easily improve your social skills. You'll learn how to use the power of body language and charisma to create lasting connections with people.
The next time you’re out at a bar, a wedding, or an event, you'll be able to confidently approach new people and always know exactly what to say.
No more being forgettable. No more feeling like a wallflower. And definitely no more awkwardness.
I’ve spent years studying, testing, and refining the best strategies for improving these skills — and I'm going to walk you through how you can improve your social skills in this guide.
Hi, I'm Ramit Sethi. I'm the New York Times bestselling author of the book, I Will Teach You To Be Rich.
I've helped millions of readers live a Rich Life using psychology, tough love, and tested, step-by-step systems that work in the real world.
I used to be socially awkward.
I would say all the wrong things at exactly the wrong times. Everyone would just stare at me in silence, and I'd burn with embarrassment.
I avoided working on this problem for years because, after all, I was doing just fine. Other than the occasional uncomfortable moment, what was the rush to improve? What were the real consequences of not being socially skilled?
But I realized that’s exactly the point: things were just FINE.
Just like you can get fat by eating poorly for decades, you can actually do just FINE going through life without connecting with the people around you.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
Over time, I’ve learned how to improve my social skills and shown thousands of my students how to do the same.
Today, I’m much more confident and charismatic. And even though I’m nowhere near perfect, I’ve given speeches in front of thousands of people and been on national TV. Yes, I said National TV!
For a guy that used to fumble his way through saying "Hi" to someone new, that’s a huge change.
You can make these same changes. And I want to teach you how because your ability to connect with the people around you is the single greatest competitive advantage you can get.
A Rich Life isn’t just about improving what’s on the inside — it’s just as important to control what people think when they meet you.
Your ability to connect with the people around you is the single greatest competitive advantage you can get.Tweet this
