I remember when I was a kid, I was digging around in the backyard. Imagine my surprise when I found a turtle.
I didn’t even know we had turtles. But I guess my parents had bought a couple, or received a couple as a gift (I don’t remember the exact story, I was pretty young), and the turtles went ahead and buried themselves.
There was that story in the news a couple days ago about a couple doing some renovations in their home, when they uncovered some artifacts that predated biblical times.
People are the same way. On the surface, they seem to be your normal, run of the mill folks.
But dig down just a bit below the surface, and you’ll find some incredible treasure. You’d be surprised some of the ideas and dreams some of even your closest friends have, but are a bit nervous or not so outgoing when it comes to sharing them.
But dig for them, and you’ll find them.
If you’ve ever dug for treasure as a kid, you know that half the fun (or most of the fun) is not in the finding, but in the digging. Just imagining what you’re going to find. Using your wonderful creativity to conjure up amazing secrets that are just below the surface.
Digging for treasure in people is the same way. The fun is not in the finding, but in the looking.
Using your conversational skills to slowly peel back the onion layers a bit deeper and deeper.
Each time you reveal more of yourself to each other, you develop a deeper sense of rapport, and that wonderful connection that the best relationships are made of.
The amazing part of human life is that every single person you meet is filled with potential treasure.
Both kinds of treasure.
The looking kind, and the finding kind.
To find the most treasure, you’ll need to develop some powerful communication skills. You’ll find it’s very easy to develop self confidence once you go through this assertive communication course that will program assertiveness into you on a deep and unconscious level.
