Posted on the 02 September 2016 by Lifecoachbloggers

Building interesting human relationships is an art. You should know what to say and what not to say to people. Instead of being judgemental you focus yourself towards action or action plans. For example, instead of saying, "She loves me because she hugged and kissed me", ask her, "Do you love me", instead of saying, "He is stupid because he is just staring the paper, doing nothing", ask him, "Did you understand the problem, may I know how what approach you are going to take to solve this Math?"


  • He is wearing a decent dress, so he knows how to behave well with others.

  • She doesn't like me because she never makes an eye contact with me.
