Polished Manners

Making polite conversation doesn't naturally come to everyone but with practice it becomes easier. Engaging in polite conversation is not just about talking, it requires sharp listening skills and tact.⁣

Here are some tips to help you become a good conversationalist.⁣

Good conversation topics include positive comments about the event or occasion you're attending. Asking a non invasive question is also a good way to start a conversation.⁣

Stay away from controversial topics such as religion, politics and money.⁣

🗣⁣
Always try to put the other people at ease. Avoid gossip.⁣
🗣⁣
Involve everyone in the group in conversation.⁣
🗣⁣
Engage in a genuine exchange of information, one sided conversations are not pleasant.⁣
🗣⁣
Show care about and interest in what other people are saying.⁣
🗣⁣
Give and accept compliments gracefully.⁣
🗣⁣
Quickly discern potential tropics of interest to any given group and steer the conversation in that direction.⁣
🗣⁣
Never correct another person's grammar or vocabulary.⁣
🗣⁣
Be sensitive to the feelings of others, are they bored? It might be time to change the topic or move on.⁣

Do you treat yourself well?
How do you look after yourself?
How do you present yourself?
Do you present yourself with courtesy and confidence?
How do you behave in the company of others?

Respect starts with you (self respect), before others can give you respect. Treat yourself well and others will treat you accordingly.

Quite often people say I don't have the patience for this or that, truthfully it is a skill that can be learnt with practice.⁣

"Patience is the ability to tolerate waiting, frustration, or delay without getting agitated or upset"⁣.
Patience allows you to be in control of your emotions.⁣

Being patient shows maturity and wisdom and often helps in making good choices and decisions.⁣
It is a skill so much needed in modern times where everyone is so busy and in a hurry.⁣ Most people want things to happen immediately, no patience for waiting.

"One moment of patience may ward off great disaster. One moment of impatience may ruin a whole life"⁣
Chinese Proverb⁣
