Are you afraid to open up to others?
If so, chances are you’re missing out on a whole new world with amazing new people.
Don’t believe me?
Just ask Stage Republic, the Netherlands-based musician who got to work with one of the best in the biz just by starting a conversation in a restaurant.
“In July of this year, I got into a conversation with the couple sitting next to us in a New York steak restaurant.”
STEP 1: Talk to someone
You can’t open up if you don’t speak. Go ahead and just try complimenting the person next to you in the elevator tomorrow. #elevatorchallenge
STEP 2: Be authentically you
People tend to find out pretty quickly when you’re faking it. Don’t feed them a bunch of bullshit. Instead, be yourself – vulnerably and powerfully – and you will be amazed at the responses you get.
STEP 3: Enjoy your new friend(s)
The ending of Stage Republic’s story reads like a parable to those who are ready to step into openness:
“Only when I had returned to my hotel I found out that the great guy I had been talking to was legendary engineer & record producer Jay Messina (Aerosmith/Supertramp/KISS/Miles Davis). Four months later I am proud to present you our new track, Frailty. Written and recorded in our home country, The Netherlands, mastered by Jay at his West End Sound Studio in New York.”
