2. Let go of small talk

When people ask you how you are doing or how your day was, replace your quick go-to answer with an authentic response. One that is honest.

Even if the person you are conversing with is not a close friend or a close co-worker, answering honestly makes room for a meaningful bond to begin to occur. The art of having a meaningful conversation is quickly becoming lost in today’s social media addicted world.

Letting go of small talk, even with strangers, can bring more meaning in your day, your life and your relationships. When you open up authentically, your greatness starts to pour out. Ted has a great playlist of Ted Talks on the art of meaningful conversation.

These two simple tweaks in your day-to-day life can open room for your greatness to come through at work, in your personal life and in your relationships.
