Do you know someone who has no self…

Do you know someone who has no self-confidence? Here’s how to help them feel good about themselves and gain confidence in their own problem-solving skills:

1. Call them up constantly complaining about all kinds of (non-existent) problems that you are dealing with.
2. Ask for their advice
3. Call them back a day or two later and tell them how great it all worked out for you.

If their advice is REALLY bad, though, you don’t want them using it themselves, so make sure to let them know of some “small” ways in which you “adjusted” their advice to really make it work. Hopefully, they will then take YOUR advice all the while thinking they are following their own.

Before you know it, your friend/acquaintance will be brimming with self-confidence and will stop calling YOU for constant advice!
