If you truly want to impress others, seek to impress them with who they are, rather than with who you are. Work to genuinely bring out the best in others, and they’ll certainly see the best in you.
The strongest leaders do not command, they empower. The most effective teachers do not impose their knowledge, they infect students with passion for learning. The most successful salespeople do not trick their customers into buying, they seek to understand and fulfill the true needs of those customers.
Think of the people who impress you the most, and you’ll see that they’re the ones who are able to touch something real and genuine within you.
