Have you tried making yourself more interesting? Ah ha! This post made me realize how I gravitate towards people who are curious and have a desire to know. They tend to practice a particular activity or volunteer in their communities or read. I think it also has to do with that overused word passion. I really do admire that in others.
Work on being an interesting person other people want to be around and are willing to open door for…. There are many roads to becoming an interesting person, but they all involve developing your curiosity and your desire to know and understand — yourself, others, the world around you. You can read. You can pursue a new activity like knitting or rock climbing. You can volunteer. You can commit to asking three people a day an open-ended question about themselves and really listening to their responses. You can share your information and connections freely.
