Unexpected Places Its Not So Much Where You Go As What You Bring

If we were to list all the places where you could potentially meet someone interesting, we would fill a wall of books, and still be woefully incomplete. In the final analysis, the place really isn't that important. What does matter is your attitude, your intent, and, to put it simply, who you are.

A pleasant, confident person has a better chance of attracting someone in the dentist's waiting room than a dour person has of dazzling someone at an upscale cocktail party. You've probably heard the saying, "No matter where you go, there you are!" Keep this in mind as you go about your daily tasks. Enter every situation completely seduced by life, and you will draw to yourself people who want to be seduced, as well.

I don't care if you're in the Laundromat washing your underwear, or in the grand ballroom of a four-star hotel toasting foreign dignitaries. Be the fascinated—and therefore, fascinating—person you want to be. If you're standing in line at the movie theater, realize that your place in line is a potentially rich resource for life experiences, not just an inconvenience on the way to an experience.

And when you are seduced by life, other people will be seduced by your very presence. They, too, will forget about the details such as place or schedule, and will seek to absorb the richness of life that you so obviously savor.
