I was running a confidence workshop in Lisbon back in 2017. One of our students had a life-changing moment.
We challenged Daniel to talk to a stranger and apply the techniques I teach in The Charismatic Nerd.
In just 10 minutes, his conversation with a random girl in the street went from Hello, to crying, to a tear-filled hug.
This girl felt so comfortable with James that she opened up to him about an abortion she once had.
He listened, reacted authentically, and genuinely connected with this person he’d just met — no longer a stranger.
Then she thanked him and they parted ways, both smiling.
James had never experienced anything like it. He didn’t know you could talk to people in this way, and what he learned changed his life forever.
