“Being a highlighter is about constantly searching for the good in people. When you tell people they are good, they become better. When you search for what’s good, you feel great.”
Vanessa Van Edwards, Captivate: The Science of Succeeding with People

“When you try to be the same as everyone else, it’s boring. When you try to fit into a mold, you become forgettable. When you try to be “normal,” you become dull. Just be yourself, because no one is like you. If you’re a little weird, own it. The right people will like you for it.”
Vanessa Van Edwards, Captivate: The Science of Succeeding with People

“Next to physical survival, the greatest need of a human being is psychological survival—to be understood, to be affirmed, to be validated, to be appreciated. —Stephen Covey”
Vanessa Van Edwards, Captivate: The Science of Succeeding with People
