This question creates opportunity for people to help. – When a friend is going through challenges you can ask questions such as, ‘why is this’ or ‘what happened’. This helps you to get to the root of the problem. – When in a shop and the attendant is refusing to reduce the price, ask, ‘why are you making this so difficult?’ This is bound to get you the results you want. – You want to go out with your friend but he backs off at the last minute. You should tell him, ‘the old Steve would have agreed to go out’. This will make him think twice. If you hear phrases that you like, write them down for future use.
