July of 2015, my wife and I traveled across the border to Canada for the first time. Being more local than our usual destinations we had no idea what to expect, but were pleasantly surprised with how much Quebec City felt and looked like a quaint European town. That's where we found this tunnel that led to a nearby restaurant and thought how inviting it seemed.
How we present ourselves goes a long way in how others see us. Like the restaurant, it may have the best food in the area, but if potential patrons don't feel welcomed then they'll never try it out.
Just because you may be brilliant at what you do, or even just put in a lot of work to accomplish your goals doesn't mean others will automatically gravitate towards you. Being open and welcoming creates that balance we need to fully socialize, and it starts with the invitation.
