Over the last couple years, taking a cue from my friend and mentor, Lewis Howes, I’ve made it my own personal mission to connect as many people as possible. Once you see that it’s a gift to connect two people who need each other – it’s a no-brainer.
So how do you go about connecting people? First off, when you meet new people or even when you’re talking to an old friend, get present and LISTEN! I know it sounds simple, but by really tuning in and learning what their goals are or what they’re passionate about, you’re able to connect them with others who have an expertise in an area they need help with or maybe they know someone who does.
I’ve started making mental notes of everyone I talk to and lately, I’m able to connect them to someone else who can help them immediately. And it feels amazing! Not only do I get to have a hand in the magic, but often times the favor is returned down the road.
“The more people you can help with their dreams, the more they’ll help with yours.”
Of course, this isn’t the driving reason to do this, but it is incredible what happens when you find the right people, your tribe, to accelerate your journey or find shortcuts. And we all know how hard it can be to find the “right” people.
With 2018 just around the corner, I challenge you to make an intention to ask what people are up to and connect more people. Make it your new addiction to become an ultimate connector. Are you in?
