Basics Team Event at BAC
Relationships are like plants in a garden.
They require nourishment and tender care.
You will not want to maintain a relationship with everyone you meet.
But when you meet someone with whom you share a common interest, or for whom you have an intellectual or emotional attraction, you will want to keep in touch.
Take the initiative.
Make a commitment to communicate with the other person, always with the thought of giving.
Periodically arrange to meet face-to-face.
As you become more valuable and memorable to the other person, they will include you in their network.
Most people think about who they would like to meet or get to know.
Flip that around.
Think about what you can do that would make people want to know you.
In other words, become “famous” in your own niche.
Not Hollywood star famous.
Just known and respected – an “influencer.”
It’s not as difficult as you might think.
You could join a trade association and take an active role.
Or share your expertise through public speaking at trade or business groups.
You could write articles and have them published in trade journals in your field.
Or get your name in print by being interviewed.
You could cultivate your email list and start a blog.
Or become a guest blogger on someone else’s site.
When you are well known, people will seek you out.
And the more people who seek you out, the more opportunities you have to connect and build relationships.
Just remember the cardinal rule: Be the first to provide value and offer help.
We are all allotted 24 hours a day.
How we manage those 24 hours determines the quality of our lives.
It’s the best kept secret of the wealthy.
Mastery of the skills needed to achieve success takes time.
And you can’t save up time to use later.
That’s called procrastination.
Procrastination robs you of your dreams.
Whenever you begin a task, ask “Is this the best use of my time?”
Also ask, “Is this on the path to my goals?”
Ask these questions of yourself throughout the day.
It’s easy to slip into doing pleasant activities of little consequence.
Chatting, texting, going for coffee and surfing the web may offer enjoyment.
But they’re like treading water.
They won’t take you in the direction of success.
Tracking every action
Pick an area in your life that you want major improvement. (example – financial, weight gain or loss, new job or career, spiritual, education, relationships, fitness level, etc,)
Carry around your personal “tracking book”
Track every action involved in your to be improved areaWrite it down, everyday, no exceptions no excuses for 30 days
You can’t manage what you can’t measure
What are you going to track?
