As a token of my birthday 24th August 2022 I ask “WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH THE PEOPLE IN YOUR CIRCLE?”
Tim Sanders captured it all when he said “Your Network is your net worth”.
Some of us have very promising potential but we need to be in the right environment/circle to unlock our potentials fully. How then do you want to maximize opportunities provided by the right network of people if you don’t even make effort to have those same people around you?
One can not know it all. This is why you meet and interact with People who help to develop and improve your skill set.
When you are on that task and it begins to look difficult; do you have anyone you reach out for guidance?
Networking uncovers opportunities to connect with different Mentors, business partners and experts in different fields.
It is easier to land a job faster because your employer might be in your circle or know someone in your circle.
Remember to be valuable as well to the people you share same circle with. Let them also benefit from you even if it is not in same measure as you receive.
You build your network. You don’t stumble on it.
People want to be associated with success.
They don’t care about your process but your finished product and who you become at the end. They don’t care about what you are doing to get there, don’t be deceived.
Why do you think successful people have a lot of followership? Where do you think the people associating themselves to them are coming from?
These same people have been there, seeing your struggles and all. They won’t say much, they might not even acknowledge you but they are watching. The moment you you attain one successful height you will see them showing solidarity, telling you how proud they are of you.
What does this mean?
The earlier you realize that you don’t need validation from people as you are undergoing the process for your success, the better for you. Focus on attaining that height, your eyes should be on the goal!
