The quality of people you surround yourself with is one of the biggest influences on your behavior, your results, your wealth, and eventually, on your entire reality and life itself.
There’s a crucial distinction between networking and connecting. On its own, networking is surface level. It is simply the introduction of a connection, but that alone is not enough. It’s one thing to exchange cards or a few emails with others. It’s quite another to powerfully connect with them.
Connecting is an invitation to form a non-surface relationship, a win-win relationship that will be mutually beneficial to both parties and allow them to elevate each other. It’s the difference between just meeting someone and actually getting to know someone, such as what is important to them, what they want to achieve, who they truly are, etc.
In many ways, connecting is an art because it requires not only skill, confidence, and the right mindset but also vulnerability, ingenuity, and compassion. With this in mind, let's look at one of the most important aspects to connection and deeper relationships: the ability to add value first.
