Today's life tip is #3 in my 10 part series on how to improve your life and career from Brian Tracy. Number 3 is contacts. Always be networking, always be increasing your contacts. Because your success is going to be directly related to the number of people who know and like you. So ask people questions. Here's a great one, when networking, ask people, "What would I need to know about you and your business to recommend you to my friends?" Who is not going to want to answer that question? And they're going to like you right away because people love it when you're interested in them and you're interested in their business. And they're going to talk to you about their passion and they are going to be interesting to you. So it's not going to be hard. My friend Kent Georgi talks about friendships as being golden nuggets. Every time you meet someone and you do something kind, you're interested in them, you make a friend, that's a golden nugget. And you take those nuggets and you put them in a bag. And then later, when you have a project, when you need help, you need support, you have a bag of gold that you can reach into and you can pull out of! Someone to help you, to partner with you, to support you, there's all kinds of people in there. Always be networking, always be increasing your contacts. And it's easy to do by simply being interested in other people. For a 30 minute complimentary coaching session, go to my website and request it on the contact me page. And always remember, YOU ARE POWERFUL!
