How do you achieve the mindset shift? For starters, we’ve all heard that you are the sum of the five people you hang out with most. Barriers and challenges we face don’t need to be faced with alone. Surround yourself around people that build you up and mutually exchange in positive affirmations with each other. Hal Elrod’s, “Miracle Morning” is a great way to prime your mind for positive thinking. Many times it’s the worry that builds up inside of us that prevents us from action. Yet, how many times has your greatest happiness come from a result of doing something outside your comfort zone. Intentionally select people to help raise your desired value. Once, you see yourself with 100% confidence in who you are and what you have to value, you will flip the switch from mediocre to exemplarily.
2. Influencers – Seek out master communicators! It’s not about what you know but who you know. Prior to networking do your homework! Acquire a list of attendees and email them in advance. Reach out to the host and key players to help introduce you to who you want to meet. Influencers want to help you because it makes them look good and boost their social value when they introduce new people to their contacts.
