Imagine you have the opportunity to hang with Tony Robbins for 3 days in Fiji, go to a luncheon with the Dali Lama, and have a meet and greet with Bill Clinton all in the same month for free. And you don’t hesitate to say NO to all 3 “opportunities”
We recognize those names because of what these great men have created in their lives. Napoleon Hill called it “Definiteness of Purpose”. When you are so focused on your mission everything else will seem meaningless. Gary Keller calls it “The One Thing” (great book).
Know what you want to create and learn how to politely say no to everything else…and everyone else.
The month I had these 3 invitations I said NO…I also received 68 additional lunch invites with folks asking for some version of “picking my brain”. Some were offended and there persistence only lead me to never want to meet them.
I’m focused on developing my coaching business lately and so I reached out to 4 coaches last week who charge 50-100k per client. I’m extremely interested in how they attract that level of client. —-All 4 offered to help me—-I did not ask. I approached each of them with the same level of respect I would give the President. And they responded. I never once asked them for anything… not even to meet because I realize how valuable their time is….
Realize anyone with whom you want to meet…lots of other people probably want to meet as well. Successful people have a clear outcome for everything they do…. They’re definite in their purpose.. This is why they are so successful..This is why we admire them….They are not easily distracted. If you are a stranger and have nothing to add to their mission or purpose… then you by definition are a distraction.
If you are trying to connect with some one be clear, intentional, and polite. Add value first.
But, in reality the only real way to Connect with these folks is this: Be so mission based and definite yourself that you don’t even want to meet them… because you are so busy making things happen. Then they will notice what you are creating in the world…and they will be asking to meet with you.
The more clear and focused you are on your mission …the more people opportunities..and yes even distractions will show up in your life… You will get to choose where you spend your time. And naturally you will only want to spend your time with others who are up to big things in the world… Like attracts like… get there and you will automatically be in rapport with your heroes.
