Power Affirmations for Connecting with the Affluent
Here are 30 affirmations I believe in after studying the book “Networking with the Affluent” by Dr. Thomas Stanley. Despite the fact that the book is targeted to sales people, I believe that it is to everyone’s benefit to network– specifically to network with successful people. If effective individuals are favorably impressed with you and decide to work with you, then you can achieve almost anything– certainly with respect to satisfying your very own requirements and helping other individuals.
As with many jobs in life, success in networking starts with the proper state of mind. The right mindset. When individuals fail at networking, it is typically the outcome of 2 things:
They approach the contact with an unconsciously selfish mindset. They desire time with the possibility to reveal their product and services so that they can make a sale. While they might declare (and encourage themselves) that they are actually working in the best interest of the prospect, their interest just reaches how their item can assist met a prospects need. What they are really saying is “I’m happy to help you, however only if completion outcome is that you buy my item.” This is generally an unconscious thought procedure.
This is one factor that affirmations can be extremely reliable in eliminating this issue. Affirmations can condition your mind so that you are constantly conscious exactly what the other person requirements. If you are actually effective in helping others meet their requirements (even when they have nothing to do with your services or product), then the chances are much greater that they will ultimately not just buy your service or product, but refer others who likewise need your services.
Here’s a tip: the greatest requirement and issue of a lot of business owners, is increasing their profits. Discover methods to improve their income, and possibly they will help you boost yours.
Not networking tactically. Unsuccessful networkers, are a “master of the ones.” They have one or two contacts in a great deal of affinity groups. There’s no concentration of power. The majority of the time, they do not even understand what affinity groups their contacts belong to. Successful networkers network in clusters. They target the leaders of networks. They utilize tools of mass interaction to reach large blocks of prospective contacts– especially, releasing short articles and offering speeches/seminars. Obviously these articles and speeches cover subjects that are considered crucial to my target market. These tools permit me to help multiple members of their network in a brief period of time and establish themselves as specialists in their specific field.
Here are a number of affirmations I believe will make me a better person and leader to my team as a result of reading Thomas Stanley’s book:
