How do you connect with others, do you connect well, are you at ease, do you have an instant opinion ?
When we venture out into the world of business, whether it be for ourselves or for others, we or they all want the same result, an increase in whatever you are doing, some of us fail and some of us are highly successful, do you ever wonder why, are they better sales people than you are, is their marketing tactic better, or could it just be that they are really nice people and take an interest in their clients, and actually work on the good old-fashioned public relations…………… Personally I feel that there is nothing worse than just being a number ! and on top of it being made to feel like a number, the world moves very fast today, but some things should never change and one of them should be how we connect, do you really connect to a machine that is asking you to press 1, 2, 3 etc., for your correct answer ?
When you build connections with people you are then able to build your business and it is the same with friends, you need to connect in the correct form for friendships to grow, even families need to connect to build and grow, all these things are connecting in different ways, business,friends,family but it is a connection, that if it is not right will never prosper, good brings good, by giving out what you want you attract it back, when you show interest in something, someone they will show interest towards you.
We also need to use connections when we deal with other cultures, we need to connect to understand the differences we have socially and on a cultural basis, each culture and country has its own ways, and if we do not take the trouble to connect well, we may very well misunderstand them and vice a versa. On a business level it is most important to understand the un written rules, it could be the difference between a lost client or a very successful connection. We all wish to be understood and respected, this is all possible due to a correct and good connection.
With everything we have today to help us in the technology department, they are not us, and cannot reflect a personality or any human traits except being perfect in answering questions and emails,let the technology in,but never let it take your place, it can’t. Remember I always tell you, you are unique, and if it does make a mistake, it cannot apologise like you would…………………think about it, if you wish to build your business, your social life or improve your family life, give something of yourself, connect, connect and keep connecting to get the results you really want.
“The more social media we have, the more we think we are connecting, yet we are really disconnecting from each other “
Take the time to connect ! It’s a human function and it really is good for you and those around you………………………..
