“The way you do something, is the same way you do everything else.”

I’ve been an addict of networking for a couple of months since I discovered the related benefits for my business.
However, what happens in networking events is very fascinating. People present their best selves. Most dress well; have business cards to show off what they do, and attempt to speak to everyone in the group. What most don’t do is comprehend and utilize the first law of human nature–which is; “People don’t do what they don’t see a benefit in doing.” It is about the “What is in it for me” ideology. With that in mind, people tend to talk more about themselves and what they do, or how they can help others without really trying to find out about others: what makes them unique; what makes them feel special; or what makes them feel important. In summary, they don’t show interest in other people. Dale Carnegie in his book- “How to influence people and win friends” indicates that the best way to elicit other people’s interest is to show interest in them.
Below are first three steps that will help you benefit from business networking.
1. Show up feeling, and looking vibrant.
This means that you dress to influence, and express who you are, and your brand. This also implies that you find a way to dress up in colors that resonate with your product / service or company brand. Cleanse your mind of all negativity and self-criticism, and adopt a positive and happy attitude.
2. Carry enough business cards to give away.
Do not discriminate who you should give your business cards to. When you are giving out your business cards, ensure to connect to everyone one you give the cards to. Show keen interest in what they are doing by listening to what they have to say, and then share your business card.
3. Ask for their business cards before they offer them.
Don’t wait for them to hand them to you. That is a mind game that illustrates that you are interested in what they have to offer.

Before I learnt about the true meaning and implications of self sabotage, I always considered it an attitude of the weak, and negative minded. Little did I know then, that self-sabotage logs in almost everyone’s unconscious mind, especially those who have gone through unpleasant situations in their lives. This self sabotage awaits to block the host’s success whenever opportunities present themselves.
Self sabotage is therefore not to be ignored. It is like a vampire that sucks onto one’s enthusiasm to change his/her situation, and feeds into procrastination, laziness and “excuses manufacturing.” I call it “excuses manufacturing” because I have related to some of the most determined self ‘sabotagers’ in this world. Believe me; they certainly manufacture excuses profoundly and instantaneously.
A friend of mine was laid off a couple of years back, and to date he is still unemployed. Moreover, he is highly educated, energetic and a prayer warrior. I tell you, when this guy starts praying, you will think that God is in the room listening. If his prayers were directives, he would be in Donald Trump’s social class. However, surprisingly, he remains financially handicapped, and everything in his life continues to fall apart. It came to a point when he could neither feed himself, nor pay his bills. Then the eviction notice came in. He was taken to court, and in time, became homeless. What is ironic is that he had a loving family in Florida who had encouraged him for months to move back. They promised to take care of him, and also find him a job. But he didn’t want to leave Los Angeles because “he had friends here.” Sadly when he found himself homeless, none of his “friends” came to his rescue.
I also attempted to connect several job opportunities for him, but he always found reasons; “It is too far; I hate driving on the freeway; I don’t like the name of the company you are trying to connect me to; I can’t do that job; it is too cheap; I am not comfortable with doing the job.” Indeed, he was the “reasons man.”
This is but one of the examples that exemplify the traits of a self sabotager.
Do you self sabotage yourself? Don’t answer that. Rather, for the next couple of days, evaluate the things you have been putting off, and examine the reasons you have for not pursuing these things. More still, examine your fears. Find out if they are valid. Begin focusing on yourself and look out for the excuses you give for not pursuing certain things. Also, are you where you wanna be in life? If not, then find out the part you have played in creating your current reality.
