First Make Him Your Friend

First Make Him Your Friend

“If you wish to win a man over to your ideas, first make him your friend.” – Abraham Lincoln

This quote teaches us a great lesson about building a successful networking . It is common in human nature for us to resist when others try to tell us what we will think, feel or do. We resist when we feel pressured or manipulated. So, my for you today is to just be patient.

Bob Schmidt always said, “People are open to others who take a genuine and sincere interest in them.” Of course they do, it is how we are wired. We like to be cared about. Your business will begin to take off like you have never seen before when you decide to make the person and not the sale your focus. Learn how to be sincerely interested in those you meet and those with whom you interact. They will feel it and be much more likely to listen to your “ideas” about an opportunity.

Put it to the test and see for yourself.
