Do you ever go to a social event and watch people? I mean just watch how they interact with each other. You pretty much see two types of people.
There are those that are “people magnets” and then there are those that are “people repellants”. Of course, as network marketers, we want to get to the status of become people magnets. But how?
One of the things that your average person lacks is the fact that we don’t take responsibility for the relationships in our lives. What I mean by this is we want people to approach us by “an act of nature”.
In general a lot of us don’t initiate a relationship at all. According to John C. Maxwell, in order for you to have a solid relationship that brings fulfillment, you have to change your mindset when it comes to dealing with others.
Here are four ways he came up that will help you:
PLACE A HIGH VALUE ON PEOPLE
You want to expect the best out of people. Assume that their motives are good unless they prove otherwise. Give them your friendship rather asking for theirs.
LEARN TO UNDERSTAND PEOPLE
Listen to people. The best conversations are the ones about the other persons. Keep in mind the following truth’s about people:
- People are insecure……give them confidence.
– People want to feel special……sincerely compliment them
– People desire a better tomorrow……show them hope
– People are selfish….speak to their needs first
– People get emotionally low….encourage them
– People want to be assicated with success…..help them win
GIVE RESPECT FREELY BUT EXPECT TO EARN IT FROM OTHERS
Give respect to others, but this doesn’t give you the right to demand it in return. You have to earn it. If you respect yourself, respect others, and exhibit competance, others will almost always give you respect.
COMMIT YOURSELF TO ADDING VALUE TO OTHERS
“Carve your name on hearts and not on marble” – Charles Spurgeon
The best way to do this is to add value by:
- Looking for ability in others
– Helping others discover their ability
– Helping others develop their ability
If you want to make relationships a priority, you must check your motives to be sure you are not trying to manipulate others for your own gain.
