Pick a worthwhile target!
Never waste time on a moving target or with someone who comes across as over agressive and pushy.
Want greater impact when networking? Focus on helping others. An attitude of “giving’ is one of the most important keys to networking. Spend more time listening than talking. That will help make you more efficient.
Mental preparation is the first and most important step in being successful in networking. The reason for this is because you will need to face your fears and get beyond your fears and the fears that other people try to give you. A healthy attitude toward business networking helps build trust and makes you more “attractive” to other people.
Never underestimate the advantage of surrounding yourself with successful people in networking. Always remember, “success breeds success.” You will learn much more from success people than people who are not doing so hot. You might do well to pay less attention to the latter.
“When you are on a roll you tend to be more successful. Why is that? When you are successful it is likely that you are doing the right things. And when you are rewarded with success you will tend to continue doing the right things. If what you are doing is working you will probably stick with it.” ~ George Torok, Professional Speaker
Do whatever you have to do to keep your confidence up and your spirits high. Consistently energize your networking attitude. If you are down. . . don’t stay there, and if you are not at your best, you probably would be better off by staying home rather than screw up at a networking event. First impressions can mean everything. Go for a walk. Get some fresh air. Listen to your iPod and make sure it’s music that gives you a lift.
Networking success does not automatically result from attendance at a business networking event. You will only get the desired results when you approach it with the right attitude. Living life with a great attitude changes everything! Always give your best show to everything you do.
