Ever notice the people who come out to a party and the whole room takes notice? They’re the life of the party. They know all of the major players in the room PERSONALLY. They enter an event with a sense of PRESENCE and POISE. It may seem like they’re part of a secret club that’s impossible to enter. Or that they might have been born into a situation that gives them a better advantage over your unseemly self. Really though, the rationale behind the difference between them and you is simple – YOU NEED TO BRING SOMETHING TO THE TABLE.
Popularity, success and all the other intangible things that we choose to chase after don’t appear overnight. You’ve gotta put in the work to make yourself memorable. To make yourself important in the lives of others. You need to identify what it is that others need in their lives and supply irt whenever possible.
This is how we build relationships, make impressions on others and get invited to the next one.
Don’t hate the most popular person in the room – be the most popular person in the room!
