How to Meet People When You’re Out and About

Today, I’m going to help you with an inner-game technique that will help you meet people when you’re “out and about.”

Now, one of the problems with going out to malls or other places to meet people is that Network-Marketers tend to have a little bit stalker-ish quality.

If you’re going to go out and meet people at a coffee shop or at a bank, or the playground with your kids and you’re trying to meet new people, there’s a very interesting vibration that you can start to carry while you’re out and about doing that.

One of the things that turns people off is when the Network-Marketer or Direct Seller gets in this mode of “I’ve got to get something from that person” but let’s face it…

To build a business you need that person’s name and number, or their contact information and you need to get into a conversation with them so that they’ll respond to you and you’ll be able to get that info.

So, I’m going to give you a tip on how to shift to a cleaner vibration.

I believe that if you want to prospect people, you’ve got to be authentic, because people respond to authenticity.

I don’t want people to feel like you’re trying to get them, I don’t want people to feel like you’re sharpening your claws and asking them questions just to get their name and number. 

So I’m going to give you what I call an “Inner Game Story” to help shift your vibration. 

I want you to think about doing something FOR the prospect that you meet.

I know that your goal is to get a name and number, I get that, but I want you to shift that, and when you go out to prospect or live your life, when you go out to shop with your family or you’re with your kids, can I make a recommendation?

I recommend that you say to yourself, “I’m going to see how I can do things for other people.”

Now what do I mean by that?

Well there’s lots of things you can do for people, you can smile at them, you can look at them warmly, you can make a nice compliment or a nice comment about the way that they’re dressed, or a comment about their family or something you notice about them, about their car or a piece of jewelry they’re wearing.

Maybe you just notice that they give you great service and say “Hey, great job today, your service was amazing.”

I’m always complimenting stewardesses on planes and they end up paying more attention to me and it makes my flights better. I always try to give back to people who are serving me, and I try to brighten up their day with a smile or a compliment or a comment.

So my recommendation to you, is that when you're out and about, to make sure you can come from a truly authentic place, is to be looking for what you can GIVE instead of what you can TAKE.

This is really important, and it will make things a lot more fun for you.

Because when you’re in that mode that “you’ve got to go out and get somebody’s info and you need people on your list,” it becomes a selfish kind of thing.

So, I want to help you shift that vibration and to look at it as you’re going out to brighten up somebody’s life.

Did you know that just authentically listening to someone or giving them a nice smile or a nice compliment, can literally change the course of their day, their  whole week or their whole month?

If you take the time to do something for them and just make a nice gesture, you’ll be amazed at how people will start to respond to you and how you can start to get into conversations with them.

If you want to shift your vibration from an energy of “What am I trying to get?” to “What am I trying to give,” start looking at your prospects as people you want to give to…

…people you can help…

…people you can acknowledge…

…and people you can compliment.

Certainly the world needs more nice people saying nice things to them and smiling at them. You’ll feel a lot better, and you’ll have more success in your prospecting.
