3 Secrets to the Power of Gratitude: Opens Doors that Nothing Else Can
Secret 1: Be Grateful
Rather than dreading whether you will connect with someone, walk in with an attitude of gratefulness; grateful for the opportunity of meeting someone who you may be able to serve.
Secret 2: Take Initiative
Rather than walking in hoping someone will approach you, go to the meeting with the intention of taking the initiative with at least 3 different people.
Secret 3: Take a genuine interest.
Do not just ask, “What do you do?” and then a minute later, say, “It was nice to meet you and move on. Rather, take a genuine interest in the person you are talking to. Ask a few questions to draw him/her out.
