Connect. Connect. Connect. Respect and connect.
Why should you bother building relationships with people who are not like you? Why bother building relationships with people who can offer you nothing?
Too often I hear people say “I am not going to waste my time with...” and they list a TYPE of person whom they deem unworthy of their attention.
I also hear people say, “I can’t be bothered with someone who hasn’t already succeeded where I want to succeed.” Maybe that’s about age, education level or accomplishment. Maybe it’s just about pride!!
Leaders must be humble enough to learn from anyone. They must be wise enough to to who they are learning from, but humble enough to learn anyway.
So CONNECT with people of all walks, all ages, all races and religions with an open mind, and open heart and RESPECT.
YOU MIGHT LEARN SOMETHING!
