- Fascinate: Your 7 Triggers for Persuasion and Captivation by Sally Hogshead
Entrepreneurialism isn't just about starting your own business. It's about creating amazing opportunities and dream scenarios for yourself. In this episode, Andy Frisella and Vaughn Kohler tell the story behind The MFCEO Project and share tips for how you can motivate successful people to work with you.
According to Andy and Vaughn, it's important to find a way to work with a successful person naturally--don't force it. Find some way to offer a service or provide value to that person--without a price tag or strings attached. If you do this, you build goodwill for the future.
Too many people who want to get the attention of successful men and women see those individuals as means to an end. They have a professional agenda or axe to grind. But you can create amazing opportunities for yourself by treating the success person as exactly that--a person. Be genuinely interested in who they are, not what they can do for you.
Just as the man with a bunch of women around him at the bar is attractive to other women, you'll be attractive to successful entrepreneurs if you already have your own shit going. Don't wait around hoping a successful entrepreneur is going to let you help them with their projects or businesses. Start your own projects. Even if you fail, the successful person sees that you have initiative.
In addition to these insights, Andy and Vaughn talks about other important things to help you create amazing opportunities:
Every day there are people who don’t achieve the goals that they could achieve if they just acted. In almost every case, the reason they didn’t act was because THEY TALKED THEMSELVES OUT OF IT. They let the "little loser voice" inside them dictate the terms of their life - who they are & what they can accomplish.But successful people take specific steps to take control of their mental conversation - and their lives. In this episode, I tell you what they do to dominate.
"What if?" is a question I hear people asking all the time...people who are in the middle of their entrepreneurial journey...or people who are in the midst of trying to accomplish a big goal. The reality is, people who constantly ask themselves that question are mentally abusing themselves. They are subjecting themselves to doubt & uncertainty. Successful people, entrepreneurs or otherwise, are different. They ask entirely different questions and operate under a whole different set of expectations.
