Lessons from a high level network

Reasons why Building a network is the HIGHEST VALUE SKILL you can develop.

By Douglas Vermeeren, The Modern Day Napoleon Hill

Douglas Vermeeren - Modern Day Napoleon HIll

Why is the most valuable skill you can generate? It will be the one that opens the most doors of opportunity, gives you the most benefit and support and naturally creates the most income. Over the years I have been able to study more than 400 of the worlds top achievers much like what Napoleon Hill had done to write the landmark book Think and Grow Rich. While engaged in this research there were two powerful things that occurred. One of these things was an observation and the other was a result.

The observation was that EVERY single top achiever that I met with attained their success because of who they surrounded themselves with. The old adage Your Network equals your Net Work is unquestionably true. Associations at high level opened up opportunities not available to the general public. High level networks gave access to support, systems, clients and more high level introductions. Without a powerful network you are limited to your personal efforts and your connections are limited.

Nearly all results in life come through our interactions with others. If you have a low level of network you will have a low level of results.

The results I experienced were first hand success and wealth. Obviously success is not a destination but an ongoing series of experiences. As I began to level up my connections my results have continued to rise. Those that entered my network helped me, mentored me, opened my eyes to possibilities I had never experienced or considered. My network literally taught me what success could look like. Perspective is a powerful thing and generally eh result of who you spend the most time with. We are all teaching and influencing each other. If you surrounding yourself with inadequate teachers and influences you will live far below your potential. 

Below are some of the most important lessons I have learned from having a high level network. 

The #1 Habit and skill of the rich is high level networking.

Your network determines your net worth. But first you must decide what is of worth to you and what you value most.

Networking is not about simply making a sale it is about creating relationships that make selling easier.

Your network is a safety net that allows you to solve bigger problems.

Your network will determine your quality of life more than any other factor.

All wealth comes from your ability o connect with other people. 

Social capital is the most important asset a company or individual can build in todays marketplace.

Your highest value skill will be your ability to connect with people who can help you get what you want.

Access is the most highly sought after opportunity today.

Your rolodex is your greatest asset.

It is better to have 100 friends than 1000 rubles. Russian Proverb

We become the combination of the 5 people we spend the most time with.

We rise to the level of the things we allow to influence us.

The people you have in your network determine the opportunities that you have access to.

People help their friends most.

It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.

Everything you want is only a relationship away.

The pre-internet concept of six degrees of separation is now obsolete. You are now closer to everyone you want to connect with than every before.

All high level success is created by a team, not an individual.

How well are you known in the network that matters.

True networking is rarely done. It’s not about exchanging business cards or meeting for coffee. It is creating synergistic long term connections that create powerful outcomes for all involved.

The highest connections  come because what you are doing has meaning.

Curiosity is at the foundation of connection.

If you are the smartest person in the room you are in the wrong room.

Business success is a CONTACT sport.

Connection is a result of shared emotional experiences. Nothing bonds better.

A circle of influence is never created by accident.

Good networks don’t build themselves.

You’ll never do a $1 Million dollar deal at a $10 breakfast.

Be so on-purpose that people want you in their network.

Decide in advance what you want from your connections.

Networking is rarely about attending a networking event.

First impressions can determine your final outcomes.

Your Highest Value Skill is NOT sales

Your Highest Value Skill is NOT Sales.

Some business gurus are telling people that they need to develop their Highest Value or most valuable skills.That part is right! You need to focus on the skill that will give you the highest return on your efforts.

What they got wrong is that they are teaching that it is sales. Sales is important, but its not the first step.

Your network is. You can’t sell unless you have someone to sell to. And the level of your network will determine the level of the people who you get to sell to. Lastly I would also suggest that sales is not the most valuable thing your network could offer you either. You will find that networking to sell is the weakest kind of networking. Instead network to find more valuable things. Most of the time in life and business your highest value skills and assets are things that will give you long term returns not a short term sale or commission.

Here are 4 to think about:

1) Support and resources 

Who in your network can help yu with the things you need to grow your business. This can be education and mentorship, financial support, help implementing systems or even introductions to other people. There is truth to the russian proverb which states, “It is better to have a 100 friends than 1000 rubles.”

2)Opportunities 

Most of the big opportunities in my life have come through other people. Some of these opportunities have been to attend or speak at big events, become involved in excellent investment opportunities or attend high level events or meet celebrities. Recently one of my contacts in the UK invited me to have tea at Kensington Palace with the Royals and attend ASCOT. Your best opportunities in life will come through those you know.

3)Team members or business systems

At high level networking events it is not uncommon to meet people with specialized skillset who are very successful at what they do. These opportunities are fantastic occasions to find people, services or systems that you can use to strengthen your own business.

4) Customers (but not in the way you think) 

Low level networkers look for single individual customers — you need to look for people to collaborate with that have large groups of your customers.)

Again sales is an important skill, but it isn’t the one that will create the most wealth or success for you. The skill you need to develop is your ability to build a higher level network.

Hope this is helpful.
