Do you have a favorite song? The one that makes you smile and move, whenever, wherever. Mine was, “Call Me Maybe”, by Carly Rae Jepsen. Our favorite song instantly connects with us and changes our mood with ease. It’s amazing!
Like your song, what if connecting with people was easy?
We’re wired for connection and without it, we simply go crazy. We want to be seen, heard, felt and understood. We want someone to “get it”. Frustration sets in when this doesn’t happen.
Your ability to effectively connect with people gives you the opportunity to lead them. John Maxwell’s Law of Connection states that leaders touch a heart before they ask for a hand. Lady Gaga is fantastic at this! She effectively leads her Little Monsters (her pet name for her fans) because she first touches their hearts.
When we don’t connect with others, we lose their trust and eventually lose the relationship. Not connecting is boring. Put in the effort to truly connect. The results are awesome!
