From the desk of Paul Mascetta Influence Master and "Secret Weapon" to the Gurus
You’re about to discover the same "power link" that separates the happy and successful from the lonely, miserable and failure-prone people in the world.
Before I do, I just want to make sure we’re not wasting each other’s time so let me ask you one simple question:
Some people seem to almost stumble onto good luck, wealth, and opportunities, even when they might be less qualified or intelligent than most… while others work hard, pay their dues but can’t seem to catch a break no matter how hard they try.
Some people spend their entire lives trying to get ahead by educating themselves, putting in more time than others or simply just giving as much as they can to others… and still wind up broke, lonely and unfulfilled while another group of people get access to more money, relationships and resources than they even know what to do with.
In fact, some of these even abuse their power simply because they have so much of it that they take it for granted. To them it’s like second nature. Almost like breathing. They don’t take the time to think about how lucky they are, they just accept it as a normal part of life.
Well, if you’ve ever wondered (even for a second) how this elite group of people live the kind of dream lives that they do, then this may very well be the most important letter you ever read. Because today I will be sharing the three most powerful secrets you will ever need to know about how a select group of people ALWAYS position themselves for victory.
In fact, you can have none of those things but still join this elite group. Because what you will discover here can be used to transform EVERY single aspect of your life….it’s really that powerful.
These 3 secrets have been used by people like Oprah Winfrey, Donald Trump, Barack Obama, Steve Jobs (creator of Apple), Mark Zuckerberg (creator of Facebook), Mother Theresa and any other person who has made an immense impact on the world.
Whether you like these people or not doesn’t matter. Whether you agree with what they stand for doesn’t matter. What does matter is what they have been able to accomplish in life and how they did it.
Influence – as defined by the English dictionary – is the capacity or power of persons or things to be a compelling force on or produce effects on the actions, behavior or opinions of others.
You see, many people falsely assume that Oprah is as popular and rich as she is because she has had one of the most watched television shows in the world. And that’s true. But what exactly made that show so popular?
There were (and still are) countless talk shows on TV that are just like the Oprah Winfrey show. But what was it about hers that made it stand out above the rest? It was her.
It was her ability to connect with people. You see, no matter how wealthy or famous Oprah is, her influential ability enables her to have people who may be completely different from her identify with and connect with her.
Mark Zuckerberg, who has created the largest social networking website on the planet and perhaps the most visited website in the world, used the power influence in a completely different way. Rather than connecting personally with people himself, he created something that lets other people connect.
Simply put, every single one of these people has influenced the minds of other people to get where they are today.
Whether you realize this or not, your ability to influence will ultimately supersede your talent, ability, education, knowledge, experience or any other beneficial trait that you bring to the table. The reason why is simple: to truly capitalize on any of those things, you will – at some point – need the help of someone else.
In his bestselling book The Millionaire Mind, Thomas J. Stanley interviewed 100’s of millionaires (most self-made) to see what success-driving characteristics they shared.
Did you know that when asked what the number factor which contributed to their success was, the majority of millionaires said it was their ability to deal with others?
That’s right. It wasn’t their education, their expertise, their start up capital. It was their ability to deal with others.
You could graduate from Harvard Law School and be the smartest lawyer on the block; if you can’t convince a judge, a jury, or at the very least your clients that you know what you’re talking about, you will likely lose to the other attorney who can…even if he/she is less educated.
You could have a million-dollar idea or the creativity to change the world we live in by developing something like Windows or the IPod… but if you can’t influence the right people to invest in that vision, it will forever remain a dream leading you right back where you started.
You could have all the great qualities of a life partner… but if you never influence someone to go out on a date with you and give you a chance, you will most likely remain alone a lot longer than you have to.
Perhaps you’re not interested in money, status or "winning" per se. Maybe you just want to positively impact the world and make a difference. The power to influence will enable you to get your message across to more people and help them… because they will trust what you say. And once people trust you, they will listen to you.
Perhaps you have all the money you need and aren’t interested in anything I just mentioned. As a human being, you will still… Read more…
