Most people you run into are average. They do what they have to do in order to pay their bills, raise a family and keep their jobs. I’m not criticizing average people. Most are very good people.
But every now and then you might run into an exceptional person.
Exceptional people reveal themselves in certain ways. They are typically upbeat, enthusiastic, intelligent individuals who are doing something unusual, different, dramatic and, well, exceptional.
Most self-made millionaires in my Rich Habits Study were exceptional, in some way. But they also recognized this “exceptional” trait in others and when they did, they wrapped their arms around them and never let them get away.
They built long-term relationships with them.
They did this by staying in constant touch with them – Happy Birthday Calls, Hello Calls and Life Event Calls.
In this way, they were able to transform these Rich Relationships from saplings into redwoods.
And that happens to be a common Rich Habit among the self-made millionaires in my Study.
You see, relationships are the currency of the wealthy.
When self-made millionaires run into exceptional people, they don’t let them slip through their fingers. They adopt them, like children, and make them a part of their inner circle.
Self-made’s understand that there are not that many exceptional people out there, and when they find one, they make an effort to build a long-term relationship with them.
They do this because they understand something ordinary people don’t – exceptional people lift everyone they do business with up and this helps make those they do business with successful.
Do you know any exceptional people?
Do you stay in constant touch with them?
If you want to be successful in life, never let exceptional people slip through your fingers. Adopt them. Stay in touch with them constantly. Forge the Rich Habit of turning exceptional people into long-term relationships. Your future success depends on it.
