The Connection Factor

The Connection Factor

You can swindle, manipulate, control, and contort people. You can do it to the truth too. You can get what you want in the short-term by persuading someone.

But what if you connected with them? I’m talking about a genuine and exciting connection.

Life’s too short to be based on persuasion all the time. Persuading someone can happen one time. But if you connect, you share in a mutually enjoyable relationship that persuades you to bigger and better things for a lifetime.

Persuasion can leave a bad taste in your mouth. Connection is like a romantic moment that lives on and on.

If you view the relationships in your life in a one-sided, persuasion mentality, you’re really missing out…

Because great relationships arent about persuasion first, they’re about connection.
