It’s time for another edition of “Ask the Reader” and I want to add something special to make it exciting.

I am going to pick a few of your responses to be featured as case studies in the How to Connect With Anyone course I’m creating, as well as examples for the talk I’m giving at the World Domination Summit in Portland in two weeks on the same topic (if you plan to be at the talk, please let me know in the comments so we can connect!).

This talk (and course) is going to be a blast and I’d love for some of you to be a part of it!

All you have to do is answer one of these three questions. Just leave your response in the comments at the end of the post. (email readers click here to chime in). Remember it’s your participation that makes LYL what it is.

1. What is your biggest challenge or fear keeping you from having a world-class network of passionate and inspiring peers, mentors and supporters?

or, if you already have a network you’re proud of:

2. What is your best tactic or strategy for meeting new exciting people?

or

3. What is one success story of you meeting someone you’d always wanted to meet, and how did you do it?

**Note: Feel free to stop reading right now and go directly to the comments section below to answer one of the above. I can’t wait to feature some of your responses!

If you’re not usually one to comment, I urge you, if you only comment on one post, this is the one. Even if it’s only a sentence or two, and feel free to leave it under a fake name if you must. It will dramatically help all of us. 

The People Change Everything

There is no more powerful influence on your work or life than the people you surround yourself with. It can be magic – if you spend your time connecting with the right people.

I don’t know a single person who does work they love without the support of others.

The problem is most people are lost when it comes to connecting with new, passionate and inspiring people.

There is no excuse for this. None. If you aren’t surrounding yourself with the right people, you might as well be in a straitjacket.

I love this topic, and I’m in the process of creating a course I think will help a lot (details coming soon), but it can only be useful if I get your guidance.

For those of you not familiar with Ask the Reader, every few months I give you all a chance to publicly share your thoughts, stories or advice on a big problem that lots of our readers are facing. This is your chance to get your fingerprints on what we’re creating at Live Your Legend. In fact, hearing from you is the only way I can be sure the stuff I create is actually useful to you.

It’s also a great way to get your work featured in upcoming Live Your Legend products.

Most weeks I do all the writing and you do all the reading.

Today we are switching the roles.

I want to learn from you.

So please take a few minutes and leave one sentence or more answering one of the below three questions:

1. What is your biggest challenge or fear keeping you from having a world-class network of passionate and inspiring peers, mentors and supporters?

or, if you already have a network you’re proud of:

2. What is your best tactic or strategy for meeting new exciting people?

or

3. What is one success story of you meeting someone you’d always wanted to meet, and how did you do it?

That’s it!

This week you get to be the one contributing and creating the content that is going to help so many thousands of us in the few months to come.

You can be a lot more help to the community than you probably realize.

Thank you in advance for sharing your thoughts.

I can’t wait to see your responses and incorporate them into my World Domination Summit Talk and the upcoming Connect with Anyone course.

Now please leave a quick response to one of those three questions!

Here’s to spending time around the people who make all the difference.

Thank you for sharing in that,

-Scott
