Four Simple Tips for Networking
Outside of the BOX
By Todd Falcone
Box. What box?
I don't live in a box! What are you talking about?
I'm talking about that little square we live in every day. No...not
our home, not our room, nor our office. It's where we reside in our
minds and how we go about living our lives. The box represents our
actions and our thoughts that bring about different results in the
things that we do.
You've probably heard the saying, "Find out what everybody else is
doing and do the exact opposite if you want to be successful" right?
That is certainly the beginning of living outside of the box in one
To obtain better results, do something different. Do something
unusual or unexpected. Stick out. BE somebody. Uniqueness is a
wonderful quality. Establish "points" of difference in all that you
do. Living outside of the box is much more than simply USP (Unique
Selling Propositions). It's how we think, how we act, and how we
live that makes the greater difference in not only our lives, but
the lives we touch.
Even entrepreneurs reside inside of the box most of the time.
Yes...even the successful one's do. It's easy. It's what we know.
Then, why in the world am I writing about getting out of the box? Is
it just to give you more work, more to think about, more to do? The
answer is both yes and no. Certainly, not for the simple sake of
making you do more, but for the complexity of making you do more.
Confused yet? I thought so.
You see...when your mind is stimulated, it creates. When you're
challenged, you rise to the task. Yes, you could easily live inside
of the box your entire life and do quite well. Live a comfortable
life, as they say. But, is that really living? It might sound like a
great way to go. But there's no growth in simplicity.
It's easy to be successful living life inside of the box. However,
it's more fun and more fulfilling "outside" of the box...and, quite
a bit more financially rewarding if done right. When you realize how
good life can be outside of the little box we call home, you will
want to venture out much more often.
What does "outside of the box" mean? It actually has multiple
meanings. But...I'll make it easy for you to understand.
When you are outside of the box you do things that are more
challenging, more interesting, more intriguing, and more thought
provoking. You simply do things unlike others. You make efforts to
create memorable experiences. Your creations are lasting and people
remember them. You are different.
Here are four ways to live life outside of the box:
Smile when least
expected. First of all, smiling is contagious and
releases all sorts of good things in your body, including
endorphins. Endorphins are substances that help to create a
sense of pleasure, peace and well being. This may sound trivial
or simple to you. But it's something that can make a big
difference. You see, most people don't really smile that often.
You remember the song, "Donít Worry, Be Happy"? Look around,
most people are worried and unhappy. Think about the difference
you can make by simply putting on a smile! You'll feel better,
they'll feel better and you'll be making the world a better
place. Think about how different it would be to walk through the
streets of Manhattan smiling at everyone and getting a smile
back. That's a bit of a big task...but, at least you can do your
Say it differently.
How many times have we heard the hum-drum opening, "Hi...my name
is...I'm calling you because you were referred to me as...etc."
First of all, I bore MYSELF silly if I stick to the same old
stuff when prospecting. Imagine what I'd be doing to my
prospects if I didn't throw them the "change up" every now and
again! I'm not saying that you ALWAYS have to do it differently,
but it sure keeps you more on top of your game when you force
yourself to say things differently that you normally do. Think
about how a prospect would feel if you picked up the phone and
said something entirely different than what they may expect. Of
course, youíre all desperately waiting for me to share with you
this brilliant new way of saying things to your prospects,
right? Well...I wouldn't be forcing you to think outside of the
box if I said it for you now, would I? Be different. Do it
differently. Leave varying messages on answering machines when
you're prospecting. Test out different words. THINK differently.
Advertise in a new way.
Running an ad? Be a little crazy. Look at what everyone else is
saying and say it differently. Stop using the same old headlines
and ad copy. Get CREATIVE. Isn't that what "out of the box"
thinking really is all about? It may take some time to get it
down right. You may have to test out many different ads before
you get it right. But, when you finally hit it right on the
nose, you'll be amazed at the massive results you'll get. Try a
different publication, location or newspaper to run your ad.
Present it uniquely.
Learn how to tell your story so good, so efficiently, and in
such an entirely different and entertaining way that you simply
can't help but capture the interest of your audience. Once you
have bonded and connected with a prospect that you would like to
have in your business, you've got to tell your story. Telling
your story is simply conveying information to your qualified
prospect that allows them to review your business in detail.
However, there are lots of ways of telling the story. There are
different mediums like live one-on-one presentations, conference
calls, recorded overviews, websites, and so on. And, there are
different WAYS in which you can present. Obviously, I'm not
talking about 'inventing' some new word or piece of the English
language that doesn't yet exist. However, if you simply think a
bit differently, you may be able to lay out the details of your
story in even a modestly different way that may prove to produce
a greater desired result.
I think you're getting my drift here. Do
it like everybody else does, and you'll get what everybody else
gets. Look like everyone else does, and you'll be like everyone
else. Sometimes it takes a little purple hair or a little flair to
stick out in the crowd. Be daring with your business. Don't worry
about being part of the "in" crowd when you go about your business.
Sometimes even successful entrepreneurs get stuck in the repetitive
routines of daily life and get a little on the dry side.
Expressing your unique points of difference in everything that you
do can do nothing but great things for you. You want to stick out,
not blend in when it comes to developing yourself into a successful
entrepreneur or leader.
Be willing to step outside of the box and you'll be remembered.
Stick in the box at all times and you'll likely blend into the
mediocrity and the vanilla of society.
