How To Impress Someone Of Higher Status


Spread the love



in today’s video you’ll learn five steps that will help you connect with and then impress anyone no matter how unreachable they may seem we’ll do this by breaking down some tricks used by mr beast tim ferriss and yes theory to connect with people like will smith justin trudeau elon musk and more to start you need to get on the person’s radar the easiest way to do this is to find a low traffic connection a less in-demand person who knows the person you’re trying to meet because they have fewer people asking for their time they’ll be more open to talking with you for a concrete example let’s look at tim ferriss he attributes his success in large part to the connections he made at south by southwest listen to his strategy when a panel ended instead of flooding the scene to get in line to talk to a panelist i would actually talk to the moderator who people tend to ignore this is a great strategy for networking events and conferences but it’s also something you can do when trying cold outreach to someone specific for instance because most people think of charlie as the face of charisma on command he receives hundreds of emails a day which means most have to go unread but for years if he emailed me it was almost guaranteed that i would see it and i could then forward it along to charlie if i thought he’d want to see it too i probably just ruined my inbox by sharing this so now you’ll need a new low traffic connection for charlie but the principle still stands it’s important to note here a low traffic connection won’t automatically introduce you just because you ask so how do you get someone to want to make a connection for you there are two ways to do this and if you do either well enough you can even skip step one the first way is to be a beacon do cool people want to be a part of for instance will smith accepted yes theory’s challenge to hella dive because he knew it would get their channel more attention i love i love what you guys are doing and i want to support that as much as possible this is one great way to be a beacon have a project that helps people outside of yourself this is how the buried life guys were able to play basketball with obama when he was one of the most in demand people on the planet it’s also how mr beast caught elon musk’s attention elon liked jimmy’s mission to protect the environment well when we did uh team trees the so our goal was 20 million and we hit like six million in the first few days and it started to slow down and then out of nowhere elon musk just replied to one of my tweets and he’s just like oh this looks interesting then elon just donated a million dollars and then almost now the world cares and it’s like paying attention it may seem like being a beacon requires a huge audience but that’s not the case at all sometimes being a beacon can just mean being the most fun looking person in the room when yes theory wanted to meet justin trudeau their plan centered mostly around getting his staff’s attention by wearing bright fun christmas sweaters to an event if you stick around the place long enough and look ridiculous people just come up here yeah you don’t even have to do that you’ve been dubbed the sweater guys i so regret not wearing my awesome sweater if being a beacon seems daunting there’s another fast simple way you can connect with anyone you admire lead with value this seems obvious but almost everyone does this wrong the most common mistake people make is trying to mask a value take as a value give the quintessential one is i’d love to buy you a cup of coffee and pick your brain that’s not leading with value five dollars for an hour of someone’s time is a bad deal one red flag to the other person that you’re not really leading with value is how often they hear you say i for example in this next clip a logan paul fan snuck into an event to try to get a job and logan actually gives him a chance to pitch himself watch this as an example of what not to do no i just need to talk to you i’m trying to talk about your brother i’m trying to talk about business trying to talk about trying to get a job like i want i want to do media i want to i’ve been trying to get what are you good at i was having dances i did like that i did i did that video you know like oh yeah you know well she really got what it takes i don’t i don’t then why would i need a mentor why would i do that totally fair question by logan and in response the guy continues to talk an eye and he makes another common mistake listen to this next clip and see if you can spot it you know life isn’t about handouts you know what i’m saying i know i’m not going to get a handout i’m not trying to get what you’re trying to do i’m trying to work hard for a little money no money i don’t know i can get a job somewhere else all i want to move to la and i want to i want to be able to be part of that look i have to go this may seem counter-intuitive but most successful people aren’t interested in undefined free work so if you want to work with someone you admire get specific on how you can help them a good framework to use is i have such and such past experience which will let me do x for you where x is something that you know from researching them that they actually value if you’re meeting people at an event a great line to instantly find out what people value is so what were you hoping to get out of this event starting like this feels organic and clues you in on how you can help them do this and you’ll be amazed at how many great relationships you make the absolute best way to lead with value is to give value without asking for anything in return a good example of this was mr beast with pewdiepie i spent all my money on ads so he can remain the number one most subscribed to channel in the world it’s the day of the super bowl and these are our blankets and if for some reason they confiscate the blankets we’re wearing something pewdiepie shirts we will advertise pewdiepie to 100 million people today now most of us can’t buy billboards or super bowl tickets just to connect with someone so here’s a quick example from a friend of mine that anyone can copy he heard on a podcast that a big youtuber he admired was interested in reading a particular book but hadn’t gotten around to it so my friend bought the book in hardcopy then went to their next live event waited around after and gave it to them it wasn’t expensive but it showed thoughtfulness and initiative which got the youtuber interested in at least talking more to my friend they ended up giving him an internship and eventually a full-time job now if you want to make multiple people want to connect with you at the same time you can combine being a beacon and leading with value by hosting events mr beast is a good example of someone who does this very well this is the largest stadium in the world and inside are the 10 biggest creators on youtube this is one million dollars in whichever one of them i find last keeps it imagine you’re an influencer who gets that invite you get to have fun meet awesome people and potentially win a million dollars of course you’re going to say yes this lets mr beast invite and connect with whoever he wants and you can do this on a smaller scale by starting a club fundraiser or meetup that people want to attend or speak at now leading with value is important especially when you’re trying to get the attention of someone whose attention is in high demand but it’s equally important not to forget the human element connecting with someone you admire shouldn’t be transactional so don’t focus on connecting with people just because you think they can help you get famous or make you money don’t be the person who emails ben and chris at charisma on demand aim for people you have a genuine interest in also one quick tip for when you do connect abandon first instinct questions make a list of the questions you think the person gets asked by most people then throw that list in the trash the person you admire is bored of hearing the same questions over and over so ask something original something they’ll be excited to answer beyond that the best thing you can do is stop hero worshiping for someone who’s rich or famous it’s easy to find people that look up to them what’s harder is finding someone who’s comfortable around them and makes them laugh at the end of the day the person you want to connect with is just a person so once you’ve followed the steps in this video and given yourself the best chance to reach them let your personality shine through now if you want to be better at making amazing first impressions so that you can go into these conversations confident that if you do get a chance to talk with someone they’ll definitely want to see

  1. This is probably the best advertising I have ever come across for trying to sell a service , they almost never take time to acknowledge or respond to comments , so this is about sales and sales only and show little value/appreciation for those that support the channel

  2. I love Norm and would absolutely love to see a video on him…but what's up with every comment from 5 months ago being about him?? There are like 100+ comments that all hit at once. Are they all bots?
