Whether searching for a new job or business opportunity or just expanding our network, having real connections is not about the number of contacts we have but the quality of these contacts. Being more connected to people and colleagues is not about having 1000 or even 10,000 on our list, but being connected to the hearts and minds of people we have worked with or met. These are the true connections. It is the credibility and trustworthiness that we have, it is the care and passion for people, it is the drive for excellence and success that are embedded in us whether seen or not.
Our real network is not that list on LinkedIn or Xing. Our real network and real asset is our passion, our love, our care, our reputation, our congruence and our ethics. This is our real network. So whether our list includes 10, 100, 1000, or even 10,000, it doesn’t really matter. What really matters is that this list is built on a very basic foundation of empathy, compassion, greatness and excellence within us.
