Here are two important things you need to keep in mind if you want to captivate others and hold their interest:

  1. Have something to say: You must become an avid learner so that you are always equipped to hold an intelligent conversation on a wide range of topics such as business, sports, economics, politics, travel, philosophy, or science.
  2. Embody a unique message: If you truly want to capture someone’s interest, you must take charge of your life and cultivate a passion or support a cause that aligns with you. You need to stand for something — preferably something that makes you shine amidst the crowd. You can’t just be polite and offer superficial conversations. This creative and appealing message will entice people to join your network. In simple words, be an original in the marketplace.

To put a spin on Jim Rohn’s words, “A network is not to be pursued; it is to be attracted by the person you become.” You must constantly invest in yourself and be open, willing, and ready to learn new things. When people sense your burning desire towards a certain subject, idea, or skill, and see you as a leading authority or an expert in your chosen field, they will flock towards you and become keen and enthusiastic to become a part of your journey.
