I’m excited to announce that my newest book is now available! If you are a real estate agent who has been thinking about becoming a broker and opening your own boutique real estate brokerage, then this book is for you.
Today’s Minute with Maxwell illustrates a solid definition of what character is and why it’s so important for us to focus on our character. It’s who we are is built upon four cornerstones of a solid foundation, character is certainly one of those cornerstones.
If you want instant influence, then learn how to help people improve their social status.
The only thing that persuades people to move toward you or from you is their presumption to whether or not you will increase their status or decrease it.
Most of our decisions throughout life are tied to how we perceive ourselves and how others will perceive us. Think about the following status symbols:
Harvard degree = intelligence
Rolex watch = style
Oceanfront estate = wealth
Washboard abs = healthy lifestyle
Business owner = power
Family vacations = happiness
From the clothing brands we wear to the cars we drive, the schools we send our kids to, and the neighborhoods we live in, from the companies we work for to the places we go to on vacation, all are indicators of social status.
In the book how to Win Friends and Influence People, Dale Carnegie wrote about liking people.
You can take this a step further by helping people improve their social status.
