A lot of people want an influencer to give them a shoutout. Wouldn’t it be nice if someone popular told everyone they knew about you?

How do you get someone famous to promote you? Give them a lot of money.

Oh, what’s that? You don’t want to give them a lot of money? You want them to promote you for free? Not gonna happen.

They get hundreds of those requests a day. Everyone is asking for a handout. You’re just another taker who wants something from them.

However, there is one way to get someone great to promote you. It’s a foolproof method, but you’re not going to like the answer.

Befriend them before they’re famous. It works every time.

This begs the question: how in the world can you tell who is going to become famous BEFORE they’re famous?

Use my simple formula for recognizing greatness before it happens:
Mindset × Action + Time = Greatness

Note that it is not mindset alone that produces greatness. Having the right mindset is important, but it is nothing without action. Who among you is showing up every single day without fail and taking action? The combination of the two is key.

Hold on to the person you meet with a positive mindset who is ALSO taking action. It’s only a matter of time before they achieve greatness.
