How I met Richard Branson – The 6 degrees of separation and the 6 steps to meeting anyone you want to meet.

Written by Warren Whitfield. Posted in Articles, Inspirational, Life Coaching Services, Warren Whitfield's Quotes

GYI0050763223.jpgAnyone whom we would like to meet on planet Earth is separated from us by a maximum of 6 degrees. However my experience has been that most are separated from us by only 2 or 3 degrees.

We coexist with others for them to help us achieve our full potential and vice versa.

The phenomenon is explained like this – If you wanted to meet Barack Obama for example, you know someone who knows someone who knows someone …… (to a maximum of 6 degrees of separation) who knows this contact personally.

Everyone whom we’ve ever met, or who crosses our path every day falls into our circle of influence. From the moment we decide whom it is we want to meet, every new person that walks past us becomes the potential to meet our chosen contact.

We need to understand a few things first about how to make it work. The “steps” work like this….

1)Define what is it that you want, or what is your idea?

2)Whom is it that you want to meet?

This is crucial to define honestly with ourselves first. Sometimes the biggest lies we tell are the ones we tell ourselves and so its vital that we are clear about our motives in order to meet whomever. Ultimately, what we want to achieve won’t succeed with unclear or dishonest motives.

6-degrees-of-separationWe also can’t just interact with our circle of influence by asking for what we want. We are also there to help others meet whom they need to meet to help them succeed.

We coexist with others for them to help us achieve our full potential and vice versa.

So when I ask anyone for what I need, I also say, “Is there anything you need help or advice with? Perhaps I can assist you regardless?”

Invariably we are the key to their success too and we have to give that to them (if we are able to) because that becomes our success too. The steps continue….

 3) “Excuse me what do you think about this idea?”

 4) “Do you perhaps know how I can meet (whomever)?”

 5) Is there anything you need that I can perhaps help you with?

These steps in this order will attract and bring about a meeting with whomever it is you want to meet. The 6th step is the actual meeting with our chosen contact and proceeds like this:

6) “Hello Sir Branson, its a pleasure to meet you. My reason for wanting to meet you is …..”

Knowing exactly why and what you want is crucial. Openness and honesty with a reciprocal attitude is what makes it happen very quickly.

This is how I met Richard Branson. I was separated from him by only two degrees. I “bumped” into an acquaintance of mine the same day I decided on why I wanted to meet Sir Branson. By exercising these steps, this acquaintance informed me that he was in high school with one of one of the Virgin billionaire’s business partners in South Africa. Three days later, I received a call from London to set up the meeting.

I don’t think though that following these steps guarantees that you will meet anyone you want to. Let’s be real for a moment, if the person you want to meet doesn’t want to meet you, they might as well be separated from you by 1000 degrees. The reason you want to meet them or idea that you want to share still has to appeal to them.

How has this phenomenon worked for you?

The spoken word – Suli Breaks on education – Must watch!

Man is a 3 part being – The Identity Of Man – The Ego and the Super Ego

Why do we make the same mistakes? How do our belief ruin or improve our lives? How do we actually identify our beliefs and how do we change them if they’re not working for us?

AAC National Addiction Sobriety Week 27 June – 3 July

Written by Warren Whitfield. Posted in Articles, Warren Whitfield's Quotes

……

Addiction Action CampaignThe Addiction Action Campaign (AAC) announced today that they would be hosting a national addiction prevention week as from 2012, which is to be named the AAC National Addiction Sobriety Week.

The need for such a week was identified by AAC C.E.O. Warren Whitfield. Speaking from their Johannesburg office, he said “Unfortunately the world consciousness seems to think that addiction is just drugs. More people live with and die from an addiction than from HIV AIDS and yet there still is no national funding that makes treatment accessible to all.”

Whitfield said that there are many addictions in South Africa which do not get the attention they deserve, nor does the country realise how extensive the issue is. “Drug addiction is just a small part of addiction. People are addicted to a host of other things and behaviours which are not drugs and our laws such as the Prevention for and Treatment of Substance Abuse Act, do not make allowances or provisions for behavioural addictions such as porn, gambling, over spending and sex”  he said.

Whitfield called on all South African’s, corporates and government to support this initiative as much as possible as the epidemic of addiction in South Africa is “almost out of control”. He said, “It is time to realise that the issue of addiction in South Africa is about 15 years behind the successes of the HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention campaigns. Yet it kills far more South African’s annually”.

The week will run every year following the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking which is held annually on the 26th of June.

Next week will see the conclusion of the 12th season of The Bachelorette, as Joelle 'JoJo' Fletcher gets engaged to either Jordan Rodgers or Robby Hayes. And according to a new report, there's set to be a dramatic break-up ahead of the romantic proposal.lace front wigs Us Weekly claims that JoJo comes to the difficult decision of choosing between the two suitors after one of them makes a big mistake with her parents Joseph and Soraya. Family matters: Joelle 'JoJo' Fletcher apparently picks her fiance in next week's Bachelorette finale after one of the men makes a big mistake with her parents Who will it be?: Jordan Rodgers (L) and Robby Hayes are the two men left in the competition, and one of them allegedly gets sent packing after failing to ask JoJo's parents for her hand in marriage The runner-up gets dumped after failing to ask the 25-year-old's parents' for her hand in marriage, and during the emotional rejection, JoJo confesses that she wanted things to turn out differently. 'JoJo was sobbing,' a source told Us Weekly. 'She told him, “I wanted it to be you.”' The insider added: 'It was important to JoJo that the guys get her parents’ permission before proposing. JoJo viewed it as disrespectful that he didn’t.' Us Weekly claims that JoJo's family liked both of the finalists, but thought that the man she eventually picks was better suited to her. Favourite from the start: Jordan received the First Impression Rose and his relationship with JoJo has gone from strength to strength ever since

Not true: The 27-year-old former quarterback has denied that he cheated on his last girlfriend 'Everyone thought he was husband material,' a source said. 'Later, they told JoJo that they liked the other man too, but they thought the second would be more loyal and a better fit.' And speaking about the family's meeting with the runner-up, the insider revealed: 'After he left, Soraya said she thought he was a player.' It seems that JoJo did make the right decision however, as she is apparently still very happily engaged to the winner. She likes what she sees: JoJo has also fallen in love with former competitive swimmer Robby, 27 Denying the rumours: Robby has refuted claims that he dumped his girlfriend to appear on the show Former quarterback Jordan, 27, has been a favourite to win the show from night one, when JoJo presented him with the First Impression Rose.

Both of the finalists have faced rumours about past relationships, with Jordan's ex Brittany Farrar claiming that they broke up because she cheated on him. He denied this to JoJo on the show. The footballer is estranged from his famous NFL star brother Aaron, whose girlfriend Olivia Munn is close pals with Jordan's ex-girlfriend. Aaron finally addressed his younger brother speaking about their fraught relationship on the show during an interview with WISN on Tuesday. 'As far as those kinds of things go, I've always found that it's a little inappropriate to talk publicly about some family matters, so I'm not going to speak on those things,' he said. 'But I wish him well in the competition.' Meanwhile a friend of Robby's ex-girlfriend Hope Higginbotham has claimed that he dumped her in order to go on The Bachelorette, something which he denied during last week's hometown dates. The Bachelorette finale followed by the After The Final Rose special will air on ABC on Monday.cosplay wigs She made the right choice: JoJo is apparently still happily engaged to the winner, who popped the question in May.
