No one gets anywhere far or fast on their own, instead the most successful people have a strong network around them and aren’t afraid to ask for help.
Fact: Psychological research shows that if you can convince someone to help you, it deepens the relationship from their perspective as they justify reasons why they should oblige. Just be careful not to abuse someone’s generosity.
So growing your network and reaching out to people for help and helping others in return is important. It is easier to build a network and star in touch now than ever before with instant regular communication, the internet and especially LinkedIn.
