Today, I wanted to talk to you about seven different strategies for making yourself successful in a new environment. I’m obviously in a new environment. We get a lot of questions and thoughts about how you can meet new people, how you can develop friendships or build a band of brothers, especially in a new environment. Now, this could be something like a new community or a new state. I’m all the way across the country. I hardly know anyone out here. I think I know, I don’t know, eight people maybe. Or it could be a new career, if you’re starting a new job and you’re in a new environment that way, or going into college, or wherever you may find yourself out of place because you’re not in with the crowd if you will.
And that’s what I wanted to talk with you about today because it’s my goal and my objective to get very familiar with the area that I’m in, get very, very familiar with the people that live here. In fact, I’ve had a lot of opportunity and success to do that already. And I’ve had to push outside of my comfort zone a little bit. It’s always awkward when you’re trying to meet new people. It’s definitely more comfortable to have an existing friendship or circle. But when you’re in a new place, that’s difficult. And I want to make sure that I really assimilate and embed myself into this community because it represents all sorts of opportunities. And that’s the biggest thing that you need to understand is that any opportunity that may present itself in life, in general, is always going to come because you have a connection with another individual. There’s no opportunity that I can think of that doesn’t come through your relationships,
