However , each skill is necessary for the overall formula to work . These ingredients , when properly combined together , will help you achieve explosive results .
Polish says that each skill , even as simple or basic as it might seem , is needed in order to achieve real success in your efforts to collaborate and network in the business world .

FOCUS ON HELPING TO REDUCE THEIR SUFFERING IN SOME WAY .
The best networkers in the world like Polish , focus on reducing the suffering of others . The biggest take away here is to ask others about what pain points you can help them solve . In fact , the origins of any successful business start in the desire to solve a problem that the consumer is facing . The most successful businesses are the best at solving those problems .
In business networking , the same thing applies . When you focus on helping others to solve a problem or reduce their pain in some way , you create a long-lasting bond and it ' s forever emblazoned in their minds . As you add value , slowly but surely , from one connection to the next , people remember you as someone who helped them in a very important way .
There ' s real power in that . One of the ways that Richard Branson , founder of the Virgin empire , was able to expertly build his own network was by going out there and trying to reduce the suffering of others .
He did this both in his businesses and in his business relationships . That ' s a true defining factor in a successful human being .

INVEST YOUR TIME , MONEY AND ENERGY INTO RELATIONSHIPS .
Arriana Huffington , who is oftentimes called one of the most connected media moguls in the world , understands the underlying necessity to invest your time , money and energy into relationships . While most of the world is out to get , the most well-networked business people in the world are looking to give .
It seems counterintuitive to most people . I know it did to me long ago . But there ' s true beauty in giving to others . Not only is there a karmic value there , but it also simply feels good . Learn to relish and appreciate the sheer importance of giving something of yourself to others and incredible things will begin to happen .

BE AN ENERGY CHARGER RATHER THAN AN ENERGY DRAINER .
How do people feel about you when you call them ? Are they quick to answer or do they ignore you ? The difference is enormous . Those that are energy chargers are always at the top of the list for others . Those that are energy drainers are not .
You often hear Tony Robbins talking about being an energy charger . As an influencer and a networker , he ' s acutely focused on the energy that you put out into the world . There ' s something to say about being sensitive and attuned to the energy that you ' re giving off into the world . People pick up on this so it ' s important to be aware of it .

ADD AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF VALUE TO THE LIVES OF OTHERS .
I ' ve always been a firm believer in adding massive amounts of value . And in business , whether you ' re networking or selling a product or providing a service and so on , you have to add loads of value . Without doing that , you won ' t get far . There ' s something so special and magical about adding value . So few people do it . But when people do , doors open that would never been opened before .
Peter Diamandis , chairman of the X Prize Foundation , co-founder of Singularity University and New York Times bestselling author , is a firm believer in adding an enormous amount of value across the board . He often states that people can achieve extraordinary results by applying this single principle . That ' s partly what ' s helped him to succeed at such a high level , and it ' s something seen amongst the top business networkers and entrepreneurs across the world over .

BE USEFUL , BE GRATEFUL AND DON ' T TAKE PEOPLE FOR GRANTED .
No matter what industry you ' re in , you ' ll always find people who are crass , rude and unruly . However , that ' s no reflection on you . It ' s only a reflection on themselves . But you have to look past that . Be useful and grateful for any opportunity that you ' re given , and don ' t take people for granted . This applies as much in the business world as it does in your personal life . We always tend to take people for granted .
You often hear Daymond John , founder and CEO of FUBU and investor on the Shark Tank series , talking about not taking people for granted who are around you . It ' s easy to overlook someone and not give them the
