Recently I interviewed a friend of mine who is by far and away the most sociable guy I know.
This is someone who is completely clued-in to building a network of people in a new place, making new friends in an instant, and getting ingratiated into the right parties and social circles (all of which are things that should help massively with the December challenge).
For those of you who followed Ready For Love, you’re in for a nice treat, as the person I’m talking about is Ernesto – one of the bachelors from the show.
Follow the principles Ernesto talks about here and you’ll have even more of an edge of making things happen this December. Enjoy!
To find out more about Snap2Live, head on over to Ernesto’s website Snap2Live.com.

Here are Ernesto’s mindsets to having a great time and meeting new people.
1) Enjoy life
‘My focus is on wanting to enjoy life. I want to make sure that something good comes out of everything I do and everywhere I go. Whether it’s having a good time or having an impact and helping someone – I want to make the best of my time.
When I go to places and put myself out there, I’m doing things that I enjoy doing so that at the very least the people I meet there will have something in common with me.’
2) ‘What’s the worst that can happen?’
You don’t need a support system of friends everywhere you go. You can take the risk and go alone. If you’re scared of being by yourself, guess what, if you stay at home you’re going to be by yourself as well!
There’s a mental barrier that people put in their lives. The truth is, you shouldn’t. Just strike up conversation and say something fun. (You can find suggestions here in my December Challenge Guide if stuck for ideas).
Why assume the person you want to speak to isn’t a nice person and won’t speak with you? Take the chance.
3) Be your BEST self
If you remove agendas and intent and all you have is two people trying to have a good time, then you’re liberated to being the fun, cool version of you.
Socialising and networking is a skill like any other. It’s something that you get better at and that becomes more natural the more you do it.
4) Say Yes
This is one of the rules in the guide. The only time you’re allowed to say ‘No’ is if you’re double booked. Start taking chances and trying new things.
Question Of The Day:
What one thing has this interview inspired you to go out and do? Use this as leverage for getting out there and doing something you wouldn’t normally. Commit to it right now and let me know what it is you’re going to be doing in the comments below!
Snap2Live is a fashion belt made out of vintage seat-belt material that acts as a reminder of the things you can do every day to save lives and keep the roads safe.
Not texting while driving, not drinking and driving, and buckling up can prevent over 80% of road related deaths.
Something I talk about on my Retreat programs is that for everything that we want to condition ourselves to do, we want to have a button or a trigger that acts as a reminder for a certain thought.
The Snap2Live belt can act as both a reminder of these things – and as a great conversation starter to help you in getting out there to meet new people. Grab yours here.
