People often say they will do things to help you in your quest for success.
They do not always get around to it.
It is common for business acquaintances to offer to make introductions or referrals. They do so with the best of intentions, but when they get back to their office your career is not their top of mind priority.
These are not bad people, they are not liars, they just do not have "Follow Through DNA".
However, there are people out there who are wonderful about making good on their promises. These people do not agree to take actions when they are not enthusiastic. They love to see others succeed, and take pride in connecting the dots that leads to business opportunities. These unique souls are givers.
When you know someone with "Follow Through DNA" you must cherish them. Say "Thank You", and then go one step further..... find ways to help them in their quest for success.
Have A Great Day.
