Introductions Boomerang Back As Beneficial Invitations

boomerangs back to you as unforeseen benefits

Marie Forleo of Marie Forleo International got her first job after college because of a customer to the bar where she bartended. The customer asked what Marie wanted to do. Marie wanted to work on Wall Street. The customer’s brother-in-law worked on Wall Street. The customer took Marie’s resume to her brother-in-law, and Marie’s first job after college was on Wall Street.

Taking that beginning to heart, Marie began introducing people to each other for their mutual benefit. Those introductions boomeranged back to Marie as invitations to appear with Oprah Winfrey and Anthony Robbins. Marie’s philanthropy brought an invitation from Richard Branson. Branson introduced Marie to a woman he thought could help Marie’s career.

Marie Forleo’s respect for people’s needs to connect for mutual benefit
boomeranged back to her with invitations to connect for her benefit.

Hairstylist David Wagner had a client who came in every five weeks. One day, the client came in for a styling weeks early. When Wagner asked about her evening plans, she said she wanted to look and feel good that night.

Wagner gave his client a great scalp massage, shampooed her hair, styled her hair, joked with her, and laughed with her. She hugged him goodbye.

Days later, Wagner received a letter from this client. The client had intended to commit suicide the night of the last styling. She wanted to look good for her funeral. Having no idea what he was doing for the woman, Wagner provided enough respect for her needs and passions that she felt her life could get better. She got treatment and changed her life.

The respect Wagner gave his client boomeranged back to him as a revelation that he had the power to make a difference in the lives of other people. Wagner then boomeranged the benefit out. He launched Daymaker Movement, wrote the book Life As A Daymaker, and continues to respect the needs and passions of other people. Wagner still thanks his client for her letter because of what her letter did for his life. And Daymakers around the world take intentional acts of good will everyday, creating ever more benefit boomerangs.
