Take The Lead, Move Forward & Have Fun!

Take The LeadYou’ve got to take the lead if you want to create an epic ambiance for people to have fun and remember.

We humans, have a need for social bonding, it helped us in our early days millions of years ago to be part of a pack and work together as a team.

In order to get people to bond, connected and overcome the barriers of “being strangers”, there has to be a “common goal” and/or something that sets you apart from the crowd.

You’ve got to be that “guy” or that “girl” that no matter where you go, people want to follow you or gravitate around you because they know where ever you are, that’s where the “party’s” going to be at.

But first allow me to situate where this story comes from. I just got back from my vacation on the boat cruise, which was an awesome experience by the way. I went as a solo traveller because it was last minute and I could leave on short notice.

Any ways, here’s an example of what I mean to “take the lead” and how I’ve done it: The first time I saw someone new I introduced myself saying that I was André and I was from Ottawa, then asked them the same. See if you willingly give out this information upfront, more than likely they will return at least the same information or more.

Then I let them know why I’m here at this specific time of the year and ask them why they chose their trip now instead of later. It’s a good way to break the ice, then I moved on, “hey nice meeting you we’ll see you around, I’m going to go check out this, that or whatever”, either you split or offer them to join you. “Hey, I’m actually on my way to go there but if you want you can join me and we can go explore that part of the ship!”

Later on, after all the solo introduced themselves and the reason why they were there; right after I went around and quickly talked to everyone asking them if they were doing scuba diving. Again, this was a reason to approach everyone and again, try to plant the seed in the other’s mind to set myself apart from the rest of the group. Right away people associated me as the “scuba guy” which later changed to the stunt guy.

When there’s a large crowd that you don’t know, everyone’s kind of intimidated to approach anyone but everyone’s stays in their own bubble, you’re not going to get that awesome synergy of the group ambiance. After quickly going around the room once, I started to know who was from around where and sort of what their interests were.

So, I started connecting people with one another: “Hey this person is also from that same area, you guys should talk!” I then walked away and let them talk. This creates new friendship but it also counts as “brownie points” for you as you’re the one who’s put people together in contact.

It’s Important That You Take The Lead As Soon As Possible!

That was all on day one, you’ve got to do this as fast as possible, the sooner people get connected and are no longer strangers, the more fun and a better positive energy will be created.

I talked to the solo host and offer to organize a “Rock, Paper, Scissors Tournament” to which she agreed and made some sign-up forms for me. On day 2 and 3 I collected over 55 names of people wanting to participate in my Rock, Paper, Scissors Tournament.

Seriously though, think about it, it’s very unique experience that is not a “normal” activity on cruise ships, so again, this gave me a “reason” to go talk to people, get to know more of them, etc. On day 4 I hosted the tournament and arranged with the host to get some a prize for the winner.

Again, everything was “winged”, nothing was really planned, people asked me what the prize was, I had no idea but my answer was: “The prize is kept as a surprise!  You’ve got to attend the tournament to find out!” I said that just say something and create some curiosity.

Turns out that 15 people showed up. Not bad considering, there was no “proper structure”, no follow-ups, no confirmation or reminder of the tournament. Keep in mind that people on vacation are easily distracted by all kinds of other entertainment activities, so that’s where the number’s game comes into play.

For the 15 people that did show up, they’ve had an absolute blast! The ripples of the awesome energy and good vibes resonated everywhere, lots people talked about or heard about it. Even the entertainment staffs on the ship heard about it and were giving me props for doing this. The people who missed out, later told me that they wished they were there!

For the rest of the trip I kept on getting positive comments and testimonials from people enjoying their unique experience. Where ever I went, people were either following me or inviting me to join their parties and most importantly, people where just happy to a fun time.

Overall it was an amazing experience, if there’s only one thing I want you to take away from this story is that you’ve got to make your own fun and be happy where ever you go. This is how you’ll create memorable experiences. So go out there, take charge, move forward and take the lead! You’re in full control of what impacts your life whether good or bad so make it count and have fun!

What about you, what other ideas do you have to take the lead?
