I learnt this from Malcolm Gladwell's book,Outliers.
An important skill essential for success is this ability to "draw people into your goal". It is so fundamental to success that its almost unheard of that a person succeeds without it.
How do we do this? Simple. We get people involved in the creation of the idea or at least in the planning for its execution early on in the process. If people feel like they created something, they are more likely to be committed to it.
If you want to carry your idea on your head while shouting, "This is MY idea! I CREATED it!", everyone may eventually know it's yours, but no one will care.
It is the reason why there are a lot of thoroughly frustrated, but unbelieveably smart people walking around today saying no one wants their idea or wants to help them. This skill is indispensable to success, especially in the society we live in.
Why is this? One of the greatest needs of people is the need for meaning. That simple need to know that they are contributing positively to the growth of something they really want to see grow. And if you can pitch ideas to people and make your pitch appeal to both their need for profit and their need for meaning---BOOM!---you're there. (PS: If you didn't get this paragraph, read it until you get it. It's so important.)
It's just like we studied in reliability analysis back in school. A parallel system is more reliable than a system in series, because even if one of its parts fails, there are others to support it.
In the words of Henry Ford,
Coming together is a beginning;
keeping together is progress;
working together is success".
I wish you GREATNESS.
