Thereafter you need to talk the talk and then actually walk the walk. Make everything look easy and natural—to those who it’s important to your goals. Focus on who can help bridge the gap from your current stepping stone to the next, and assail them with your dazzling ability. In a situation where you are freaking out about failure where everything seems to be riding on the line, keep a cool head and see it through to the end. Maintain your confidence and minimize your shortcomings by providing real solutions to your target’s bigger problems. When your target feels obliged to return the favor, ensure that they do so in a way that will build those bridges you require. By making everything look like a second hand-nature, you're making it easier for them to help you, making it easier for them to have confidence in helping you. You want to put them in a position where they feel like a failure to help you will make them regret it on their own.

It’s truly amazing how quickly the doors begin to open for you once this state is reached, but take care in not being distracted from your main goal. Never give your insecure superior the opportunity to feel threatened by your rising fame and power lest they mark you as an adversary to their own station: a fight which you’d much rather avoid at all costs if you’re to keep your true motives out of the bloodthirsty public eye.
