The Five Laws of Stratospheric Success
Shifting your focus from “getting to giving” is not only a nice way to live life…but a very financially profitable way, as well.
You cannot control “The” Economy but you can absolutely control “Your” economy. When Bob Burg, coauthor of the international bestseller, The Go-Giver, speaks about “giving,” he’s talking in terms of “constantly and consistently providing value to the lives of others.” When you can take your focus off yourself and shift it onto how you can be an asset of value to other people, you’ll plant seeds of goodwill — of great will — that will come back to you many, many times over. And, not because of some magical, mystical type of thinking, but because it makes absolutely practical sense.
However, one wonders: “Isn’t that kind of naive?” “Isn’t that just feel-goody, new-agey stuff that doesn’t work in the real-world?” Or, even, “Sure, maybe when the economy is good, but now we have to fight for everything we get. So, isn’t this simply bad advice?”
Actually, not only is it not naive, it’s quite practical. And, again, for very concrete reasons that Bob will persuasively explain to your listeners.
Bob has built his business, and shows others how to build theirs, based on one overriding, foundational principle:
“All things being equal, people will do business with, and refer business to, those people they know, like and trust.”
“Many thanks for the outstanding job you did for our client, RE/MAX. The fact that you got a standing ovation from the audience 15 minutes into your presentation proves just how powerful an impact you had. My client was so thrilled after those first 15 minutes that she actually left the room to call me and tell me how good you were and they still had another 100 mins to go! Your ideas were spot on. You obviously did your research. You took that stage and delivered 1000%.”
Derek Sweeney, President, The Sweeney Agency
