This is what Bob Burg and John David Mann tells in their book The Go-Giver. Very interesting statement, perhaps a little abstract, but if you read the book The Go-Giver, you will clearly understand how much YOU get when you first learn to give.
In our work with network marketing, we basically have two tasks. The first one is all the actual work to physically expand our organization – that is the practical part. The second part is to develop and continually improve ourselves and our skills.
By focusing on both these areas, we create the best conditions for success within our Network Marketing business.
This book sets in exactly where we typically most need it: by helping us mentally, to get the most beneficial approach to our work with network marketing. With the right mental approach, the practical part becomes so much easier and our results so much better.
If you haven’t already read the book, then I recommend you promptly to do so. Here is a brief description:
The Go-Giver is a inspiring story about receiving, when you give.
The Go-Giver tells the story of an ambitious young man named Joe who yearns for success. Joe is a true go-getter, though sometimes he feels as if the harder and faster he works, the further away his goals seem to be. And so one day, desperate to land a key sale at the end of a bad quarter, he seeks advice from the enigmatic Pindar, a legendary consultant referred to by his many devotees simply as the Chairman.
Over the next week, Pindar introduces Joe to a series of successful “go-givers”: a restaurateur, a CEO, a financial advisor, a real estate broker and “The Connector,” who brought them all together. Pindar’s friends share with Joe the Five Laws of Stratospheric Success and teach him how to open himself up to the power of giving.
Joe learns that changing his focus from getting to giving – putting others’ interests first and continually adding value to their lives – ultimately leads to unexpected returns.
Imparted with wit and grace, The Go-Giver is a heartwarming and inspiring tale that brings new relevance to the old proverb “give and you shall receive.”
