Do you want to know how to get what you want in life?
How to get …
Your biggest sales?
Your dream house?
Your dream car?
Your dream spouse?
If there is only one secret that you should learn, this is what I have to advise. I learned this principle from one of my greatest mentors – the late Zig Ziglar, “Just help other people to get what they want and you will also get what you want in life.”
Unfortunately, human nature is more inclined to think about oneself.
Our default feeling is SELFISHNESS.
Our favorite words are, “I, me and myself.”
Our favorite FM band, “WIFM.” (What’s In It For Me)
Our favorite song is, “My Way.”
Our favorite expression, “What about me?”
Honestly, if we think along this line and allow ourselves to go towards that direction. You will never get what you want in life. This is what I’ve discovered in my 52 years of existence in this world.
The more I think about myself, the less I get.
The more I share with others, the more I receive.
So if you are really serious to get what you want in life, our goal should not be only getting the promotion but to help the team and the company to grow and advanced.
If you are in sales, your goal should be to help your clients to get what they want and once your serve them well then you will get your dream car or house.
If you are courting someone, your goal should not be getting her to say “Yes” but rather how can you help her to fulfill needs.
So it is all about others not about ourselves.
So next time, we do not have to lie, to cheat, to be or to manipulate to manipulate others to get what we want.
Follow what Zig Ziglar says and you will be amazed by its effect.
“Just help other people to get what they want and you will also get what you want in life.”
THINK. REFLECT. APPLY.
