I have been inspired by A Little Story About a Powerful Business Idea. Bob Burg and John David Mann’s book The Go-Giver A Little Story About a Powerful Business Idea has been a spark in my life and has very quickly become a central theme. I see it as much more than a business idea. It is indeed a way to live and a way to be. This blog, my first attempt at such thing, is an effort to document my journey, which I call an experiment, down the path of becoming a “Go-Giver.”
Every good experiment must be well documented and this is my attempt to document a living a breathing experiment to live as Go-Giver. Obviously reading the book will help readers of this blog understand the idea but as an introduction let me share The Go-Givers
Five Laws of Stratospheric Success
1. THE LAW OF VALUE
Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment.
2. THE LAW OF COMPENSATION
Your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them.
3. THE LAW OF INFLUENCE
Your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people’s interests first.
4. THE LAW OF AUTHENTICITY
The more valuable gift you have to offer is yourself.
5. THE LAW OF RECEPTIVITY
The key to effective giving is to stay open to receiving.
I am certain that I will be able to share many success, as I have already begun to experience them. I will also try to honestly share the less than successful times when I do not live up to any law of success.
There are a few people who are experts at using these laws within a business environment and I am not one of them. As noted above, my purpose here is to document my personal journey and share it with those who are interested. If you are searching for a teacher, a coach, a mentor etc I suggest contacting the Authors, or possibly some of the people I meet along the way.
Thanks for reading and I hope you find some enjoyment in my ramblings.
