The Mindset of Giving

We are approaching the end of 2014 and if you want to be successful you should be planning your goals for 2015. Changing up the things that didn’t work and continuing with the things that did.


get what you want in life

One of my goals is always to continue my education, this education could be technical skills, marketing skills, leadership skills or in this particular case it was about mindset.

In this case I was watching a short video series by John Maxwell and Less Brown called the good, the bad and the ugly.

One thing that really struck a chord with me was when John Maxwell said what really changed his life 40 years ago was when he was listening to Zig Ziglar.

Zig was up on stage and said

You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want

This is powerful but what does it mean to you?

How are you going to help people get want they want?

Which people?

Help People

There are many ways you can help people, you can give of your time, you can give donations and you can help people by helping them find solutions to their problems.

You know it is better to teach somebody to fish than just give them the fish, right?

Which is why teaching people new skills is one of the most successful ways to help them.

Which brings me back to marketing…

When you are marketing you are providing solutions for people to help them get what they want.

Get people what they want

It doesn’t matter what type of business you are in, online or offline you have a product or service that is going to help someone in some way?

How you market that product or service can be done in many different ways but primarily you need to understand how it is going to help someone achieve their goals and aspirations.

You know that old line of; “buy my stuff because it is the best thing since sliced bread” a’int going to cut it.  No pun intended.

If you cannot lead with value and help point people in the right direction so you can help solve their pain, you should sit down this holiday season and rethink your strategy.

It comes right back  to where we started with that great quote form Zig

You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want

Knowing what people want and how you can help them get it is the most powerful thing you can do. Once you have done this for someone they will keep coming back time and time again.

Over to you!

I hope this gave you some end of year inspiration for 2015 and I look forward to you comments.

Have a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year.
