As entrepreneurs, businessmen or professionals, we always think of achieving success. There are a lot of blogs, forums, and books on this subject. Just like most of them, I believe there is no golden rule for success and there is nothing like an overnight success.
I came across this wonderful book called The Go-Giver: A Little Story About A Powerful Business Idea, which gives us “5 simple laws” for achieving stratospheric success. I believe if you understand them well and put them in practice, they will certainly make a huge difference.
1. THE LAW OF VALUE
Your true worth is determined by how much more value you give 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. THW LAW OF INFLUENCE
Your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people’s interest first.
4. THE LAW OF AUTHENTICITY
The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself.
5. THE LAW OF RECEPTIVITY
The key to effective giving is to stay open and receiving.
To summarize the book, there is nothing like an overnight success. You need to have a lot of patience and equal amount of passion. Your connections, your ability to serve your clients well and influence people will play a large role in achieving it and it will take time.
This small book with simple yet powerful pointers could impact every human being who want to take a leap forward in any profession.
