It’s Not Rocket Science

“You can have everything in life if you just help enough other people get what they want.” – Zig Ziglar

“People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” – John Maxwell

“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” – The Golden Rule

These 3 quotes contain an abundance of wisdom – they remind us that when you care about others’ needs and desires, then others care about you. Not only do they care, but they demonstrate concern through helping you reach your desires and goals as well.

Sounds simplistic, doesn’t it? It’s not rocket science. Is it too simplistic and perhaps a bit naïve? Possibly. I can imagine someone out there saying, “If you show them even a moment of weakness they will stomp all over you.” Regardless of what those few naysayers may think, this concept really is a fundamental principle of life.

Did you notice I said “life” and not just in your career? When you learn how to care about others and keep their needs uppermost in your consciousness, you’ll discover a transformation in your career – and, indeed, in your personal life as well!

1 Week Challenge:

Use these 3 quotes as your filter. Every action you take, ask yourself if you are truly abiding by one or all three of these principles. See how it transforms your decision making and your perspective in how you treat others.

I promise if you make these concepts a long-term habit you will have an increase in the positive experiences in your life! You can read more great thoughts about ‘Relationships and Opportunities’ in chapter 12 of Jerry’s book. Download your free copy here:
