Ok so in case you are visiting this blog for the 1st time (welcome welcome), or back here for the 100th time (welcome back), but didn’t read my email, I’d like to recap it in a nut shell…
I’m going through a period of reflection now (which I tend to do once or twice a year), where I’m evaluating what’s most important to me, why I do what I do, and ultimately am on a quest to confirm that I’m serving my ‘purpose’ in life and fulfilling my mission.
(FYI – My purpose is to serve God, provide for my family, and empower others to achieve greatness…My mission is to give back!)
That’s the short version anyway.
And the reason I’m opening up to you about this as opposed to a real estate money making strategy, is because no matter how many money-making strategies you learn and apply, if you don’t reflect on who you are, and what you are called to do, then you’ll never find true happiness.
You agree with me? If not, you soon will. Stick with me…
2 things got me really thinking about this:
The first, is always asking myself thought-provoking questions? It’s how I self-reflect.
TIP: Asking the right questions and allowing your conscious and sub-conscious mind to search for the answer is a very powerful. I encourage you to try it.
The second reason I’m currently going through this period of self-reflection is because of a book I devoured in less than 3 days.
It’s called “The Go-Giver”, and I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend you get, and read it YESTERDAY!
You can pick it up at Amazon here
In speaking to my life coach about this book, I realized that this book encapsulates my mission in life. It’s congruent with who I am, and gives me a blueprint on how to carry out my mission.
So here are some quick takeaways from this book:
The 5 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 most 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 can write a book about the above, but I think it’s pretty self-explanatory.
I challenge you to find a way to apply these laws in your daily life (business and personal). Just test them out. You might be surprised
One final key takeaway is that at the end of the day, the key to success in in GIVING! Put others interests before your own, and everything else will fall into place.
Now this doesn’t mean you can sit on your ass and do nothing all day but Give. But to quote Zig Ziglar, “The key to having everything you want in life, is to make sure others have everything they want“.
