The Secret to Getting What You Want

Turns out, that secret is to give others what they want

What Do You Get?

So often when I talk with people at conferences, their focus is “What do you get?” It was a delight to spend time with some people whose focus was “What can I give?”

I had the privilege of peforming MC duties for 250 women attending the Emerald Community Girls Big Night In (a Cancer Council fundraiser) and the following night performing the same duties for 150 people at the Big Brother Big Sister Awards night (pictured above). We heard some great stories of people who willing gave of themselves only to feel like they get so much more in return.

The work place is the same. You need to give to others on the team before you will get what you want. Unfortunately, too many people are focussed on the payrise, the position or the next political move rather than, how can I help my customers, my team and my business get what they need and want.

Zig Ziglar said, “The best way to get what you want is to help others get what they want.”

If you shift your focus from “What Do I Get” to “What Can I Give”, you will be amazed and how good you feel and what will get dropped in your lap.
