Think Right Toward People. 

Here is a basic rule for winning success. Let’s mark it in the mind and remember it. The rule is: Success depends on the support on other people. The only hurdle between you and what you want to be is the support of others.

~ David J. Schwartz, The Magic of Thinking Big

 

Spend some time each day answering this question: “How can I give more than is expected of me?” Then apply the answers.

Put service first and money takes care of itself.

In quick recap grow attitudes that will carry you forward to success.

  1. Grow the “I’m activated” Results come in proportion to enthusiasm invested. Three things to do to activate yourself are:
    1. Dig Into It Deeper. When you find yourself disinterested in something, dig in and learn more about it. This sets off enthusiasm.
    2. Life up. Everything About You: your smile, your handshake, your talk, even your walk. Act alive.
    3. Broadcast good news. No one ever accomplished anything positive telling bad news.
  2. Grow the “You are important” attitude. People do more for you when you make them feel important. Remember to do these things:
    1. Show appreciation at every opportunity. Make people feel important.
    2. Call people by name.
  3. Grow the “Service first” attitude, and watch money take care of itself. Make it a rule in everything you do, give people more than they expect to get.

People who do not have a deep-down feeling of self-importance are slated for mediocrity. Again and again this point must be driven home: You must feel important to succeed. Helping others to feel important rewards you because it makes you feel more important. Try it and see.

Here’s how to do it:

  1. Practice Appreciation
  2. Practice Calling People by Their Names.
  3. Don’t Hog Glory, Invest It Instead.
