Have you ever “asked” for answers to some of your life’s pressing questions? You know, the ones which you must find the answer to, but somehow you can’t figure it out, and then it can get very frustrating! 😡 Well, I have been there many times, and I remember what Jim Rohn says “Don’t get frustrated, get fascinated”! Fascinated that the answer is so close, if I just release my resistance and “ask” for the answers and surrender.
I recently found myself in this situation again, and began to surrender and ask for the answers. Believe me, I know it sounds too simple, however, it works every time. This is where the quiet time I described in the “Slow Down” post will really assist you in finding those answers.
I Listened To My Answers
One of the interesting things has been Personal Development books which I have read many times in the past, coming back into my life. One of them is called “The Greatest Networker in the World” by John Milton Fogg.
I have the hard copy book and I read it more than once back in the late 90’s, however, I was lead to John’s website http://www.thegreatestnetworker.org, and his website was filled with fascinating information! One of the pages offered a free audio and e-book of “The Greatest Networker in the World”, and I decided to re-listen to his very famous book once again.
The Light Bulb Went On
Here are some of the key points I learned from “The Greatest Networker In The World”:
1. There is nothing which you now know, and nothing about what you think you don’t know, that will help you create the success you desire. The key to your success lies only in what you don’t know that you don’t know. 😯
2. Make sure everyone has fun; teach them all you can; make sure they develop as an individual and as a member of the team; win when you can.
3. Give people what they want; provide them the level of support, and give them the time and attention that is appropriate for where they are and what they want to accomplish.
4. Be very clear about what you want. I.e. I want leaders who will duplicate themselves.
5. Work on establishing habits of belief that support them in becoming all they truly want to achieve.
6. People must be taught to teach others to succeed.
7. You take a stand for people. You champion them and their success. The shortest and most direct way of doing that is to teach them to teach others.
8. Sometimes taking a stand for people requires your giving people a rough time. Sometimes, being stretched hurts, especially if your mind isn’t flexible and isn’t used to it. Another benefit of working on your habits of belief is that you get used to stretching on purpose and it makes you mentally flexible.
