What do people really want?

What do people really want? How do people want to be treated? How do you treat people? How do you treat yourself?

Simple but difficult questions for lots of people to answer. Why?

Because we are human beings with all kinds of assumptions. We think we know want people really want. We think everyone wants the same thing. We think we can meet the needs of everyone with a one-size-fits-all approach.

The reality is, “we don’t really know what people want.” If you want to know what people really want and need, don’t assume, ask them. Just ask them. And they will tell you exactly what they want.

As human beings. we crave for one thing. We want to be respected. This is a huge thing for lots of people to do, including business executives. People want to be respected, they want to be heard, and they want to be appreciated.

Theodore Roosevelt said, “People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care.” If you are a business owner, respect your people, listen to your people, appreciate your people, let them know that their efforts are appreciated. You don’t need a consultant to tell you how to respect your people. No, you don’t.

Respect is a two-way business. If you respect people, they will respect you back. If you don’t respect them, they will disown you before you even know it.

People want respect more than you think. Give it to them.

Where you are today was created yesterday

Where you are today was created yesterday. What are you creating right now? Are you creating the life you have always wanted? Are you preparing for that job interview? Or, Are you just wishing tomorrow will be better than today?

You can wish all you like. If you don’t prepare for what you want, what you want will never happen. Wishing cannot change your life. Your life will change if you have the courage to take action, to prepare. You prepare for what you want and need in your life. You can’t get it by just wishing to get. You succeed by working hard and smart for what you want.

You cannot grow more than your thinking. If want to do great things in life, don’t wish for it, plan for it.

“It is never too late to plant a new seed.”

What you are doing today will lead you to that place you want to be tomorrow. You are making your tomorrow today. If you want your tomorrow to be better, you must do great things today. If you want to be financially free, start saving money today. Stop spending more than you earn. If you want to work for a great corporation tomorrow, start studying hard and smart today. If you want to live in peace, start giving people peace. If you want to be happy, start making people happy. If you want to be healthier, start balancing your diet. If you want to own a business, start planning for it today. Whatever you are doing right now, you will get the results tomorrow.

“It is never too late to change your life.”

James Joyce said, “I am tomorrow, or some future day, what I established today. I am today what I established yesterday or some previous day.”

What you are reaping today was the seed you planted yesterday. What you will reap tomorrow is what you are planting today. Whatever you sow, you will reap. If you sow something good, you will get something good. If you sow something bad, guess what, you will reap something bad.

“It is never too late to build a new career.”

Today, I encourage you to check the things you have been doing to yourself. It is never too late to plant a new seed. It is never too late to build a new career. It is never too late to meet a new person. It is never too late to change your life. It is never too late to change your mind- from negative to positive. It is never too late, and it will never be too late.
