The Benefits Of Putting Other People Ahead Of You

The only way to succeed in life is to first help other people succeed. Lots of good people are not successful because they focus on themselves. It is not about you, it is about other people.

You cannot succeed alone. You need people to help you grow. You need their talents, their skills, their love, their relationships, their joy and kindness. But you cannot get these things if you don’t care about them.

If you want success, you have to first make other people succeed. If you want people to trust you, you have to first trust them. If you want people to open their minds, you have to first open your own mind.

To succeed in anything, don’t make it about you. It is not about you, it is about them- the people you are working with. When you add values to people’s lives, your life will be better.

Tell Yourself What You Need To Hear, Not What You Want To Hear

Honesty is the art of telling yourself what you don’t want to hear. To know yourself, you have to be honest with yourself. If you are honest with yourself, you will be honest with others. When you are honest with other people, they will trust you. They will do anything for you. They will help you succeed. They will trust you and comet to you when they are in trouble.

You cannot be successful in life without first being an honest person. Nobody wants to work with a dishonest supervisor, manager, or boss. As a boss or a manager, if your people don’t trust you, you have lost it all. They will keep sensitive organizational information to themselves. When they are in trouble, instead of coming to you, they will talk to their friends, seek outside help.

If you want them (your people) to trust you, don’t lie to them. How? Make it a habit to always tell them the truth, no matter what. When things are going well in your organization, let them know. When things are not going well in your organization, let them know. Make sure you keep your promise. Don’t say one thing today, and do another tomorrow. If you say you want to do A, do A. Don’t say A, and do B. They will not trust you when you say something like that next time.

If you want to achieve success with people, with yourself, you must be honest with yourself, and with the people you interact with on a daily basis. You cannot achieve success if you are a dishonest person. Start telling yourself the truth. Start telling yourself what you need to hear, not what you want to hear. There is growth in what you need to hear. There is a disaster in what you want to hear. What you need to hear reveals reality to you. What you want to hear, on the other hand, prevents you from facing your reality. Without facing your reality, there is no growth. If you want to grow, face reality. Ask yourself questions that will reveal your hidden secrets- your strengths and weaknesses.

If you want things to change in your life, start telling yourself the truth. The truth will set you free.
