Wondering how to get what you want in life or in business? Struggling to meet your goals? Zig Ziglar had it right. You can get everything you want in life if you will just help enough other people get what they want. In this episode, I talk all about how this applies to your business. All this and more on the Late Night Internet Marketing Podcast.
You can have everything you want in life.
Too good to be true?
Let’s hear it from directly from Zig Ziglar: “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want”.
This is true in your personal life, true in your family life, and true in your corporate life. This is the most influential statement that I have come across and it has left a tremendous impact in my life. But what does this philosophy mean? Is it really that simple?
First off, you really need to understand what it is that you truly want. For people building an online business, the motivation can be the negative things in their life: running away from a job, debt, or a boss. But as people get more sophisticated, the motivation becomes being successful at getting the things that they want to have more of, becoming closer to what they want to become, doing what they want to do, and achieving what they want their life to mean.
How do we do that? What does it really mean to have a successful business? One kind of success is the number of times you have helped people and another kind is financial success and they can complement each other.
The more successful you are in your business financially, the more people you can help. You will be able to reach more people thereby getting your message out further. This is the essence of what Zig was saying.
“…if you will just help other people get what they want.” – What do people want? In our case, it's what our customers want. They want us to solve their problem. If they see fit to give us their money, the goal is to help them get what they want to the best of our ability.
This is a serve-first mentality, and this is the thing that a lot of people are missing. When they start a business, some people think about is generating some money. But this should not be the case, it should be all about value proposition.
