Be willing to give first, before you expect to gain. Like the farmer who must plant seeds before crops will grow, you must invest first. This is often difficult to follow if you grew up in a transactional culture; however, giving unconditionally yields the best results.
No one is successful by themselves. Learning to develop relationships, creating a support network, and always growing your business network are the keys to success in business and in life.
Your value grows as you develop your knowledge and skills. Our world is in a constant state of change. When you're learning, you're creating forward motion. Create a curriculum based on the person you want to become and follow that curriculum to get yourself there.
Traditions + Innovation
Traditions are your foundation. Innovations are your opportunities. Always keep your feet firmly planted with your traditions while you reach to the sky to create innovation.
Consistently finding the good in everything that occurs propels your life beyond setbacks. Those who see the best in situations, themselves, and others magnetically attract people, opportunities, and wealth.
The only way to build trust is to make promises and keep them. Rather than expecting others to believe and accept your word, demonstrate who you are. Do this by accepting leadership roles and following through on promises, even when it appears no one is looking.
Share your appreciation for others' accomplishments: for themselves, for you, and for your organization. Recognition is fuel that builds organizations and societies. The one who masters the art of recognition attracts a strong network.
