The partners at Trilogy are always looking for new books that inspire us as well as our clients. Recently, the team came across The Go-Giver by Bob Burg and John David Mann. Dubbed as “a little story about a powerful business idea,” the book will transform your thinking about how to grow your business and generally be happier in just a few hours of an easy read.
The main point of the story is to learn the power of transformation from being a “go-getter” to a “go-giver.” By learning how to give, serve and make a positive impact, you will see success is not about “you,” it’s about empowering others.
The book lays out Five Laws of Stratospheric Success, each designed to help broaden horizons and land bigger opportunities:
The Law of Value – Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment.
The Law of Compensation – Your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them.
The Law of Influence – Your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people’s interests first.
The Law of Authenticity – The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself.
The Law of Receptivity – The key to effective giving is to stay open to receiving.
With over 25 years of experience consulting with various businesses, Trilogy recognized right away that the fifth Law of Stratospheric Success is the most difficult—the Law of Receptivity. The main reason is that most people in business aren’t usually comfortable enough with themselves to ask for help. Like the main character, you might already think you are receptive, but you might not have seen the big rewards that come with simply asking for help.
