“But Bob, does being a go-giver work in the real world?”
I was asked this question this week by two different interviewers. One said a friend of his wouldn’t even pick up the book because, as he put it, “I don’t have time to be a go-giver — I’m too busy trying to make a living.”
Ohhhh-kay. To use a question most recently brought to the forefront by Dr. Phil, “So, how’s that working for you?” ☺ (And as the interviewer acknowledged to me, that person is not very successful.)
One of the great pleasures John and I have had is in receiving emails from people ranging from captains of industry to hugely successful salespeople telling us that they’ve built their business based on the principles contained in the book . . . they just didn’t have a name for it.
I’ve been asked, “Why didn’t you and John provide examples of successful go-givers at the end of your book?”
Well, because the book is a parable, a story. But this blog doesn’t have that limitation! So in future postings, we’ll bring you examples of people who’ve been there and done that — real live people who exemplify the five laws of stratospheric success.
I’ll bet you know some great examples too. Can you think of any you’d like to share here?
