Great Business Builders Help Build Lives – They Do Not Give Jobs

Great books are invaluable. When I really pay attention to my growing library of resources, messages come to me at the perfect time. “Pay attention to the messages your are intended to receive”! – one of my favorite lessons of all time and I believe it came from Conversations With God by Neale Donald Walsch.

In today’s world there is a lot of attention on the a challenging economic climate with high unemployment and underemployment. In the US many are in denial that America is in or near a depression. On the other hand there a many very prosperous people who continue to grow in prosperity because they follow Universal Laws. As soon as I write that you may want to tell me of those who do not follow any laws at all and who are making a lot of money. Money is not happiness—it beats the alternative but money does not buy happiness.

This morning I read this quote “Leaders help people with their lives” Jim Rohn I reflected on the great leaders I know and universally they help people with their lives by guiding them in all areas of their lives. I refer to the three pillars of life – health, relationships and money. Personally I know an number of very successful people in the network marketing industry. Their success is from teaching others how to network with others teaching them the value of moving forward and earning additional income that will help them and their families. In some case there are those that choose to make this a full time position. In all cases success is built by helping the individual grow and manifest their dreams. A person is blocked from that if they do not have physical energy or they are filled with toxins from stressful relationships.

Helping people build their lives and achieve their dreams is what great CEO’s do. I purposely used network marketing as my first example because that industry is rapidly becoming mainstream. Those who have negative perception of MLM are still living in a cave.

In his new book “Risky Is The New Safe” Randy Gage writes that the advice to “go to school, earn a degree get a job with a big company….might be the riskiest thing you can do” Look at the layoffs announced every week by big companies and you might agree. Randy is a major advocate of learning. I can tell by the books he writes he is voracious reader…we all should be.

Start thinking of ways you can be of more value to others. An important first step is to continue to develop your own knowledge and skills. Then as you confirm what is working for you, share with others. That is my formula and it serves me well.
