It seems - providing advice on how to succeed is nowhere near as difficult as helping people succeed.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Most people have lots of advice [opinions, suggestions, criticisms, commands, etc.] to share with others.

Few people edit/tailor their communications to actually help others. 

***

For decades, sales people have been taught: "Sell, Don't Tell".

That sales education aligns with this Thought Tweet. In sales, people are taught to give consideration to the other party's needs.

"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader."

John Quincy Adams

If you are uncomfortable with your work, that's contagious. If you enjoy your work, that's contagious.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

What type of attitude are you spreading?

How much is your attitude affecting the people you work with?

Are you inspiring people & growing profits?

Plan to repeat, repeat, repeat...that's one key to teaching, inspiring, & influencing people.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."

Benjamin Franklin

When we observe repetition, we learn.

When we repeat, others have the opportunity to learn.

Inspire business people by letting them know that you know what they do when they are at work.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

If you believe people know what you do when you are at work then check again...you may be quite surprised to find others have a very fuzzy impression of your work. Or, they may know almost nothing about your work.

You do not have to emulate them...you can stand out...you can ask them and learn what they do...then you can know what they do...and they will appreciate you for it.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Of course, Sir Winston Churchill comes to mind, “Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.” 

Churchill, singularly, inspired a nation.

But, there's more to it...

Churchill inspired himself. 

[...in support of inspiration and daily affirmations]


Be nothing if not courageous.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

It's about personal values

  • If we are not courageous, what of value do we have to offer to others?
  • If we are not courageous, what of value do we have to offer to ourselves?
  • If we are not courageous, how do we take chances, fail, learn and grow?
