As someone who writes a blog it is probably of no surprise that I also enjoy reading. I primarily read or listen to audio books on personal development.
Psst…If this is your first time at my blog please read this post first.
The latest book I have read was recommended reading for my wife and I from a married couple we know who are a little older than us and a little closer to their personal goals. To put it another way, more successful than me and my wife.
My wife and I meet with them from time to time and share time talking about personal development, financial skills, and generally have a lot of fun with them.
You could say they are mentors for us as they are an example of how hard work and focusing on your personal growth can pay off.
The book they advised us to read is called the go giver and even though my wife and I had never heard of it apparently has been well received and reviewed.
The Go-Giver currently has a 5 star rating on Amazon with over 1400 reviews.
The book introduces you to a fictional character named Joe who is a salesperson who is referred to another man named Pinder through an associate he works with after asking for help landing a large client.
Pinder is a very different kind of business person than most people think of when they imagine a successful businessman.
Through Joes subsequent meetings with Pinder he meets other business owners who help teach Joe their fundamental beliefs that have helped them achieve their massive success in life.
1. THE LAW OF VALUE – Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment.
2. THE LAW OF COMPENSATION – Your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them.
3. THE LAW OF INFLUENCE – Your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people’s interests first.
4. THE LAW OF AUTHENTICITY – The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself.
5. THE LAW OF RECEPTIVITY – The key to effective giving is to stay open to receiving.
Since I do not want to spoil the book for anyone I don’t want to say too much more about it.
