If You Want to Help People

Here's one of the most important motivational quotes you'll ever hear. It's from American author and poet, Maya Angelou, who said…

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."


That's powerful.

And it's true.

Don't you think this is worth remembering when you work with your clients?

What they want is to be recognized and appreciated, because most people don't get that at home or at work.

But if they get it from you, they'll stay with you forever.

Now I've got another one for you…

"You cannot brighten another's path without lighting your own." - Frank McKinney

There's a big lesson here for you…

…if you want to improve yourself, then you MUST become a teacher and mentor to MORE people.

The teacher always learns as much, if not more, than the student.

And the more you learn, the more you can help others, and the positive cycle continues, making you better and better at what you do, and allowing you to help more and more people.

Changing someone else's life will change yours for the better, too.

Q: Hi Craig, what do you personally do when everything is going against you and how do you keep your persepctive? thanks - Rachel

Focus on my vision, remember my network of people I don't want to let down, and realize that nothing bad lasts forever. That's why one of my motto's in life is "It will all be over soon". Both good times and bad, so enjoy them all.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
Measure PROGRESS, not perfection. Understand you will never reach perfection...but you must celebrate your journey as you improve from point A to point B. Make each day better than your last.

Everything ends at some point. Good times and bad. So persevere through the hard times knowing they will, and be present and enjoy the good times a little more than you might be doing right now.

Finally, I'm reading a new book called, "Start With Why". It explains that Martin Luther King had a DREAM, not a boring old plan. Having a dream inspired people to follow him. You can also find out more in Simon Sinek's TED presentation here
