What We Can Learn About Networking From Zig Ziglar - Importance of Giving

With the recent passing of one of our Country’s great leaders and motivational speakers, Zig Ziglar, I thought it was appropriate to share one of my favorite quotes of his:

“You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want.” – Zig Ziglar

In my previous post I talked about the importance of having a Giving Mindset not only during the holidays but all year.  I discussed how I wish more people had a focus on giving first in business, and networking, because if they did they would always have the referrals they desire.

Whenever you read, or listen, to some of the most successful people in our country you will always see the same theme.  Every time they will mention the importance of giving.

This pertains to every aspect of our lives and that includes in business and networking.  It is vital to our personal success that we make it a goal to help others achieve their desired level of success.  This is absolutely a win-win scenario.

It is also important that we realize that unfortunately most people don’t think this way.  Most of the people you will network with this year are focused on trying to get something out of people and not looking at what they can provide.  That is just the way our society is, but it is OK as long as we look to help them achieve that goal.  It is when we begin asking them how we can help them that suddenly we will standout.  We will sound so different from others that we will be remembered, and when it comes to most types of networking that is a major goal!

Over the next few posts we will be visiting other Zig Ziglar quotes and how the pertain to networking, but I could not think of a better quote to begin with.
