Even 2000 years ago, the Master Teacher was clear.
“So to as the body without spirit is dead, so too faith without works is dead.”
Faith without works is dead
Today is part 4 of the GIRAFFE philosophy: living your business with purpose and on purpose.
Think “Jerry Maguire” when Rod Tidwell and his wife ask, yelling, “What do you stand for?”
Can we answer that question if people ask us?
Sure, we can ‘say’ the usual stuff…helping others, building a team…but prospects know it’s bullshit and so do we. Isn’t that true?
People join people, not companies.
And it’s not just what we stand for that separates us from the pack of mantra-quoting bozos offering up a ‘feel good, sound good’ garbage. It’s do we live it?
Do we pass Emerson’s test?
“What you are screams so loud I can barely hear what you say.”
The “A” in GIRAFFE provides evidence that we are walking the talk
Take Action Steps Daily
No one takes action without a plan. Organized Planning, out of Think and Grow Rich is a must-read.
All you have to do is read it and do ‘OATS‘ every Friday, then duplicate that action by doing OATS with people 3 levels deep – HANDS-ON.
Don’t tell them to do it, do it with them.
O– Objectives – what, in writing are your objectives for the week?
A – Activities – What activities do you need, in writing, to complete the HIT the objectives?
T– Time – How much time will it take to complete the activities?
S– Schedule it – IN WRITING – the activities; if it isn’t written, it isn’t true.
Do this with yourself for a week or 2, making sure 80% or more of your time is focused on The Main Thing.
The Main Thing?
Distributors talking to non-distributors about the business.
From here work it 3+ levels deep, hands-on. Help others, hands-on, set up an 80% focused on the Main Thing schedule, every week.
The book is Think and Grow Rich. Think for a second. Can you see the power of helping others, hands-on, schedule their work weekly? With 80% of their time scheduled on the Main Thing and 80% of your time scheduled on the Main Thing, you’ll create compression in the timeline of achievement and bigger checks for your teammates.
Can you THINK of a single reason this isn’t a good idea that screams ‘do it now?’
