How to Add Value to Others

Every day I read a daily devotional from John Maxwell (Leadership Guru) called "Leadership Promised for Every Day". This one was too good not to share...I truly believe that if we are going to grow our at home businesses that we should also grow as leaders. So, here goes...

"And Jesus went about all Galilee, taching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing all kinds of sickness and all kinds of disease among the people."
~ Matthew 4:23

When people think about you, do they say to themselves, "My life is better because of that person?" Their response probably answers the question of whether you are adding value to them. To succeed personally, you must try to help others. That's why Zig Ziglar says, "You can get everything in life you want if you help enough people get what they want." How do you do that? How can you turn your focus from yourself and start adding value to others? You can do it by:

1. Putting others first in your thinking.
2. Finding out what others need.
3. Meeting that need with excellence and generosity.

(Failing Forward)
