It is natural for us, as humans, to always search for shortcuts. We always seek the faster track, we always seek the secret to success. In this article, I’ll talk about the 5 Laws Of Stratospheric Success from the book The Go-Giver. I highly recommend that you give this book a read because it is a mindset shifter, but it’s a really quick read. I personally have read this book multiple times, because it is so valuable as well as so much fun to read. It is written in the form of a novel, so you can actually identify with the main character and understand his situation that might be very much relatable to your situation at the moment. As I have already mentioned, it is a very short read. For those of you who are faster readers, you’ll probably finish the book in less than 2-3 hours. However, these 3 hours can change the way you see success. Now, let’s look at some of the value bombs from the book!
The Law Of Value
According to the first law, our true worth is determined by how much more we give in value than we take in payment. This is very much applicable in the business world, but also in your personal life. As I have mentioned in one of our articles where I talk about some strategies to improve your relationships, people should leave you happier than they were when they came. This goes for any situation. You want to give in value as much as you can without expecting much in return. When you give, you also attract. This is the true power of giving. Give as much as you can and don’t expect much in return and you’ll be surprised how you’ll start attracting awesomeness into your life (in any form you wish).
The Law Of Compensation
This law states that your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them. This should be a no-brainer. However, there are many who look to gain from people. There are many who look to serve others only when it benefits them. It is said that it is our nature to be self-centred and “rational” when it comes to making choices. However, many great economists like Richard Thaler who focus on the question of rationality and human beings argue that we are actually not as rational as we thought. For more info about this specific area, take a look into the book called The Nudge. At the end of the day, whether it is natural or not doesn’t matter. The bottom line is, the more people you serve and the better you serve them, the higher your income will be and the better your life will be.
The Law Of Influence
Through this law, the authors of the book argue that your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people’s interests first. I strongly believe that real success does not come from materialistic things. It comes from within and from the number of people you’ve helped to live the life they want to live. In other words, you need to focus on the interests of others, help them reach their goals and you will gain influence, a following and you will reach the top of the Maslow’s pyramid of needs and wants. The true definition of success is the number of people you have helped live a better life. The greatest leaders are so great because they serve others greatly.
The Law Of Authenticity
The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself, period. I always talk about focusing on yourself first, growing yourself first. If you make it happen within, without will be simple. If you learn to grow yourself and if you understand that you are capable of anything you set your mind to, you will nail this law. When people ask, what is it that you have to offer? Let me tell you, the most valuable thing you have to offer is YOU.
The Law Of Receptivity
The final law of success from this book states that the key to effective giving is to stay open to receiving. You are there to give, but so are other people. There is a universal cycle that runs with no stopping. Don’t break it. In order for all the other laws to work, you also have to be willing to receive. Don’t be ashamed of receiving the value others are offering to you. Don’t break the cycle of giving and receiving.
