The Go-Giver Review: Five Laws of Stratospheric Success
Overall Ranking: 4.5 stars out of 5
Every Year Dave Ramsey does a sweepstakes and two years ago I went through and entered and won once of the “runner up” giveaways. He sent me a copy of a book called “The Go-Giver: A Little Story About a Powerful Business Idea”. I placed in on my shelf and figured I would eventually get to it. Then I heard someone else mention what it was about and it really piqued my interest and I re-prioritized my intentions with it, I’m glad I did.
The Go-Giver is one of those business parables filled with enriching thoughts that presents its ideas in the guise of a story. I just got done reading “The Conscious Creator” which is laid out in a similar way and with both these books the story affected me in a way that rings true deep within, though covering different aspects.
The “Go-Giver” covered five key principles that are based on the concept that your success comes from working with other people and giving them value, rather than trying to take all you can from the world while giving as little back as you can. The simple idea that you give as much as you can and you will get more back in return is a principle I teach throughout this website.
The Five Laws Of Stratospheric Success:
- The Law of Value: Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment.
- The Law of Compensation: Your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them.
- The Law of Influence: Your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people’s interests first.
- The Law of Authenticity: The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself.
- The Law of Receptivity: The key to effective giving is to stay open to receiving.
The story nicely demonstrates the meaning of these principles and which would be beneficial for any entreprenuer. I highly suggest entrepreneurs get a copy of “The Go-Giver” and dig into it.
