Like blood flowing through your arteries bringing oxygen to your cells, career success requires a complex network of connections that will deliver opportunities to each other. And like your body, your network is a detailed ecosystem. If one area breaks down, the whole being can be slowed down by illness.
Are you the weak link in your network? Are you contributing to the well being of others?
Most people like the idea of helping people. They talk about it, but when the chance arrives where they can make an introduction, a referral, or just sing the praises of someone...many drop the ball. They are either too busy to notice the importance of the connection or they get a ping of "what's in it for me?".
In our society, especially in though economic times, people have become very self-focused. We cannot avoid it. We are all guilty (I am not preaching here... this is as much a reminder for myself). Everyone is trying to find their own way in the world, which makes it easy to forget that we might hold the key that opens the door for another person's victory.
Discover how you can reap more rewards by helping others. The cliche "a rising tide raises all ships" is true (most cliches are). When you are a catalyst for good, then you will also be the recipient of good.
The most successful people (financially, emotionally and spiritually) not only focus on their own victories, but seek out situations where they can launch others to victory. Opportunities to make a difference exist.
What do you think? Who do you know what are true "catalysts for good"? Do you just say you want to help people succeed or do take action?
Have A Great Day.
