The quickest way to attain success is to help others first.
An attribute of leaders is their innate ability to help others; Unfortunately, it doesn’t come as easy as one would think.
This kind of thinking is foreign to cultures that see the business world as a giant competition. They believe that there are those who win and those who lose. Therefore, the only way to get ahead is to look out for themselves.
This concept of helping others can be intimidating because in the moment it feels counter-intuitive to put the needs of others above your own.
“Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, ‘What’s in it for me?'” Brian Tracy
Leaders who know their own weaknesses and strengths look past themselves to help their employees grow.
They remove barriers, interpersonal conflict, obstacles, uncertainty, and roadblocks to help set others up for success.
