WHATEVER IT TAKES?


As a Networker have you ever said "I'll do whatever it takes"? You've certainly heard it. This was a recent post on BetterNetworker, with this question following: Do you think this willingness to do 'whatever' it takes to make it is part of what turns people off to us networkers?

First, I want to say that no matter how badly I need something, I am not willing to "do anything" to get it. "Anything" is a pretty big category. "Anything" could mean...anything!

What I am not willing to do:

I am not willing to compromise my principles or my faith.

I am not willing to do anything illegal.

I am not willing to sacrifice what is most precious in my life.

I am not willing to ride over others, to knock them down, to use them simply for my own benefit.

I am not willing to look at others merely as instruments to be discarded after I have what I want from them.

I do not want to succeed if I can't take others with me and show them how to succeed. No, I am not willing to "do whatever it takes".

What I am willing to do:

I am willing to work.

I am willing to ask for help.

I am willing to teach others what I have learned.

I am willing to live out my dream, to keep seeking it if I haven't found it yet.

I am willing to ask for guidance and direction when I am unsure of myself.

I am willing to learn new things.

I am willing to make changes where change is necessary to my success.

Remember, success cannot be measured merely on a financial basis. Zig Ziglar once said, "I believe that being successful means having a balance of success stories across the many areas of your life. You can't truly be considerd successful in your business life if your home life is in shambles."

Integrity is a must. If we do not operate on ethical principles and methods, eventually we will find others treating us in the same manner we treat them - unethically and without integrity. We may just find ourselves alone out there with no friends, no support. But when we reach out a hand to someone in need, there will be someone there to reach out a hand when we are in need. We will have lasting friendships and wonderful, caring business associates.

That is the true measure of success.
