Power has a lot of connotations.
Some see it as a good or bad thing.
Some see it as a tool.
I see power as the ability to get what you want.
Do I have your attention?
Look, everybody wants something, there’s no doubt about that.
Not everyone gets it though.
I must admit, I don’t always get what I want but…
That’s not the issue.
The issue is ; How do you close the gap between where you are and where you want to be.
Well, in my experience, it requires only two simple things ;
1. It requires that you never quit on the goal or what you want : If you quit, you’ll never know. If you quit on it, you’ll never have it.
I’ve quit on a number of things, but the thing is ; If it means a lot to you, you mustn’t quit on it.
Stick with it, use creative methods not unethical ones, and you’ll eventually hit your target.
2. Help others : Before you roll your eyes or leave this page, pay attention to this ;
“If you help others get what they want, you’ll end up getting yours” – Steve Jobs
Steve Jobs was a man of influence and power and he definitely knew what he was talking about right there.
I didn’t understand the above quote in the beginning but when I put my ego, selfish interest, and “too-know” attitude aside, it finally clicked!
“Don’t try to be a man of success but rather, try to be a man of value” – Albert Einstein.
When you put yourself out there as a person of service, you put yourself out there as a person of value.
A person of value, always attracts what he wants, instead of pursuing.
A person of value or in position of power seldom puts himself in a situation of unnecessary pressure.
He puts himself in a position of power.
When you help people get what they want, they see you in a different light.
Learn to figure out what the other party wants, and help them get it or give them a tool or find a way to advance their progress.
Are you with me?
Give to get. Help to be helped.
Humans are creatures of reciprocity.
Help them get what they want and they will definitely help you get what you want.
You don’t have to be the president of a nation to be regarded as powerful.
You have to be authentic, have integrity, be willing to help others get what they want and don’t quit.
Remember ; “Winners never quit and quitters don’t win”.
