Zig Zigler is famously quoted as saying “You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want.” If that seems counterintuitive to you, then this tiny gem of a book is perfect for you.
Told as a parable, the story highlights what happens when you decide to be a Go Giver instead of a go-getter. Go-getters work harder, feeling stressed and overwhelmed. When you change the focus to Go-Giving, you’ll be amazed at how much your stress reduces while your productivity increases.
The first law of Go Givers is The Law of Value: Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment. Notice it doesn’t say you give for free – it simply points out that when people feel they got a great deal from you, they are inclined to give back to you and pay it forward too.
