I ran across this Quote the other day from John C. Maxwell. I thought it really pertained to what we do.
People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care. I call it the Law of Connection: You develop credibility with people when you connect with them and show that you genuinely care and want to help them. This is the power of influence. And, as a result, people usually respond in kind and want to help you. There’s an old saying, “To lead yourself, use your head; to lead others, use your heart.” ~ John C. Maxwell
Building relationships and helping others is what an enriched life is all about! You will be amazed at the powerful impact you can make in your life and the lives of others simply by focusing on “giving to give” rather than “giving to get.” Let’s set the business building component aside for a moment and talk about your personal life and personal relationships. I would wager that every single day “someone” pops into your mind and you think “Gee, I should reach out to her” or “I really need to tell him how much I appreciate….” And yet before you can act on that thought or prompting, you move on to other activities and never do it! What if you could send a beautiful card with your heartfelt message inside in under a minute? What if you could send a friend who is struggling with health issues a card letting her know that you are in her corner and encourage her? Or your family member who is going through a painful divorce? Or your high school teacher who encouraged you to set goals? A favorite aunt who was always there for you? The list goes on and on!
Don’t wait until people are in the grave to express how much they meant to you! Tell them while they are still alive to hear it!
Right now, while you are thinking about it, reach out to the person you thought of as you read this post! Pick up the phone. Write them a letter. Or, if you’d like to send them a beautiful card, let us help. Here’s just how easy it is – How to Send a Card & Gift.
