To Get To Your Goals, Give More Than You Get
My work has afforded me the opportunity to get really close to elite athletes and see how it is they go about becoming great. Kasey Kahne and the Kasey Kahne Racing Team are my major clients. Not all of us will make our living driving a car at 200 mph against others doing the same. Still there is no denying that modeling the approach of the top performers in any field, especially their mindsets, is a smart move if we want to be elite, or just better, too.
It might surprise you to know that I think that one mindset difference between the most successful and fulfilled and those struggling, is simply whether they are coming at life from a giving or taking place. The best among us are givers. They concentrate on giving value to those around them. They know that the more they give, the more they get back. Focus on making everyone’s dreams come true and yours seem to automatically happen without effort.
Ray Kroc, whom I wrote about in a previous article, was the founder of the McDonald’s chain of restaurants. His focus was never on “selling” anyone on everything. Kroc became a billionaire and built a worldwide empire because he took the approach of a giver. He looked at all the ways he could give people what they coveted.
An elite athlete might seem like the most self-absorbed success there is. They work on “their” skills, “their” fitness, and are promoting “themselves” for greater gain. Yet, they are nothing without the fans. With no deep and rabid fan support, what they do is insignficant and just wouldn’t pay very well. There isn’t a move that Kasey Kahne makes with his career where he doesn’t focus on giving back to the fans. His efforts undertaken training in my program for motorcycle and race car drivers are about being a winner. Being a winner means being true to his duty to be the best and not cutting corners. He gives and gets back exponentially more from his supporters.
