Build Your Foundation On A Purpose, Cause and Belief
What foundational principles do you stand for? What principles will you teach your family, friends, co-workers, staff and team?
Build a foundation that people want to emulate and you will be a success. This is a true statement many believe and live by.
As a leader you want people to follow you because the examples you live, not just the words you use.
Look to any city skyline and you see tall multi-story building being built. For those building to stand, first the builders have to dig a deep foundation.
Same as a tree. If the roots are not deep it will topple over.
We humans are not different. If we want to communicate with our employees, business partners, spouses, friends or family we need to have a strong foundation that we can believe in and principles we can live by.
Foundation, What Is Yours?
Why do you stand on the principles you have? What principles do you live by? What do you do daily so you can succeed the way you want?
Foundation is knowing who you are and treating people the way they want to be treated.
No mater what you believe in or how set you in your ways you might be, you can always change who you are and the path you are taking.
We need to know what success principles we need to repeat daily and live by, so we can accomplish what we want.
Success Principles To Live By
With People And Yourself
Do you have a why? If you do then your on your path. If you do not have a why, grab a pen and paper. Stop reading this and search within yourself for your way. Once you have your why, come back to reading this article.
Your why should include connecting to people. This means listening to them with your ears, eyes and body language. After listening to people, if you say your going to do something, then do it.
Follow up with the people in a loving, honest and effective way. The goal here is to communicate that you want to see the person succeed.
It is important to engage in communication by having a friendly attitude. Be honest with your customers and use all the sales tools you have to problem solve. Remember your name is your brand and your credit card through life.
When you meet customers smile, shake hands, offer your name and ask for theirs. Make and keep eye contact, ask good questions. Do not lie just to make a sale. Become a trusted advisor people can trust.
When people trust you they send business referrals your way.
The foundation of good customer service is based on confirming the customers wants and needs. A successful sale happens when you understand your customers wants and needs. Then you offer a solution the customer can understand and use.
With Your Company
If you own a business, then you know the importance of having a vision and/or mission statement for your business. These two statements guide your every decision as you look to build your business reputation. This is the foundation your business stands on regardless of what happens.
If you see anyone at your company doing well, reward them. Sometimes a simple thank you will do and sometimes is it nice to give something that has a monetary value.
Your companies foundation is only as strong as the person with the weakest believes about what your company stands for.
With People And Yourself, Customers, Company And Staff
Depending on your situation you will need to use different techniques to find success. When you build the proper foundation you realize that what you do in one situation usually resembles what you would do in another.
When you have a good moral code behind your decisions you will see how that translates to every decision you make.
If you are not sure how to build the right foundation, talk to people who you feel have what you want.
Yes, you may need a mentor or coach to guide you. We all need to understand people, our personal life, our customers, our company and our staff.
Not all of us can see where we need guidance and many times we need support, so we can one day support others and help them build a strong foundation to stand on.
No matter your situation remember to be friendly, smile (if appropriate), be positive and stand on the principles you are building your life on.
Many of the principles outlined were thought to me in the homebuilding industry. When your job is to build home it is easy to understand the concept of building a foundation.
You can walk by any job site and see homes being built. All were in different stages so it is easy to understand the deeper levels of building a good foundation.
Everyone you meet is at a different building stage in life. Know the stage you are at and for each belief you have become strong rooted like a tree.
Like the roots of a tree, as people grow we become stronger and ground ourself deeper in to the foundation.
Know what your believe in and why. Make sure you ground yourself in the right place and build the right foundation for a successful life.
