Five Laws Of Giving
April 24, 2023
Can we all adopt some laws and principles to create a successful and fulfilling life and career?
I got an answer to this question when I recently read “The Go-Giver” by Bob Burg and John David Mann. The book presents a philosophy of success based on giving rather than taking. The authors outline the philosophy as the Five Laws of Success.
Here is a summary of the Five Laws Giving:
- The Law of Value: Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment. This law emphasizes the importance of providing exceptional value to your customers or clients, ultimately leading to success.
- The Law of Compensation: Your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them. This law highlights the idea that success results from serving others and creating value for them.
- The Law of Influence: Your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people’s interests first. This law stresses the importance of putting others’ needs and interests before your own and building genuine relationships based on trust and mutual benefit.
- The Law of Authenticity: The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself. This law emphasizes the importance of being true to yourself, your values, and your mission and aligning your actions with your beliefs.
- The Law of Receptivity: The key to effective giving is to stay open to receiving. This law reminds us that giving and receiving are two sides of the same coin, and we must be open to receiving to truly give.
This book echoes another brilliant work, “Give and Take” by Adam Grant, which also emphasizes the value of giving for success in life and career.
To experience lasting success, embrace the Five Laws of Success: Give generously, Serve selflessly, Build Relationships genuinely, Be True to Yourself, and stay open to Receiving.
