How in the world can you have no expectations in business and expect to win?
It’s simple, and I’m about to teach it to you in less than 2 minutes.
Business is All About High Expectations
Obviously business is highly competitive. Tracked by metrics and KPIs. At times it almost feels like it’s life or death!
Having high expectations is the name of the game…RIGHT?
After all, the higher your expectations, the better your teams performance.
Those high expectations motivate, hold accountable, and create winning cultures.
If you’re not expecting greatness, you’ll never achieve it.
So Here’s The Secret
Business is disproportionately about PEOPLE.
As we lead and influence others, we end up giving so much of ourselves to them and their progress.
You have to have NO EXPECTATIONS that anyone “pays you back” for that selflessness.
That’s not to say that you WON’T be paid back.
Because you will be!
Your efforts to invest in others will end up helping you in the long run.
But you can’t place that expectation on the person that you helped!
You see, the recipe is simple…
Give, give, give, give, give, give, give, give….
Whether it’s a customer you went out of your way for, a peer that you stayed late to help, or a subordinate that you practiced patience with…
When you GIVE with NO EXPECTATION you will win with people. That, in turn, will cause you to win in business.
