What Makes A Selfless Professional: 3 Points To Attract Professionals That Prioritize Your Needs

Posted by Aaron Walker and the VFTT Team on Jul 2, 2021 9:00:39 AM

Try not to become a man of success, but a man of value. Look around at how people want to get more out of life than they put in. A man of value will give more than he receives.


In your career, how many of your projects achieved outstanding results because of strong relationships? How critical were your partner's efforts in the success of your goals? Do you wonder what other projects can radically grow because you rely on quality professionals?

Every business owner understands their ability to succeed rests on the quality of people in their lives. The better they treat their employees and peers, the more significant profits they'll achieve from projects.

When you think about someone, do you ask yourself, "How do I feel when I'm with this person?" Would you take time out of the day for them? Rumi says, "What you seek is seeking you." You’ll attract the people you want in your life when you build up value within yourself.

Professionals never gain beneficial relationships if they never provide something valuable to others. When people focus on solution-driven results, they manifest transformational relationships.

Imagine a retail employee asks to give his friend a 10% discount on a phone, but his boss refuses the deal and won't get creative to produce value from the sale. This "what's in it for me?" mentality only attracts like-minded individuals into your team. Though the boss played by the rules, he missed out on a sale as well as a potential long-term customer.

People make boneheaded decisions like that all the time. These mindsets feel transactional and limit you from achieving your goals. They are takers, not givers.

Great success comes to our business when we hire qualified people to accomplish our goals. If we take time to understand how to approach relationships and see how easy it is to connect with anyone!

Attract The Right People

Albert Einstein said, "Try not to become a man of success, but a man of value. Look around at how people want to get more out of life than they put in. A man of value will give more than he receives."

Professionals understand that to achieve business success; they must be nice to people on their way. Because when they're on their way down, they'll end up meeting them again.

When entrepreneurs create their first business, most crash within their first year because they don't rely on qualified "Whos." And even worse, they lack a clear vision that aligns with employee's objectives and helps them achieve what they want.

If you want to be highly successful, you'll get paid for who you are. When you prioritize other people's goals, they will make it their objective to accomplish your goals too!

3 Points To Be Valuable As A Transformational Leader

In their book, Who Not How, Dan Sullivan and Dr. Benjamin Hardy guide us through 3 points on how to manifest value for others to achieve long-lasting success.

1. "What's In It For Me?"

Dan Sullivan says, "I don't want to work on a relationship. I want a relationship that works." These words guide every client of Dans to create transformational relationships.

Earlier, we mentioned the question, "What's in it for me?" and how it attracts like-minded individuals into our projects. We can see how this mindset encourages selfishness and promotes destructive habits within the work environment.

High-value professionals ask themselves the question, "What's in it for them?" They understand that to achieve success, they must have the mindset of accomplishing other people's goals before their own.

2. Offer Something Valuable In Their Lives

When you start a romantic relationship, it’s easy to give to your significant other. It’s because you see your sweetheart give back the same love. The same principle in relationships applies in business.

It becomes a challenge to keep a selfless mindset when you become successful in your life. Whether we selfishly desire fame, money, or relationships, we can quickly revert to the question, "What's in it for me?"

The solution to this problem is to offer people something meaningful and continually create value in your relationships. Professionals give something "real and relevant" to their needs.

3. Show Gratitude For Your "Whos"

William James says, "The deepest craving of human nature is the need to be appreciated." So if you're a millionaire on Wall Street or a single mother who works three jobs to pay bills, everyone needs gratitude.

A grateful, appreciative person attracts others who want to help them. People will gravitate towards you when you sincerely thank them in specific ways for the work they do for you.

Being grateful goes a long way. You'll become kinder, humbler, and a happier person. You'll attract the right "Whos" in your life because gratitude meets people's needs.

A selfless professional manifests a positive work environment and encourages his team to adopt the same mindset. Your projects will achieve outstanding success when you nurture your team first! When you apply these principles to your life, they'll carry you straight towards your goals.

As you work through this, you'll need other professionals who can help you prioritize a team-oriented mindset that will lead towards maximum success. Reach out to us at our website and apply to join one of our mastermind groups online.
