The old economy of only taking and focusing on sales over customers has long gone. The new economy is the polar opposite of what the old one used to be.
The new economy focuses on generosity not scarcity. It focuses on giving not receiving. We need to fearlessly give away our creations to people without expecting anything in return. These are times when it’s not about making sales, it’s about making an impact and adding value to people’s lives.
These are the times of givers. Become one and you will win. As Zig Ziglar has said, “You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want.”
The new economy demands us to be human again. We need to have a personal connection with the people we serve.
The foundation of the economy we’re in is built on hearts not brains. We need to stop seeing people as numbers or stats and connect with them on a personal level. We need to bring humanity into the equation.
Focus on serving and add value, not noise. Only then, you’ll be among the front runners of the new economy.
Become a human of Wow. When we open ourselves and share our gifts and talents with others fearlessly, we start building trust and are able to have a lasting impact on this world.
In today’s economy, as we focus on contribution, impact and fearless giving, people will notice us sooner or later and get inspired to do business with us. Hence, it’s important that we perceive a perennial income as an inevitable by-product of our generosity and a love for our craft, not our main goal.
In other words, instead of figuring out how much revenue we’re generating, we need to ask ourselves what level of impact we’re making. This is the key to succeeding in the new marketplace we’re in.
