Helping Others in 3 Steps
Have you ever felt the desire to help others?
Do you want to help them figure things out? Make more money? Recover from a bad experience?
Maybe you want to make a difference in the world yourself.
I’ve always believed that our power to help others is a side benefit of being ourselves – and having a structure to follow –
1) A person in need desires an outcome. It makes no sense to offer advice until we know what they are seeking. That puts us on the same page.
2) Next, find out the problems they have, the actions taken, and what was the result. Then, relate them to what you have found works.
3) Now that you’ve heard their struggle, you can make specific recommendations that will move their life in a positive direction.
Helping others is a lot like being a Doctor. Listen. Examine. Prescribe. Take action. Follow up.
