Learn more to earn more
Last weekend I was honored to speak at Vaughn Bethell’s Inside Out Mentoring Program. 15 fitness professionals from across the U.S. came for 2 days of training to grow their businesses. This group understood that to earn more you have to learn more. What do you need to learn more about?
When I teach I learn
For me, this event was another opportunity to not only teach, but also learn. The dirty secret about training is that the person delivering the instruction benefits most! When you hear yourself communicate truth, it pushes it deeper inside of you. One of the best ways to integrate information is to teach it. What do you need to teach someone?
Being generous opens you to receive more
Being generous with what I know qualifies me for greater insights. One of the foundational laws of the universe is found in the Book of Genesis, “You reap what you sow!” If you need more knowledge begin to sow information into others. It will come back to you. Just as a sponge can only retain a certain amount of water, our lives are the same way. There is only so much information you can contain, but when you release what you know, you gain capacity to receive more!
Serving information opens people’s hearts to you
Sowing information and knowledge into others is a fun way to serve people. It’s also what opens up their hearts and allows you to connect with them on a deeper level. If you’re having a challenge in developing a relationship, find a way to serve that person. Great connectors are great at finding creative ways to serve others. When you share what you know, you’ll find people opening their hearts to you!
Why do you need to teach?
- It qualifies you for more information
- It strengthens your connection with people
- It helps integrate what you know into action
What other reasons do you have for teaching?
