The Go Giver Review:
The Go Giver is a wonderful story that challenges our approach to life. It also challenges us in our interactions with others. The values presented in this story help shift our focus away from ourselves to others. Instead of trying to get ahead by our own efforts, we should provide value to others abundantly. This shift in focus makes a world of a difference, and I have already seen a massive improvement in my life.
This book has taught me:
The more value we create and share with others, the more value we will see in return!
Another key takeaway is that we work for 3 reasons:
- To Survive – to meet our own basic needs to live
- To Save – to grow beyond our basic needs and expand our lives
- To Serve – making a contribution to the world around us, finding purpose beyond ourselves
I couldn’t put down The Go Giver when I started reading it. It is a very easy read at 123 pages and written with a captivating narrative. It is a powerful casual read. It’s very easy to read cover to cover, as the narrative unravels.
Bob Burg and John Mann have done an amazing job with this story. It touches many others and improves their personal and business lives.
I highly recommend grabbing a copy of this book! In the spirit of the book, give it to someone you care about after you are done reading!
The Go Giver Book Overview:
The Go Giver is a story about an ambitious man named Joe who aspires to become successful. Joe is a real go-getter. Even though he sometimes feels as if the harder and faster he works, the further away his goals seem to be.
One day, desperate to land a key sale at the end of a bad quarter, he seeks advice from the enigmatic Pindar, a legendary consultant referred to by his many devotees simply as the Chairman.
Over the next week, Pindar introduces Joe to a series of “go givers:” a restaurateur, a CEO, a financial adviser, a real estate broker, and the “Connector,” who brought them all together. Pindar’s friends share with Joe the Five Laws of Stratospheric Success and teach him how to open himself up to the power of giving.
Joe learns that changing his focus from getting to giving—putting others’ interests first and continually adding value to their lives—ultimately leads to unexpected returns.
Imparted with wit and grace, The Go Giver is a heartwarming and inspiring tale that brings new relevance to the old proverb “Give and you shall receive.”
