Recently, I received a great newsletter article from The Envy Generator and I thought it was totally worth sharing with all of you.
Money flows like a river.
The flow is constant and it quickly moves from one place to another. The question then is…”How to make a gate in this river so it re-directs the flow of money to you?”
The aim of your company is to effectively communicate AND deliver with INTEGRITY. This means constantly delivering a consistency of actions, values, methods, measures, principles, expectations, and outcomes.
The first part of integrity is doing what you say you are going to do. It is easy to ‘over-promise’ when enthusiastically telling someone what you can do for them, but you need to ensure that you have the architecture in place to then ‘over-deliver’ on that promise. The beauty of architecture is that you CAN over-engineer and design your business in a way that it cannot fail to deliver on your promise! What does your architecture look like?
Delivering with integrity also goes beyond ‘doing what you say.’ The truest form of delivering with integrity is all about who you are being when you do things. As you go through your day and deliver your service or sell your product, ask yourself: “Am I being of service to this person?” “Do I have their intentions at heart?”
Operating with integrity is all about being authentic and true to yourself and true to others. Being uncompromising to your mission will ensure you are delivering with integrity.
These 3 things: Differentiation, Communicating Effectively and Delivering with Integrity are the foundation for your gate that you are building in the flow of money. They will serve you well, if you work them!
