Who are you helping?

One of my favorite mentors once taught me that “You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want,”…

now some of my mentors are real live teachers of mine, and others, like the one that taught me this principle, were mentors via book, audio and video lessons.

The mentor was the late, great Zig Ziglar; mentor to me and millions of aspiring leaders over his years.


I am blassed indeeed because my team and I get to help so many others to accomplish their wildly important goals.

Some come for fitness, some for focus, others for discipline, confidence, respect or self control in their kids.

Many come to learn real world self defense.


My team and I get to help all of them to get what they want!

On top of that, I get to help my team get what they want.

Some come and work through high school, college or another season of life- some want a career.

I get to help each and all of them get what they want too!


And by helping others get what they want, I get, like Zig said, what I want in life.

So my two questions for you are:

  1. Who are you helping?
  2. How do I, or how can I, help you?
