Managing the ATTENTION as a Leader

The title of this blog is managing attention as a leader in business.

I went to mass today and then the last one of the readings was quite interesting, because it said, in my own words, it said, those who boast, they will be humbled and those were humble, they will be raised up. And I thought, hmm, isn't it interesting? Wouldn't it this law or this rule also apply in our home based business? So there is like two groups of leaders in network marketing out there.

There's one group who are blowing their own trumpet, who are putting themselves up on a pedestal all the time, and telling the world how great they are, how amazing they are and how beautiful they are and what geniuses they are. And there's nothing wrong with that. It's totally cool. You can definitely do that if you want, but then there's another group of leaders who instead of blowing their own trumpet, instead of trying to tell everybody how amazing they are. Instead they do something else. They manage their attention.

Imagine that the attention of other people was like a spotlight. Like that that big Batman lamp, before they put the baton it, they have this huge spotlight and you can control it. You can point that spotlight wherever, wherever you want. So one option would be to turn it around and point it at yourself so everybody can see you from far, far away how amazing leader you are etcetera. And that's one way of doing it right. And there's a lot of people who do that and they do it very successfully. But what I've seen super successful leaders do is use that spotlight and point it on to other people.

So every call they do, every training they do, every big stage speech they do, every recognition they do, what they’re always trying to do, they’re trying to lift others up. They’re trying to be humble, and say, hey, look, you know, like, I'm not a genius. You know, I'm not a big shot here. But look at this amazing lady. And I may not know everything but look at this incredible guy, what they do. And they're always edifying and promoting their own leaders, their own team members, their own company, their own staff, their own surrounding etcetera. So and what happens because of that you would think of, but as the stupid move to make, because everybody will be respecting those other people more than me, right?

Because I'm giving away this attention. But I've been a witness of that time and time again, when people do that. They only get more respect for it. They only get more attention for it. They only get more edification for it, because everybody goes, “Yeah, yeah, you just being too humble here. You know, we know what you're doing. We know how you know incredibly you are.” But it's all about managing that spotlight; it’s managing that attention because, again, everybody craves for that attention. Everybody craves for that recognition. So the fact that you're a leader, the fact that you've built a great team, the fact that you're doing very well already lends itself to you getting that attention, to you getting that recognition. But you taking time to recognize somebody who is at the lower level than you, somebody who has been in the business for a shorter time than you, for somebody who went out of the comfort zone to do something, right for somebody who, really trying hard, can make a massive difference in that person's life and I've seen it so many times where, you know, somebody gets that recognition, and it transforms them.

You see them light up, you see their day become much better now, because they've got that recognition because they got that spotlight of attention on them and now they're so happy, now they want to get on a stage next time now they want to work even harder because they got recognized because they got that attention on to them.

That's my message for you, try always you know every meeting everywhere you go try and less people with attention with a compliment with a something instead of just trying to pour all the attention on to yourself you know because that's what most people do, they go yeah but what do you need to hear about my story? Oh yeah but you need to hear about my problems that I have. Yeah, but you need to see it and they’re trying so desperately to draw the attention on to themselves and they don't get it. Whereas when you give it is that's what you're going to attract even more of it to yourself.

That’s my training and tip for you. Hope you got value some value in this blog post, if you did, feel free to share it with other people.
