Please put your own oxygen mask on first!

Posted by Gediminas Grinevicius on Sunday, February 23, 2020 Under: Personal Development

I want to do a bit of a different training, because yesterday we spent like, I don't know, maybe 12 hours flying.

Most of you when you fly, you'll probably remember, when you get on an airplane and they do the safety instruction, they say, “Please put on your own oxygen mask first, before you help somebody else.” Well, I keep hearing that when I get on an airplane and I thought how true is that and how does it apply to our business and our lives too. Because I see so many people who want to help others, who want to do charitable work, who want to do all sorts of good for the world and for the humanity, but they are struggling themselves. They can't make the ends meet at the end of the month by themselves. They are broke like hell, but they want to change the world. They want to do charity and do all sorts of voluntary work.

And for me, one of my favourite sayings is that you can't help the poor if you're one of them. So like with that oxygen mask, in life, you also need to help yourself first before you can help other people and that also works for people who feel guilty because there's part of population, there's a group of people who feel guilty about making big money, who feel guilty about becoming extremely successful, who feel guilty to live in the house of their dreams or drive the car of their dreams. Because, it's not spiritual to be rich, all rich people are evil and all of that nonsense.

Again, if you're one of those people, hear me out, you can't help the poor if you're one of them. You being broke, doesn't help anybody. You playing small, doesn't serve nobody. So it's not selfish for you to go out there and make a lot of money. It's not selfish for you to go out there and build a successful business because only by doing so you can support others.

You can contribute to good causes. You can donate a bunch of money, because if you haven't got any money, then you can really support your local church, you can't really support your local orphanage, you can't really support the local homeless, because you are struggling, but if you go out there and crush it, now you can use that wealth, you can use that influence, you can use that business in order to help thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions of people. So like on that airplane, you also need to help yourself first before you can help others.

Now lastly, there is another group of people who are ‘the Guru's who are the trainers, the teachers, the whatnot,’ and they claim that, “Hey, come to me, I'll make you successful.” And then you look at that person and you realize that that person is not successful. That person has not achieved success yet, but they're trying to help other people. So how can you help somebody if you haven't achieved a success? So again, apply the oxygen mask on yourself first, before you shove it onto somebody else's face.

Get some results before you start being a World class trainer. We all want that maybe, maybe not all of us but it will come. When you get the results, when you make the money, then people will write biographies about you, people will invite you on the stage to speak as a keynote speaker and all that. It’s going to happen, but first, earn the bloody thing, earn the book, earn the speaking on the stage, earn the right to coach and teach other people.

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.
