Book: Pushing Up People

Author: Art Williams

What is the main lesson you learned from this book? When I first read this book, I was sure it was written by [Reliv Chairman & CEO] Bob Montgomery!  Pushing Up People is all about realizing that people are our greatest asset. That’s how a football coach created a company “where sales people are king.”  It compares the difference between management and leadership at the beginning of each chapter and talks a lot about how to treat people; to help them believe in themselves; to encourage; to praise, but not to criticize.

A quote that stood out to me: I think my favorite paragraph is on page 111, “I believe that when you approach people to join your company, you can’t just sell them a job.  People are sick of jobs … they want you to offer them a dream and the opportunity to make it come true.  If you can offer people a chance to do something special with their lives, a chance to dream again, you’ve given them the kind of motivation to succeed that they’ll never have if you just give them a set of duties.”

One practical piece of advice from this book? I can introduce people to the fundamentals and the elements of the Reliv System. I can teach them the structure and basics, but what they need to go along with that is the dream to get them through the bad times to the sunshine and light which always comes. That desire for a better life must come from within each person.

Plan – Every Sunday I look at my calendar on my computer and transfer it to my planner. Every night I look at what is planned for the next day. I prioritize what needs to get done and focus on the things that absolutely must be accomplished. Everyone has the same amount of time in a day ­— it’s amazing how some people can get ten times the amount of things accomplished. That’s because every moment of time is accounted for. “It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives; it’s what we do consistently.” – Anthony Robbins Continue reading “5 Ways to Put Your Best Foot Forward by Quila Buhler”
