The Question All Successful People Ask

Posted on: Nov 27, 2017

Categories: Customer Experience

There is a “magic” question that will change how you encounter the world and how the world receives you.

It goes like this: “What can I do for you?”

This question should not be reserved for customer service associates and bellhops. If you want to be successful in your life, your marriage, your relationships, or your business, then you need to get comfortable asking others how you can be of service.

If you get good at asking this question consistently and frequently, you’ll be surprised at how your business will grow and your relationships will strengthen.

I want you to try this: Pick up the phone and ask your client, your spouse, your boss, your sibling, your parent, or your friend what you can do for them. Don’t put a cap on what you’re offering – just put the offer out there and see what they need. And remember, the follow-through is everything— if you offer, then make sure you over-deliver.

Don’t wait to be asked. Offer to help before they know they need it, and you, your friendship, your products, and your service will always be in demand.
