How to Get What You Want in Life

By Andy Lockhart

I am a marketer and social media consultant passionate about helping people development themselves and their business. I believe everybody has it in them to succeed at their passion regardless if that is through a Direct Sales Opportunity or a brick and mortar business. Either way I love to see people be successful and I like to take the mystery out of the social media and getting discovered on the internet.

Great message here, Andy.

We can do all the marketing research in the world, but the only research we really need to do is within our own business.

Ask people in your blog posts what their biggest challenges are.

Link to surveys in your emails, put up polls in your webinars and ask around in the Facebook groups and forums that you frequent.

Find out from YOUR followers what THEY want, and then furnish it. That will put you firmly on the path to success in your business.

Thank you Andy, for sharing your insights and the video.

Yes, people pick up on your underlying energy and/or intention.
Making the focus ‘about them’ makes sense.

In the long run what we are doing for others we are doing for ourselves since ‘we are all one’ anyway.

Love and Light

Spot on post Andy!

And kudos to that two ears and one mouth advice! often times in personal relationships as well, the fact that far too much of one thing and not enough of the other can and will be a major cause of problems!

In business, you’d best laser focus on your customer or clients needs, otherwise your major competitors will! Great advice! Thanks so much for sharing it!


Thanks so much for this video! I enjoyed it so much, especially when Les pulled out his mascara. One can surely see that you cannot give to others unless your are firstly comfortable in your own skin. But more importantly than that, we need to communicate to others for their benefit.

Yes indeed, people can know within a few minutes weather you are there for them or not.

Again, thanks so much!


Hi Andy,

I enjoyed your post and especially the video. It’s obvious these 3 are comfortable “in their own skin” and even thought they joked around quite a bit, the message still came through loud and clear about being sincere in helping others.

Hi Andy. Hope your move is going well. 🙂 I love the Zig Ziglar quote. It’s kind of my guiding star. And I enjoyed this video very much. I had a friend who wanted to be Zig Ziglar, but he ended up at Hallmark heading a customer service training program. He never became famous, but he touched a lot of lives, including mine. I never looked at customer service the same way again. Thanks for sharing.

All the best,

One of the greatest take-aways from being in business is that I often hear about how “copy” either attracts the perfect customer or the wrong one… in the end, it all comes down to how well you know your ideal customer and how you can serve them.

Thanks for your words!

Hi And ,
great video,I saw it before and enjoyed it.
Helping others in the first place a, not only focus on what
we can get, is the right thing to do. People feel if somebody
is really interested in helping them to get what they want.
Thank you

Great video and advice. I’ve been a fan of John Maxwell for years, I’ve seen him speak and have most of his books, but I have to admit that this is the first time I’ve seen Les Brown. I know who he is of course, but for some reason he’s never been a featured speaker at any of the conferences I’ve attended – and that’s a LOT of conferences over the years. I’m glad to finally have the opportunity to learn a bit about him.

Hi Andy

To often most people… me including in the past… were chasing $$ over relationships. Most people don’t see how critical this is to a business surviving or failing before it has even got started. Yes true we have two ears and one mouth but how often do we use them in that order?

Thank you for your wisdom.


I adore the idea of getting what you want out of life by simply helping others get what they want out of life. Some may say that this concept is all about good Kharma. You get out what you put in and the universe will reward your efforts.

Thanks for a great post and a reminder of a wonderful video.

I love that quote from Zig Ziglar. Until now, I’ve always thought of it in the context of network marketing, but it just struck me that it’s just as relevant and important in my particular area of interest — writing books that will enlighten, encourage and edify my readers. Thanks for sharing the video!

Hi Andy,

I have to say, watching this video again and reading Lesly’s comment made me laugh. I too cannot imagine Les Brown using mascara to cover his gray hair. He He I think I will try this on my husband lol.


Hi… I love this whole premise… it goes back to Give before your receive. Advice from all of these well respected men is credibility to what can happen if you follow the right path. I love John Maxwell’s quote about the two most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you know why, and the gift is greater than the person. Humility plays a part in all of it. Humble yourselves before your clients.

Yes, giving people what they want is what works, certainly these days when people often have the attention span of a moment, or until their phone beeps it’s next notification!
There is so much information out there, which we are bombarded with all the time, and it is refreshing to be asked what we would like to know.
And likewise, to listen to our audiences 🙂

Hi Andy,

What a great post! My favorite line is “You were born with 2 ears and 1 mouth.” 🙂
It really is so important to listen to customer’s this way you can give them exactly what they are looking for.

Thank you for this insightful post!
