What you want lies in the value you create for others

What you want lies in the value you create for others.

The world would be a much better place if more people lived by this philosophy. So much can be gained by helping other people. I’ve seen it on both sides and there’s almost nothing more powerful than helping others get what they want.

Help someone out today. Give someone advice, share a business lead with someone, send someone a pick-me-up note if you know they’re down, hand a homeless person $10, just do something that has no direct benefit to yourself but means a great deal to another person. It will make your, and their, day.

Taking the time to ask people about their lives, to listen carefully to their answers and to find ways to help them aside and apart from the actual business are all demonstrations of “caring.” The more you genuinely care for other people by the Law of Reciprocity, the more they will genuinely care for you.

In conclusion, You can get everything in life you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.
