“You can get everything you want in life, as long as you help enough people get what they want” Zig Ziglar
If you read a book or listen to a seminar of Zig Ziglar, you will inevitably hear those words many times. This quote has proven itself true many times not only for myself but also for many other people in my life.
In today's society we often get taught not to give too much to others, or else we get taken advantage of. Negative experiences establish a skeptical cautious behavior where we hold on tightly to our knowledge and energy, afraid other people would take too much.
Unfortunately the caution doesn’t get you very far. It is only when you let down your guard, that we can connect and get appreciated.
Intellectually it is easy to understand “You can get everything you want in life, as long as you help enough people get what they want” - however it takes contemplation to truly get the meaning of the message.
We all have skills to help further the development and happiness of others - you’ll notice using those skills will always pay off. If we let go of the need to control and keep a tight grip on our resources, you will be surprised by the appreciation you’ll receive.
Try it out and help people get what they want in life, then notice the benefits you’ll find.
