The single most important thing that I have learned in my business career and personal life is that you need to help others unconditionally.
This means that when someone calls for help, regardless calling you directly, through a friend or perhaps through social media, it is in your own best interest to help them.
This might be giving a reference for a job seeker or it might be acting as a sounding board for a new business concept dreamed up by an entrepreneur. A colleague might need someone to talk to while in a personal crisis. Someone ask for blood donation. Twitfriends are asking to retwit finding missing friends / families.
Some people perhaps just need a friend to talk to, someone to listen to them. These are not Difficult things to do.
HELP THEM !
My bet is that people around you will be stunned and grateful by your generosity. It is my experience that they will give back to you in a variety of ways. It is reasonable that they will continue the relationship with you. Or, they may refer you or your business to others. If you have a product or service that they need, they will buy from you.
Your reward may not come right away. It might come much later or not at all. Expect Nothing in return.
Sometimes We find ourselves holding back, fearful of being cheated, afraid to sacrifice a piece of ourselves. Plus, we’ve all been wronged numerous times. Seems It’s hard to see the good in someone when they just lied to you or cheated on you.
But what if we looked beyond all this and just loved?
As you become more proficient in finding positive aspects in other people, you get better at seeing positive aspects of yourself. Seeing the good in other people is not just necessary for giving good compliments; it also substantially improves your own happiness!
Love because you’re grateful for the things someone has done for you. Love because someone needs you, needs a friend to lean on during their struggles. This unconditional love is something that can so easily be given if we recognize it, and that can change someone else’s life completely.
When we love and treat each other with the utmost care and attention, the little things that bother us seem far less overwhelming.
What would the world be like if we stopped looking to get something in return, and just loved unconditionally, for the happiness and inner peace it brings us all ?
