One of the most important decisions you can make is to be on the lookout for opportunities to invest in others. For me, this has been one of the most powerful principles of momentum I’ve implemented in my life.
Zig Ziglar once said “You’ll always have everything you want in life if you’ll help enough other people get what they want”. I have decided that at every opportunity I have, I will look for ways to help others, because my investment in people’s lives has changed mine for the better. The fact that after almost 2 years of counselling friends and family on BBM, I eventually started my own blog. A month after after my first ever blog post and already over 4000 views from more than 20 countries around the World (mind you I have been to only 5 countries all my life).
I know someone somewhere has been inspired or transformed by a post on this blog and that is a joy that drives me, makes all the sleepless nights coming up with my articles worth it. How are you investing in people’s lives?
“There are three keys to more abundant living , caring about others, daring for others and sharing with others (William Ward). Assign yourself the purpose of making others happy and successful. People have a way of becoming what you encourage them to be.
There are two types of people in the world: those who come into a room and say, “Here I am!” and those who come in and say, “Ah, there you are!”. “Do this: “If you cannot win, make the one ahead of you break the record” (Jan McKeithen). Invest in others, it pays great dividends.
Do you leave people better than you met them?
