Zig Ziglar said; “You can have everything you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want.”
That is one of my favorite quotes of all time. Because it is so true in my life. It is a self-fulfilling prophecy for those who practice the messages. Think back over your life. Think about the people who have had a positive influence on you. These are people who probably don’t even know what an impact they have had on you. They did something, however small that made a difference in your life. Maybe it was a friend, or mentor, or boss, or employee, or student or teacher, or family member. They impacted your life because they cared enough to do something for which they may or may not be repaid. Without expectation or seeking glory. They gave for the sake of giving.
And you? What have you done for someone else that may have impacted your life and theirs for the better? What could you do for someone today that might just matter tomorrow or years from now?
When you help someone else it increases your self confidence. You feel good about yourself and others feel better about you. Your TQ (trust quotient) goes way up. People like you more. And they want to do business with you. People want to support people who GIVE.
By helping others you help yourself. And it’s not just about money. It could be as simple as a phone call, a card in the mail, a kind expression, a shoulder to cry on, lending an ear… etc. In fact, there is a great new book that just came out this week which shares in-depth what happens to those who are givers. It is called The Power of Giving by Azim Jamal and Harvey McKinnon.
“The Power of Giving is a book that will show you the simple secrets to getting what you want most in life. Extensive scientific research shows that giving will benefit you, as much those you give to. In this award-winning book, authors Azim Jamal and Harvey McKinnon, reveal how you can live your life to achieve the greatest impact, happiness and satisfaction.”
Jack Canfield, author of The Success Principles and co-creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul said about The Power of Giving, “If everyone followed the advice given in this wonderful book, our world would be a richer, more equitable and peaceful place. I am personally touched by their deep message. The Power of Giving is a must read. Profit from reading it. Give it to everyone you love.”
“When you buy this book, you’ll help it to become a bestseller. This means you will also spread the message of giving. Already published in 9 languages, The Power of Giving won a 2009 Nautilus Gold Award — an honor previously bestowed upon authors such as His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Deepak Chopra, and Eckhart Tolle.”
The Power of Giving will help you to achieve more of what you want in your life. And you also receive several thousand dollars worth of gifts from partners who have also experienced the Power of Giving and want to share their gifts with you. What about you?
