I read a book a few years back titled ‘Thou Shall Prosper: Ten Commandments for Making Money’ by Rabbi Daniel Lapin. it a very simple straight forward but challenging book about our mindset regarding prosperity. I believe helping people will always take you forward, maybe because I value community, people more than money. I talked to almost everyone in my local areas, shop, etc. It’s amazing how people open up and start to share one thing or the other.
Helping others doesn’t have to be monetary – people reflect your behaviour back to you. The more you help others, the more others want to help you. Being a little bit nicer in each interaction may result in a network of broad and strong connections over time. Finding genuine friendships in others is not enough, you must be master of some way to help others, it doesn’t matter if you don’t get anything in return.
For example, if someone asked me for a favour of writing a program to travel with or help officiate a tennis match or actually play a tennis match – well I could do other things with my time like watching a football match on TV or watching a movie on Netflix. Instead I could help the person out and ignore my own desire of doing other things with my time which I cherish above any other things. The list of things we can help people with goes on but that’s just an example.
Another way is to listen to someone who is really in distress, who needs someone to talk to without judgement. So, life is a miracle provided you have many friends and provided everyone knows what everyone else does best. This of course is the value of advertising. This wisdom has brought lots of success to my life and helped me connect with winners in life. Do this for 30 days and see how your life will change.
