“You need to be aware of what others are doing, applaud their efforts, acknowledge their successes, and encourage them in their pursuits. When we all help one another, everybody wins.”
– Jim Stovall
I want you to think about one question for today:
How invested are you in helping others achieve success?
Just like you, everyone you will meet today has dreams, goals, and hopes.
Just like you, they might be walking around with those dreams, goals, and hopes locked up inside.
In doing so we miss out on utilising the most powerful liberator of dreams – other people.
Join me in the following challenge:
- Choose 2 – 4 people that you know.
- Make a point of asking them about their goals and then listening for an opportunity to help them. There might be nothing you can do at the time, but you are now attuned to their needs.
- Every 6 – 8 weeks check in with one of them. Ask how things are going. Their journey might have brought them to a new crossroads. One that this time you might be able to help with. Whether it’s with a connection, or some sage advice, or just a word of encouragement.
Do this because you want to help and not because you are expecting a return.
It will be one of the best investments that you make this year.
