One of my greatest concerns is that we are all turning into “self – made” people. But in all actuality there is no such thing. Because along the way to being self made everyone has had some help.

Where did they find this help? They found it by asking other people about what they were doing. Instead of pushing their own ideas on others they discovered how they could be of service by listening to where the opportunities may be. And once they identified that opening, they seized the moment and asked for help. By using this approach they went from being a taker into being a giver. They give of their ideas and service to benefit others and in turn receive a hundredfold return.

Try giving of your time and interest to someone who may have nothing to offer you in return. You never know where or when your opportunity will be until you try!
