It sounds simple doesn’t it? If you just focus on helping people get what they want, you’ll get what you want.
Maybe you’ve heard the saying, “What comes around goes around”. We used to call it karma. Now some people call it “The Law of Attraction”. There’s even a new movie about it titled “The Secret”. It’s not new though, people have been writing about it for hundreds of years.
There’s one catch though. You can’t expect anything in return. You simply give freely (by helping people get what they want) and trust that it will all work out.
Let’s look at the guy who experimented by offering free hugs. If somehow you missed the story, it’s right here (slow loading link). Juan Mann simply wanted to reach out and brighten peoples’ lives, so he decided to offer free hugs. Even though he had no intention of becoming famous, the video spread like wild fire at youtube.com. On October 30, 2006, Juan found himself sitting across from Oprah for an interview. See how it works?
It works for you too. Help your boss get what he or she wants. Help your colleagues get what they want. Help your clients or customers get what they want. Help your friends and family get what they want. Expect nothing in return, but remember to notice how it all comes back to you. And usually, you get back way more than you gave.
Would you be willing to put all of those crazy new years resolutions aside and simply focus on helping people get what they want?
