“You can get everything in life you want — if you will just help enough other people get what they want.” ~Zig Ziglar
The phrase “paying it forward” — helping others without expecting anything in return — is practically a cliche now. But there’s something to it. I’ve discovered over the years that whenever I do nice things for others (or help them out of a bind) my life magically improves, too.
Helping other people adds to our own happiness, opens new doors, and even improves our health and wellbeing. In other words, generosity may look altruistic but it’s actually self-serving — in a good way.
Life isn’t a competition. Can you imagine what the world would look like if we all looked out for each other? ~CL
