The ONE THING for today

People that support others

  • “If you will help enough people get what they want in life you will inevitably get what you want in life.” _Zig Ziglar

Be a “support” person

Most people are pretty much black and white – they lay down the law and expect people to perform or live up to it. However, there are some who not only point out the standard, they also provide (most often undeserved) support to help others reach and exceed the standard.

Standard-focused people can wash their hands of people and say, “They should know better.”

Support-focused people pretty much have dirty hands all the time because they get involved—they become a part of the solution. For the support-focused person it is not just about getting their job done, it’s about getting the job done which usually means there are several others that need to get their jobs done as well.

For the support-focused person it is not just about “live and let live” it’s about live and help others live also.

Funny thing about support-minded people, over the long haul, they’re usually the ones that always come out ahead; turns out that a giving-support lifestyle sets you up for success on so many levels.

  • The ONE THING for today: Dare to get involved in helping other people succeed.

Put yourself aside, and help others get ahead. Don’t be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand.
