Help Enough Others To Get What They Want and You’ll Get What You Want

All successful people know one important fact and live by it:

You earn money only through satisfying the needs and wants of others.

Think carefully about that last sentence before you shake your head. Nothing is bought, sold or traded that does not satisfy some need or fulfill someone’s desire. Make the welfare of others a chief priority in your life and you hold an important key to lasting success. Find ways to better serve your customers, business partners, colleagues, friends, family and others to the best of your ability. This must be foremost in your mind and reflected in your daily decisions and actions.

It is only by helping others to their success that you guarantee your own.

Trouble only arises when you change your focus from cooperation with others to focusing strictly on yourself; when your thoughts turn towards problems or your own profit then trouble begins.
Just learning to dedicate yourself to the person you are talking to or dealing with, will increase your success in business immediately and substantially!

If you enjoy doing this, you will be not only successful, but happy as well. This is the only way to true happiness: find a need (that unfulfilled, bothers many people) and enjoy filling it. If people do not want or need what you offer (we are not talking only about products and services, but your ideas as well!), you can waste much energy without any (or very little) success.
This idea is easy to understand. When you act in the best interest of others, people recognize and appreciate your commitment to them and reward that commitment by giving you their energy (business, time, attention, loyalty, money) back. Its as easy as that.

Always remember: Your problems are of no interest to the vast majority of people, however, you can solve the vast majority of your own problems by simply helping others solve theirs.

Even if you are not strictly a businessperson, satisfying the needs of others should be your primary objective in life. Most of your daily activities (conversations, shopping, work, play, family life) bring you in contact with others. You will be more successful in every area that involves people if you focus on their needs instead of your own. In the process, you’ll satisfy your needs automatically.
