SIX Things We Must Give to Others If We Want to Achieve Success: Chris Widener

A major part of the process of achieving success and living the kind of life that you dream of is to give. Many people think that to get what you want you have to take it. There is a universal truth though that the true path to get what you want is to give. When you give, you get. What you sow, you shall reap.  If this is true, then what is it we must give? I'll show you the way… 

1. Give Others Your Honesty.  
To achieve success is to become wealthy not only in money, 
but in character. 

To be successful, truly successful, is to be able to attain your goals 
and keep your character at the same time!… 

 2. Give Others Your Respect.  
Most of the time we give people respect based on what they have done 
or what they have accomplished. 

But I believe we should have a higher standard: 
We respect people not for what they have done or 
for who they are related to or for what they can do for us. 
Instead, we respect people for simply being. 

 3. Give Others Your Care. 
Take the time to show people you care. 
Listen to them. Empathize with them. 
Love them. Now, 

I don't mean that you have to go around hugging everyone—
but we can take some time to step back from business and be human! 
And I have found that when we do so, our business succeeds as well! 

 4. Give Others Your Passion.  
There is nothing this world needs more than passionate people. 
And people need passionate people. 

Living in this day and age can be tiring. 
The hustle and bustle of it all can wear 
you down and tire you out. 
Give your passion to others and fire them up. 

Don't just be humdrum—be excited. 
Give people all the energy you can muster up. 
And you will find that energy reciprocal. 
They will get energized and passionate. 

This in turn will fire you up more when you are already charged 
and get you going altogether when you don't feel like moving at all! 

5. Give Others Your Experience. 
 ------------------------------- --------------
We all have areas that we excel in and they are usually areas 
that we have experience in. 

One of the things we can do to make our lives more meaningful 
and be of utmost help to others is to show them the way through 
the experiences we have.

Sometimes it will be what they should do: 
Shortcuts to take, people to meet etc. 

Sometimes it will be what they should not do: 
Shortcuts not to take and people to stay away from! 
Whatever it is, we can be of service to others by giving 
them our experience and ultimately it will make us all better! 

 6. Give Others Your Help.  
All in all, what we want to do is to help others. 

Zig Ziglar says 
that if we will "help others get what they want, 
we will in turn get what we want." 

If we want to be successful, 
we should consider ourselves servants of other people. 
What can we do to help them and make them better? 

This is the true path to greatness and success, 
not only in business but in life!
