To have the help you are wanting you have to give before receiving. The majority of people will not help you until you do something for them. It is not a guarantee you will get help you are seeking. However, being the initiator will encourage them to help you. The act will show, you are a person of value. Going out of the way consistently doing more then is expected. Too many people only do the minimum. What good is it when you are wanting to get ahead.
You have to look at where you can be the highest value and asset to those around you. The answer is right in front of you. It could be the thoughts you have to enable another person. Something may need to be fixed. To any other person, it is small. The act of fixing is showing of their significance. Each event you create maybe small to you, however you don’t know how it could make a huge influence on another. Push yourself every day. It is the essence of who you are.
