Have you ever finished writing a letter (e-mail) and counted how many times the word, “I” appears and realized it’s in every other sentence? Do you agree that with Facebook and Instagram it seems like many of us are saying, “Look at me?” When asked to do something do you find yourself wondering, “What’s in it for me?”
It’s natural. We are all the center of our own universe and the world revolves around us. However, there are still people out there who ask, “What can I give?” instead of, “What do I get?” These people stand out.
I know a guy who is known for his random acts of kindness, selflessness, and empathy, and guess what, he’s super successful. He doesn’t give to get, but in the end people turn to him when they need a realtor. His name is Norm, and he’s always there in times of need for his family, friends, and the community in general. Nice guys do finish first.
