The company that you keep is what has a big influence on how your life will turn out. This includes friends and family.
It’s as simple as this, if you keep good company then you will become an amazing human being and live a great life. If you keep bad company then the chances are that you will put yourself in a mess and waste your life away.
In order to help improve our lives, we have to help improve others.
If your already helping others out then it’s quite clear that your not only caring about yourself.
I mean when starting a business isn’t the first thing that comes to mind is, ‘how can this product benefit customers?’
If not and your just thinking about the money, then i’m afraid you are set up for failure.
What only caring about yourself can lead to
Loss of respect: We may think that losing respect of others isn’t a big deal if we only care about ourselves. This will have a huge impact psychologically. People will tend to ignore you and not treat you as a normal person which will leave you feeling left out. In many cases this has lead to people suffering from depression.
I know this because I have been in that situation and I have had friends that also have. I can tell you this, it is not pretty.
Loss of trust: Losing trust from friends and family is something you wouldn’t want to go through. As well as losing trust, you will lose the support of others. Again this will make you feel left out and you will end up making stupid decisions in life.
Not feeling equal: It sucks but one wrong move and you will never be looked at the same again. People will naturally see you as a different person. It isn’t pleasant when people look at you in disgust and hate.
Not successful in life: Thinking about yourself will not help you in the long run. As I mentioned before about losing trust is a dangerous thing. You tend to make selfish decisions. Having no support or respect from people can mentally put you off track. Not having the right mindset will make it difficult to be successful and reach your goals.
The benefits of thinking of others
Let’s make this a bit more positive!
Being loved as a person: We love the attention. Wouldn’t you want to live life being treated as a special person? I certainly do. This will help you make the right decisions in life because you will have the support of others.
Feeling good about yourself: Feeling proud of yourself can have a positive impact on your life. This will change the way you approach life, being confident and motivated to improve as a person will help you become successful.
Getting support: Ever heard of the phrase “you get what you give”? It feels amazing to get help from others even when your not expecting it. Use that as motivation to help others, think of them as being you.
Thinking about yourself won’t get you far in life. Whatever goals you have in mind will almost feel impossible to achieve. The reason being is because we only think of doing things that are best suited to us and that will make things worse, especially when your running a business!
I’m not saying that we shouldn’t care about ourselves at all. We have to care about our own well being as well.
But when it comes to doing things that you know will only benefit you and not others then you will have to question it before doing so.
The reason why you have to question it is because there may be a chance of you hurting friends or family in the process.
That’s not the road you want to go down because imagine how shit life would be without people and being on your own.
Being on your own will make it extremely hard for you to become successful.
Help make this world be a better place for yourself and others around you!
Have an awesome day guys…Peace! 🙂
