You can get everything in life you want if you will just help other people get what they want. (Zig Ziglar, late motivational speaker)
Is Ziglar’s comment paradoxical? How can I achieve my goals if I’m helping others achieve theirs? First, it’s always good to be helpful. It not only aids another person to reach their goals, but it helps you grow in character and community awareness. Besides, by helping them, you may very well learn something that causes you to rethink what you really want.
For I know your eagerness to help. (2 Corinthians 9:2)
