Being a businessman or an entrepreneur does not necessarily entail that you should give everything to help others.
One thing you might want to consider is to think of other ways to help them on how to aid themselves and teach them not to be dependent to other people all their lives.
Among these statements, which do you think is true?
- One of life’s goals is to promote a helpful community where people help one another.
- One of life’s goals is to help ‘yourself’ first, be successful and give chance to others to do the same thing for themselves.
Undeniably, there is no rule in life that obliges you to help others. Perhaps the mix of both statements is a fact: Be determined to be successful in your personal life and while doing so, you can also help others.
The Proof Is in the Doing
Those people who help others don’t necessarily mean that they are more prosperous in life. There’s no research or even mathematical explanation about this. Though, if you help other people, you feel more contented, you appreciate more of what you have in life, you become happier and become a good example to others. Those people perceive connection to the society and they understand more of others feelings. This makes their existence longer.
Helping Is a Natural Part of Who You Are
Helping is a part of you. It shows from your simple act of concern to other people. It is mostly shown at home from trying to help household choirs, to handing over things to your parents if they ask you something.
People say that all human beings are born naturally good. Thus, children already have that genuine thoughtfulness to other person who is in need. From your early childhood, you already longed to give help to your family. This is natural as they are the ones who raise you and loved you from the day you were born.
This trait can sometimes be carried out until you grow older, not only to your family but also to your friends and the society.
Are businessmen included in this nature?
There’s Plenty to Go Around
In the world of business, some people believe that there is a tight competition among businessmen and there is no room to display mercy. Well the truth is, there are a lot of opportunities out there. There are a lot of ideas to ponder and a lot of line of business to choose on, just get the right business where you can relate on and you can do well at it.
If you just believe in yourself and if you know how to be creative and innovative in giving good offers to your target market then you can definitely be successful at it.
Do not be selfish and self-centered, learn to be open-minded and allot time to understand how your business works and how you can collaborate with others then eventually everything will be paid off.
You need to instill in your mind that you need the help of others and they will also do the same to you (do not expect that much). No one can make it alone. If you work it all alone, you begin to become anti-social, and you begin to question your worth. Thus, you will be unhappy.
In helping other people, you invest your effort, time and even money however in order to have genuine happiness you do not just think about your return of investment. But you do it because it what makes you happy and contented.
