And congratulations for thinking this step to learn how to get more success by reaping what you sow. It is very, very important to understand this because the more you reap, the more you saw in success before we begin in this special cause, I too share view some wise words for Napoleon Hugh himself. He said the starting point off all achievement is desire. So before even talk about success, do you have a desire to be successful? If you do, then you must have the desire to do it so they can chief everything in life. So what is really success that so many different definitions off success in all the books that you read all over the world? And today I'm going to share view. What is the rial rials assess that you should be aiming for. All right. You be surprised it I'm gonna show you what it really is. Okay. My name is Elvin, and welcome to this program. You can check also my website at the laying in front of you. Even the file more what I do. So if you go to Oxford dictionary. The definition offs assess is the accomplishment off and aim or purpose. So it is very, very different from how we look at success from most people because they may be taking off something else in the money or some material gain. But actually the definition is very clear. Is the commission off purpose is very amazing to find out when I share students with this concept, a lot of people who set goes do not have purpose. All right. And I was shocked, all right, because the books all day don't tissue there. All right. So generally there are two groups of people in this world. We have the poor that want to be rich, right? And we have the reach who are very rich, but one to be happy for some strange reason Saw the countries that I go, the poor tend to be more happier and the rich because they are somehow more contentedly what they have sometimes but off course. They also be rule people who want to be extreme. You lt. And where the other side of coin we have the reach. You have a lot of money, but they like happiness, and we do see that right now in this century off this world. So for the poor, right, many people are including myself. When I first started my own online business, I always thought that more money leads to more happiness. And that's what I read in all the self help books that I read in my life and all said the same thing. You to attend a lot of wealth to be happy. Okay, And the more stuff you get them, it makes you more happy, like a nice car in a nice house. And that's what we see in the movies as well. All right, any influence our way off thinking, How about the reach? Well, money does not make you happier, actually, relationships thus, and that's what is lacking in most reach people. You'll be surprised, okay? And when people start to die, they become less proud off their well. And this is very, very true because they there's only so much money can do in our lives. You come by cures to certain disease. I can. So all right, on this all really, really stuff and people don't actually appreciate life on you, and they're about to die right, So that's what the reasons. There are many other reasons as well, so I can t o them. But this says some of the common ones I have seen throughout these years all right and being reach. Sometimes you make life more meaning meaningless. Because imagine, you have no worries about money. All right? You actually have no really sense of purpose to leave because every day you are just spending your money on buying things on. You think these things when you create joy, But that's not really true. So let's find out more later on in a shame you. So when I was very young, I really, really wanted to be rich, like, really, really wished by the off. When I said my goal, I was only about 23 years old and I read lots off self help books that you said. You said, if you really I want to be financially free, you need to be rich. A meteo attained a low wealth in cash and all those nice things that you see in Whoa! OK, so I made a choice and I made a choice and all right, and I decide the model. What works, all right. And I even created a vision board. I didn't attend any special cause, but I know that vision boats help at that time. I think so. So I even washed the movie the secret. All right, So call that you say, if you want to get something you need to create vision bought. So I created one, and it's my real vision bought. I create that many, many, many, many years ago. Okay. I put the things that I wanted. I wanted to buy a Volkswagen Beetle car. I leave in Singapore where costs are really very expensive, I think like 34 times more expensive than any other country. I want a $1,000,000. I wanted to buy a P S p the time I didn't have one, all right. And I want to buy Ah 18. Where that I loved a lot, a lot and I wanted by Nokia phone. All right. That was many, many years ago. Okay, So I created this war paper and it became my vision bought for the future. During that time, I didn't understand how to run businesses, but most of the self help books that I read when I was very young. Told me that if I want to be happy, I need to have all these things that I have put up on the vision bought and ideologue crazy things. I joined a lot of programs here and there. Ah, and also the city things about, like go charts and go tables to remind myself and wash movies like the secret in Syria, my duties, you know, our 10 Audis and will be very, very happy. So I decided to start my very first business in 2000 and five. I was very young back then and I didn't know how the run business. So I just simply decided sell close and some decision areas you can see that it struck was actually at Boogie Street in ah, Singapore, right? It was located in a very, very isolated area. Watch the biggest mistake that I did with my partner and we didn't three months that business close down because in people there wasn't any cells. It was just that bad, OK, and it was a learning experience today. So from their own, I didn't give up. I started explore many other business. I'd explore our multilevel marketing business very state in also insurance. I didn't really the insurance arrested much because I'd really enjoy being a chauffeur for people and meeting people talk. So I wonder business that allow me the way home. So I found some online multilevel marketing programs and during that programme are introduced about blocking. And then I started a blocked call. Gathers assess. So get is and stop. Com is one of our real block. I'm still blogging that blocks to our life today. It started in tools usual six way back in October, and biscuits are blocked, basically talking about how I make money in my multi level marketing program. And that's what I write about, uh, at that time and during that time also, it's a price a lot of people actually want to learn about how to make money online. And I was getting a lof people asking me a lot of questions about what to do, what, the cell, how to set up and all those things. And I was documenting everything that I was doing and telling people how, what I said, how I saw it. Oh, my block s well, and he became a very popular block. So I thought, Why not? Right? Ah, guy about how I make money from my block. And that's how I started writing a guy called Tommy blogging. And in that guy I was teaching people how, actually make cells from my block. What I do was the traffic traditions on sources of Complete Guy. This guy is no longer available for sale, but since I launched that guy make my name in the Internet marketing industry to be known as the go to guy for blocking, and that actually helped almost triple core trooper my income to a smash justice. Okay, And I was making really, really lost sales, all right, just doing online. And it was one of those experiences that I will never forget. OK, so it's a very wonderful experience to make a lot money from certainly e books and from my block, a swell from selling people's products as well. And it's a little chart that I create that way. Mental 09 You see someone that makes 7000 is high and studied out in a month. So every man I was talking five figures 4 to 5 figures most of the time, so there was what I waas experiencing and still doing it even today. And aside from home in, that's why I enjoy about doing Internet business. All right, because of my great success. I was featured on local papers on me. Singapore in paper, in Chinese. Alright, telling me. But I make money from blogging. This about article on me having cigars to make money off the trainer and trainer as well. A teach others on how I actually make money from blocking as well. And it's not a big just from my students in the pass in Singapore and other countries said I teach as well have you teaching you in today? Ah, this. Ah Minister, In one of my events, I created a charity event in a pass and I write a him. It's on my speakers even guess all right, it's me and you speaking nothing of 400 people. This is Singapore talking about my experience off teaching on lying on making money online as well, all right, and also selling products on my block myself. So I'm a race speeders, training and speaker around the world teaching about this topic. So in my life, all the while I thought success equal to more money. Okay, Mr More I have, the more happy I will be. That's my definition of success at the time. And there are also all the self apples. Always seems to say the same thing. OK, so my career actually hit my first meeting revenue Asian 39 which I waas quite happy with. All right, But however, uh, my characters had to change. I actually grown more proud and had a very high eagle and was a what? I'll be very honest, I d really came much about other people. Oh, I can't was about myself, me, me and always me. I don't know if getting related this, but if maybe so you guys are listening. You are one off them as well. Where every day when you were you always thinking only about what I can gain or what can I get? I don't think about what you can help out this fall. So that wants me many years ago, all right. And the inside me, actually, I was that she wasn't really have, even though I got all those well, I wasn't really happy because I was working even harder to live the life start. I thought I would be happier with we all the nice car, nice house and everything. All the expenses really went up a lot. And my money expenses were not really a lot. So I had to ready pressure myself. What you would holler just to keep their lifestyle. So what happened is I actually allow the world to define what success Waas for me. And that was something that no book actually told me. Are you and I far too late and I'm gonna show you what happened after that. 3. You Reap What You Sow - Part 2: if you were in my shoes, you would think I would have had a great life. Actually got Mary after that when I got so much wealth. But I got a wake up call when? One fine day. I was around 30 years old, all right. And my father in law give me a call and told me that he was pretty, not very well and home. We here knows fencer at the time off, I even though I have a love wealth in cash any more time. There was anything I can't really do to help him because there wasn't any cure for that cancer. And I was pretty desperate at that time, all right? And looking for ways. All right. So whatever someone injures to me about Jesus on healing. So we went to a church and my whole family went to church to pray for my father in law and praise God after six months off prayer, right? Somehow she just hear him. And that's how I became a very devoted Christian today. All right. Somehow after I became a Christian, I waas my life Really? Waas changed in the sense that I was start to realize I was missing my purpose in life All the while, before I wasa Christian. I always stop that my purpose in life is to attain more money, more wealth, so I can be more happy. All right, that's what all the South Hubble space. All right. So I think it must be right. That's all the meaning is Say so. I guess that should be correct. So what happened was that I decided to do something different for change. Is that off? Aiming to earn something or whatever when I try to help other people instead. So I took a leap of faith and told some cash flew all the way the Philippines and find the poorest people I can find and give them some rice for free. So when the feeling is a picture of me in Philippines, I can sleep is a very dirty some area that I went to is ready very poor. And I went there on started donating. Rice is a lady carrying a pet or five. He'll off rice. And I remember when I was there, there was this little go there, even on you. Today is to touch me because that girl holding the brothers. You can see there's a brother. I also where's your parents? And she said, I have no parents. My parents has possibly. And now my only job is a lot after my brother. And there I waas located small girl. You know, she she still have a great smile, as you see, if on the photo and I also encouraged because I decimating for granted. I have my parents were still alive today and I know appreciate them, you know, And I could cry when I saw her, how how much help she really needed and how much love she give to her younger brother. So during a time, for every $50 that I don't think that I was able to help 10 families for two weeks. So I was having a lot of families and doing this experience off, giving all right, you taught me something No self help book has ever taught me, which is. Actually it's more blessed to give than to receive, and I suddenly became more aware off a lot of things I never seen before because I was able to see beyond the money that I can. A chief for myself So why am I telling you all these things for Well, the world has that you tricked us into thinking that we need money. We need gadgets. When he knew I fall So our android devices on nine spots cars on nice condos, All right to be happy And a lot. A lot, a lot off self help books that I've read all tell the same thing. You need to audience for things to be very, very happy. And I was treating the thing in there. Yeah, I think so too. Because it seems that all the movies or the 1,000,000 as who all these things seems to be really happy Seems alright. Seems all right. But once you experience it, you went with the stage like me. All right, you started realized that money cannot really by happiness writes that he choose something else. You shave later on. What it is is even more important than money. Okay, so imagine this. You just got a brand new Ferrari car sports car. And on the first day, you felt good. No doubt everyone love to drive a sports car but after a month, or driving it the ready or pay money to maintain it kicks in and then you started realized you're not as a sighted s you once Watts before Why all right is because many other things in life owning a few temporal pleasures and happiness That is the reason why. So if you bang your life or getting all this material things, you won't be happy forever. You be happy to drive the car the first day, that's for sure. But you will not be happy as well as you were on the first day after Like the ladies are driving it. Okay, This you definitely won't be okay. And you won't make you happy forever or satisfy our life forever. Your enemy You happy for? Ah wow oni Okay, so it's not a permanent thing. So seize that some of the issues off the current go systems or current books that about setting goals and success for the money. It's all train you to inform more Stop. And that's really true. Okay, I read all the boats out there and tell you, you know what goes on morning small things. You make you more happy. There's no ethical accountably to achieve the stain that sometimes you get. It means you're right. There's no right or wrong. Just do it right. There's no ethical and even do it and created as resting. But more money good, more happiness. That's what many books say. Okay, they don't say that lightly, but indirectly, if you trust, are selling toe never ending Spiral off, getting more stuff. All right. Actually, you do not really meet, okay? And you realize you really you stand back away at your own life. You realize there's no purpose. But just to consume more stuff in the Western has influenced a lot of people on this aspect off getting more star muses Good. You get busy and tired chasing those dreams that you don't know what you're chasing in the air today and you after you got them. You just want more staff or more dreams that you think you will never end and you start to be more proud with more pride. And lastly, what will happen is friends who used to be our friends you started feel insecure and get Why do you feel that way? Because you are very afraid that would they will steal away or dreams or your business or whatever the actual you know anything about. Okay, you suddenly become very God over your money because if you think everyone wants your money but it's not really true or you allow money to control your life, that's what happened. Money was actually good if you actually achieve it with the right manner and achieve with the right are ethical means. I'm really amazed that actually, not many Salha both read today actually talk about Antico. We hate to actually achieve goals, basically just focus on how to achieve it, but it never really say what is the right way and wrong. I know in today's context is rather say what is right is wrong, but certain things are pretty off years so that you shouldn't do bad things. So I'm very surprised. Not many people start about debt and money is good if you used to grow once character, true helping artists and I'm surprised not any books or how did anybody actually thought about that about helping other people than yourself? All right, and money is good if you grow wealth toe help other people or it yourself and others as well. The Cuba is in others as well, not Jess yourself. A lot off self help bulls. I think that's the reason why is called self help books. You got the union. Help yourself by actually the secret to success. It's not just helping yourself, but you should also consider helping other people as well. And I explained why by helping more I helping others more will give you even more. So I said, I'll explain it on why you should do that. Okay, so the new proven go plainly, I'd be nearly all this year's looks like this. You re actually what you saw. Whatever you gain, it's based on what you saw. The others. So two others, anything you tend to really not very good benefits. The more you give and she the more you will receive. And I practice for all the years off my business. And this has proven very well in all respects on my life and also by giving and thankfulness first in our lives right. You actually has to achieve your angles by thinking off others first. There's a lot of some of those out there. Not many people actually mentioned about this, but actually the secret off, able to attain great success is my first understanding. All right, What you be should be grateful for and what you should be thankful for in your life. All right. So that you can use that as a basis to achieve angles, right by thinking off others first. Because once you start to realize what you're grateful for, thankful for you can use that as any months to actually encourage issue the push your true whatever thing that you want to achieve in your life. And you have a purpose for doing those goals as well. And this was very important to understand about gratefulness and others s well, so I designed this tree. Easy steps all right to help you before you even started. Go painting. And it goes like this. The first step is to understand what you are grateful for. The second step. It's about what experiences will make you happy, right? And what can I do to help others? There's a tree, Simple says, and I exercise. She is for you to do right to help you in this tree areas. So it looks something like this. Our show where to get him later on, And the dollar holdings as well. So the goal for this size is off. How you define your purpose and meaning in life. And that's really bother. I realized, Ah, lot of people who set up goals or resembles have never really identify. Why are they doing what I'm doing today? It'll just money, money, at least two more happiness. It's not true. Who? It's not true. There's a bigger meaning than that. Okay, you have been deceived by a lot of folks out there, all right? And the go is not the six security in money, but to use money, toe, benefit others and also help toe grow your character. That should be your motive in life is to use money to benefit others and also to grow your character. And I spend while it on OK, And you will help you. This is a leaf more fruitful and happy life. Think about it. All right. Why do you want to get on those money that you think all those nice car because you want You want to be happy in your life, right there is the Anglo by The problem is no all the time money will lead to more happiness on our money lead, more troubles, more expenses. And if you're not careful, so there is the reason why is the right way of thinking is that to be more thankful and so thinking are happy? Honest? I'll explain more as you do the exercises in the next couple videos explain. 4. Being Grateful Bring More Success: I'm looking forward to the future and feeling great Full for the pass by Mike. And it's a very interesting court because all right, we should look at our future by every feeling grateful for the things that happened in the past. And it's something that not many people do in planning for success. Okay? And is one of the reasons why I implemented this into this size to understand about what am I grateful for now or today?

In fact, compared to material things and more likely to become part off identity later on, whatever experience you go through in your life were actually more and create your identity in the future. For example, let's say if I am problem in a very nasty environment, were not so good. Parents already escorting me and Kenny me. So if I grow up, I thought that should be the way life should be. Right? So most off, our childhood character will more upto adulthood. And there were actually position how our identity in the future will be based on our experiences in the puss. So you under some off your experiences, but not your possession. The cars you drive always doing determine. Uh, you actually. But your experiences will give you all right.

And and studies have shown all right that if you actually made a lof small pleasures on a weekly basis on a daily basis. Right off experiences. It tend to give you the same amount of pleasure as it is the first day. You drive a very expensive, uh, spots, all right. And the difference is that this, too, is she's very affordable, but this is not fallible. And this one And she gave me a set. The only maybe for wow after driving for a while, maybe you're few s i s You were on the first day. It's quite Kansi s just to have the dem borough pressure. Okay, because there'll be people who enjoy driving every day. But I'm saying that in terms of cost wise, this is definitely more expensive than these two. Okay, so that's why small pleasures are better than beat once. So these are some of the ideas are healthy indulgence taken to under Ah, $15.

So it's better off with frequent doses off Luffy Ah, things right that he research has shown happiness is closely aligned with the frequency off pleasures. And that's the reason why I recommend those precious early on. Because ah, yes, sure that you frequently may also happy you do small either gestures. You make your life happier in general, obviously, the experiences. So what's the reason why I'm telling you this? Because this is a really seen arrow. A lot of people today are spending more than they can afford, so don't spend more than you can forgive. Example. Let's say your current salary is 2000. Firing all the U. S. A month sounds not too bad. Our consider quite high p. So he's had to buy this car. All right, it's this far are re cars $240,000. Okay, that's very expensive. Alright, The a 10 year alone that stood out and that have include petro and every ages Morning that . But this doesn't example. So you 11 finals for mine. Just because off your pride that you want to drive in on this nice for a re car, no doubt is nice. No doubt is fast. No doubt you people start looking at you differently and know that people think you are very, very reached because of the status and the brain off the car that portrays to other people . Ndld You may look very rich. You may feel that you are superior to other people, but you actually working much harder to pay the bills that no one sees. Can you relate to that? All right, I know a lot of friends who have decent and the re spot drive a very expensive car are looking so hot just because they want to maintain a very nice car so that they can show or have high price. Is that really worth it? To be honest? Okay, so let me show you are not a senior are much more wiser way to do this. Okay, Is there are investing in media row things that what I call expenses invest on things that you grow your wealth like housing or investments. Right? So the same thing. I have a current century off. 2005. All right. I took a loan. A Zamboni. The house is also this price. And because I bought a house, it's an investment. I ready off for 2 11 5 It's an example. Okay, So I've still left your balance off a profit off $5 plus to the Fife. This example or it is best in there. Oh, okay. So you can see you're comparing to the previous example I got. I don't got more money to spend. By the end off the 10 year loan, I still have $240,000 off cash sitting there for me to sell to gain more wealth, right? For my own. So is a strong advocate or buying investments, and not by larger re cars. You only buy all those things if you can afford it. We kind of for it. Please don't date laws. Just leave those kind of lifestyles. It's not worthy is really not well, because Indiana Day, you're just starting yourself just to maintain those lifestyle. For what reasons is to show off. Is it really what you want to do in your life? All right, So if you really insist you want on a nice card is what you can do. You can render those off happiness. Let me Sherry. What? This concept is very interesting. All right. So she more wisely photo then on something you cannot fought, then to show off. Okay. Five zambo. Some people really want toe have nice KB highways or true or driving a luxury car. What you can do is to rent one occasionally. Why not? It's very cheap to rent luxury car or caving hideaway in any country. And you can indulge yourself. Just ran for one or two days. It will be expensive in Singapore. Writings about for 300 for us, just for one day. Rental for sports car. For Ari. It's much more than 1000 plus for this one day. All right? I mean, you really where you want toe enjoy that kind off truth. And why not? Just raining? Don't own it. But rain it. Okay, no one will know. Anyway, I set yourself so there's no hustle and there's no high maintenance or repairs and actually did what I just tell you. I rented this most of these comfortable. I always wanted to write a sports car, so I rented this car singable. Just fall one day. I just have a feel how you feel slight to drive a nice car and with the top open. And I drove it with my wife and what I realized when I did this is a size because I enjoy the moment on driving it. I posted on Facebook people. You don't thought I owned the car, but I told her I didn't own a car, just rented the car was right on this, okay? And I didn't want people have the impression they're trying to show off. I don't try to show. I just want to enjoy the car, that's all. How enjoy the feeling or driving this car. So what happened is I drove it, and for the first hour, it was really exciting. You know, the feeling is very nice to smell. The letters write nice things nice, but after I drove about three hours a day, I start to realize it's just a car and there's nothing just a car you move from point a to point B, that's all. How much can you really enjoy? Yeah, you will see people looking you. That's all about this call Price. And, uh, it's a nice feeling, but it's not really nice, you know, sense that people get jealous off you also as well that you don't you don't tell you. All right, so I realize that in it I really don't go. I didn't buy this car In the end, I just rented the car just with experience. Do I read this today? Yes, I do. Sometimes it's to make myself indulgent with happiness, just for one. But it's better than owning it, all right? And I ready occasionally, just for special occasions. So there's a real example that I'm doing it on myself to show you that I'm really doing what I'm teaching you right now. So experiences as she brings you lots off, joy by your spirit don't have to be expensive, right? Neither do your purpose and passion as well. You need to remember the ally experiences to be in tune with what makes you happy. At the end of the day, if you're doing something for the sick off gaining it. It's no movie because and, you know they realize after you got it, you pay the bills more expensive, like own expensive car. You get more miserable because of the high BYU's rather than making yourself happy. And it's something that not maybe, look at, you know, many looking at getting a lot of, Ah, nice cars and nice how they don't know what that means, Keenan's and the cause off. It s well in terms, off experiences or buying experiences. You should always remember to make sure they are affordable or emission. They are fallible, so that experiences, I say. For example, you can think about it's like travel overseas off a shot, affordable wrote tree adventure with your friends and family. Spend time in nature that's free. But chase tickets to sympathy, opera or sporting events. Maybe always wanted to go toe NFL match washing a premium movie, the premium place or concert, or maybe even be avoided. This free or less need time. I Maybe you'll learn something out there. You cancel London use cube. Do you never learn before? All right, that can be learned. A new language. You are learning new school cooking, cycling or whatever that you always wanted to do. But I never got a chance to for geography and those of your life photography. Some people like to run a marathon, never run before they got a chance to run one. So you can maybe plan for that. If the skydiving is your thing, you can go skydiving or try something adventures and you never try before all UK even if I would encourage you came enjoying a Christian mission treatment. We never go one before. I'm definitely sure you will change. Uh, they are prospects, thief off life as well. So I did. I did the last one, which is Christian mission treat and really eyes experience That really, really transformed me a lot in the way I look at the world and the things that I, uh, more once in a bus, this another picture of me in the stormy Really, I showed earlier, right? This is there were more pictures off them. They can see how poor the country wants. More pictures off from the slum area shopping in my previous reuses felt. So when I went through this experience, it really, really change my dimension off looking other people, all right, and made me realize how fortunate I am to have a rooftop, clean roads, clean water, clean everything once you go through the experience. All right? It's a different thing. You know, some people say, you know, you don't, uh you can just give your money today. Many doors. Actually, I bet to differ. You need to experience it yourself to be transformed. You cannot just give money to people to do the work. The child that Bo will go experience it for yourself, right? I know. Asking that you had to go. Such poor areas. Biking do simple things, like in your neighborhood and other things show you later on.

Helping Others Brings More Success: money has never made men happy, nor will eat. There is nothing in its nature to produce heaviness. The more one Hess, the More One Ones by Benjamin Franklin. Very, very interesting, called Very true that money cannot make men happy. But why? It's Harry one chasing money. Okay, that's what the world is telling us. So this the reason why in order to shape our thinking that we shouldn't chase just money, we should also think about what can I do to help Otto people? And if you understand and can understand this logic, you start to realize that more people you have, the more you will gain. It's a seat in life, not just money, but a lot of other things as well. Here's a Keating spent on others and not Jess on yourself. Most most South. How books. Actually, in fact, about seven yourself already. This would call self help book. I kiss all right, but they never thought much about serving. Are the people helping other people? So there was this group of students and you will see off British Columbia. We'll give each fight all us all $20 okay? And the students were randomly assigned to spend the cash on either themselves or other people party. And so some will give money to themselves. Some will be assigned to give to someone else. Okay, that wants the experiment. So those who have been told to spend others people report actually feeling happier. Okay, The reason is the emotional reward off social spending can actually even be the data on a memory skin being skin, it has proven that every time and we help someone true physical means all time on money reward. We tend to feel ah, happier. Okay, Almost anything that we do to hurt others. 10 to improve our happiness. So the true formula are being more happy in life is not by getting more money by. It's actually by helping others for us. If you learned a master this I can guarantee you will be much happier in your life. The reason why you're not happy today because you have never, ever consider off helping others first before. Happy yourself. That's the reason why. OK, try doing it and then you will realise Nice expert. And you you agree? Me? What? I just tell you. So this was the was trying to tell us or tricked us into thinking right that the order books every really in a lot of education touts us when we were young, all right, to be happy, right? That she the whole wall right, programs us to always think for ourself first. I don't know why, but it's very true. I read a lot of self Hubble's. I think they should not change the calories are you should be. How audible or something All right, the true true true meaning our successes not by helping yourself us actually is actually but happy. Others first, because in that way, when you have others, you start to be more happy in your life, and it's something everybody wants. Everybody wants to be a who doesn't want to be happy in your life, all right, But upon the whole world, all the books are telling us that the more we help ourselves in achieving Southern things are the more happy we are. But it's not really true, all right. Helping others is something most developed countries do not think about often because we live in a society where we're so busy working were also bothered by paying BYU's all we can just walk and we'll we'll jazz to pay those views or credit card fees. And then you just been one day on a Sunday on your savings and indulge yourself. We've catches and you thought that would be you happy or whatever cars Are you on the drive ? We thought they would be happy, but you need me happy for wow. All right doesn't last forever, because those are not lasting experiences. Songs and cultures today also discourage us to help artists by actually promotes hate instead. I mean, if you are actually study the worse or cultures that are helping around us today. There are a lot of songs that promote hit. I remember in the nineties there are low love songs. Okay, I love love songs, Okay, but unfortunately, today we have a lot of songs that promote head and promote. I don't want to mention them, but it's a lot off hatred out there, and I think it somehow has make us for gotten about the meaning oflife okay out there. It's very sad because the world for bringing us in the way that we think that we should hit me, but just to be cool or dressing, so the way to be cool But it's not really cool idea today. Everything about it. Okay, so these are things you need to be a way off. So what I'm trying to encourage issue is to help others for us. Okay. When you give, you are likely to get back sometimes immediately, sometimes is true. Others. And this is very, very, very true. I remember when I waas ah, practicing this in my own business. All right. Always trying to find ways to help out of businesses or other clients first before you asking about one. So, for example, I have cases where I was very new in my business. That time in blogging, no one know me. So what I did waas that I went to other bloggers and asked who are residents? Who asked him, Can I help you in getting more awareness for your business by doing an interview? And they also yes, already asked anything. I just wanted the interview day, that's all. And I did that same person size. Suddenly his audience got the new me as well because he published a view on his website as well and actually benefited from it indirectly. So that's one example off. How helping on this came in. If it's you more and she when you help out this, you do help yourself eventually. Just that you don't realize it. He may not be monetary. Sometimes it can be true referrals and other things as well. E g. Also, by having other give others the impression that you are generous and you are helpful. And normally, anyone who is portrayed as being these two things tend to get more our responsibilities and more business as well. Keep a simple. You don't have to be complicated and make sure when you have others it should be sincere and not for agenda to gain something it does not always. I need to involve money. When I first under my basis, I had no money, no much money, only all time. That's how I have got. I wasn't working so full time at home doing my block. I have so much time, OK, I have no money. All right, so why I told me. But it's accepted so much time. I know I find time to help others in areas than any help, so some people need programming. Some people need help in graphics, which I am very tired that with. So I have them in those two areas. Right? And I got referrals. Alright. In return, I didn't also it okay. And as you spent, or you can simply spend time doing tasks. Then giving money helps impact your life more. Ah, lot off, people, uh, always think that, you know, uh, give money to the charity. It's a good thing I see is a bad thing, but it doesn't really transform your life. Or does is this plants sees and help people who are doing the if you really where we want to change your life or impair online. I would highly encourage you to be involved in the actions or task that you're doing to help others. Really? And it's getting money. So if I example that, say, your uncle's come to you, say I need help in my shop. All right? Can you give me some borrow me some cash? So reading and getting some cash for his business. Why? I know you offer your help for free to how a hist? All right to helping investors when I give money. All right, and by helped by doing that, you know, any show they uncle that you care by also how my uncle to make more money in the business and business skills at the same time. So, you see, that's where the benefit comes. Okay, True, The experiences and they were last a lifetime. All right, so they actually rewards for helping. All right? Actually, many rewards, all right. And one of the biggest reward is that by helping on this, he has proven more people's character are in ways that you would not imagine you more you to be a better person, more generous person. Eso more you to be more patient. But it s well, Jenna Nervy. You mean you're more happy? That's what should I know? That's a sure thing that I have helped so many people in my life. He made me so happy that I really enjoyed me. His prices from the from the tears and you see on people's eyes when you have other people , all right, it's a hobby proceedings. In other people's point of view, there's something that not many people are training. I remember when sometimes during arguments, Alright, Some people always look at the point of view and we will look at our point of view. And then it will be our human saying who is right, who is wrong. But you sit down and think about it. Always ask yourself this question. If I am in his position, how would I feel? All right? Also saw that question and then you will not get so angry so easily. Right? And I was able to live because because I have a hot off helping other people you don't have Ah, hot off helping people or mind set off helping other people yours only thing for yourself you will never, ever see out of people's point of view off you all right, and you only can learn that from practicing off, helping us first. Then you can actually see the other person's point of view, and it's really, really very powerful. I want so many hard humans because of the strategy alone. Okay, that's very powerful. People love toe of you more because people see you as a person wearing toe help, okay? And people will trust you more and trust it's something that is universal and useful in all aspects of life. or work for projects and everything else. People were for more business off task to you. And this is very, very true, because when people see you as a person, there's really in to help others where you build more trust, more business will definitely company away. And mum, people refer them to you because they know you are trustworthy person and your healthful s . Well, all right, I believe you know someone your life who is very helpful. Right?
