“Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, “What’s in it for me?””
— Brian Tracy, Author
This is a nice quote, however, I don’t agree 100% with it. A majority of successful people will strive to help others, however, not all of them will do that for the right reasons. The same applies to the definition of unsuccessful people. I don’t think that all unsuccessful people only thinks in what’s in it for them, it has been proven that among all social classes of the world, the lower classes of society are usually the ones that genuinely show more love and care for their fellowbeings while most successful peole will help in somewhat and with what is left of them. The lower classes do much more than that, they usually donate more of their time, their talents and their possessions to help others who are in need.
Most of the time, successful people will also do a good deed because they want to be on the media, to become even more popular than they already are and to show off to the world how good they really are, so, is it seeking self-gratification, self-promotion really helping others? or are they really seeking to help others or to help themselves first?
I know and I’ve known many successful and unsuccessful people throughout my life and, a great number of both classes have surpreended me in both ways. So, the above quote does have some truth to it but, it is not completely accurate with its definition.
I hope you might take some advantage with it and that will make you ponder wether is true or not.
Have a wonderful day!
