Zig Ziglar

It’s easy to focus on ourselves. We have needs, wants, and pain. Sometimes our pain is mental. Sometimes it’s physical. It may be work stress, an illness, or a heartbreak.

Even more, our culture and society has focused on self-care to an extreme of missing the value of community-care.

In business, when we are hungry, we tend to forget others. We want to pitch too soon. We talk about our products too soon. We have lost our focus.

What makes a community like WordPress so valuable is our ability to collaborate and lift one another up.

Those things we strive for in our lives are there — waiting for us. Be it love, finance, friendship, joy, connection. As we serve others, helping them achieve their goals, we are rewarded.

Our reward isn’t instant. But it comes when we need it most.

Today’s Thought

I choose to help others achieve their goals. I take care of myself to give back to others. I am a helper. I am a giver. I am love.
