“You can have everything in life you want, if you’ll just help enough other people get what they want.” – Zig Ziglar
There are many schools of thought around what you can and can’t have in life. I personally like Zig’s philosophy. We are only as good as the people around us. If you have a supportive network there is no reason you can’t have everything you want in life. You just have to decide what it is and go for it. On the other hand, when people come to you and tell you what they want to do, help them find what they are looking for.
Be willing to be a connector and others will be willing to do it for you. Be generous with you time and generous with your contacts. Contacts are currency. They are as valuable as any other commodity. Try it out, send a tweet introducing two people who should know each other. Nothing may come of it or something you could never foresee.
