It took me 20 years to discover this basic formula for life. The formula itself is quite obvious and has been told time and time again, but once applied it works wonders with friendships, relationships, careers, goals, etc.
Here it is, my friend: You get what you give.
Sounds a bit obvious, I know, but seriously consider the application.
If you want people to be interested in you, be interested in them. If you want friends who will be there for you, be a real friend. If you want someone to like you, then genuinelylike them. Stop thinking about what you can get and start thinking about what you can give!
It’s that simple.
