Helping Others Succeed, Can Be Your Greatest Success

“It is not true that nice guys finish last. Nice guys are winners before the game ever starts.” – Addison Walker

Our greatest successes in life are often found in helping others succeed. Our most lasting and fulfilling achievements are often earned by helping others fulfill theirs. In process of elevating others, we have to elevate our-self.

In school, I heard a story of a farmer who was known for producing best crops, he used to share his best seeds with other neighbor farmers.

When asked why, he said, “It is a selfish act. Winds collect pollens and carry it to adjacent fields.  If my neighbors use the best crop, the quality of my crop would also go up.”

What seeds are you sharing with others?
