Believe in the magic in the power of each thought. For you are like a lovely flower, growing in a pot. You can do it, whatever goals you have ever thought and you can grow your roots and widen yourself to a great big plot. And don't let yourself be put on the spot. And whatever effort goes out is the same as you have brought.
Takes time sometimes, don't get distraught. It'll be turned toward you every deed or need you've ever bought. Smile,you'll be happier, that's what I've learned and I've taught.

An Inspirational Thought, Motivational Thought -
Build Others And You'll Build Yourself In Return
By Josh Hinds (c)

Build others and you'll build yourself at the same time - A while back I had the good fortune to see the truth in this statement first hand. I had been working and coaching with a person -- together we were exploring ways to increase the value of their web site.

As we brainstormed what seemed like idea after idea a plan began to formulate that he agreed would work for them.

I should note here that the person wasn't a paid client at the time. It was just someone I'd known for a bit and from what started into a general conversation we moved on into a brainstorming session.

A funny thing happened about a day or two later. I received an instant message out of the blue from a fellow who introduced himself and said that he'd talked with so and so and was interested in talking with me about how I could help him.

The result was a client that wanted to retain me for a brainstorming session. I've had a happy client ever since. There's no doubt in my mind this was a direct result of my willingness to freely help another person.

The moral of the story here is pretty simple. Help others to achieve what they want and before you know it the word will get out. Often in a BIG way. It's worth developing the reputation as a person who is genuinely out to help another.

We give freely of our time not because of what we get in return, yet it always does come back to benefit us in some way.

Yours in success,
Josh Hinds
