I meet a lot of people who tell me they want to help people. Most of the ideas are based on some kind of corporate jargon, a soft approach to dealing with people. Very much like the idea of constructive criticism, get real there is only criticism and you either cry or decide to grow.
Life becomes simple when you drop the belief of how should your life be. My friend Steve Maraboli has a word which summarizes this it is ‘Unbullshitafied’. I love words like that where you know exactly what the word means without the need for a dictionary.
So how should we be helping people?
Firstly we need to think like entrepreneurs and not employees, people need solutions to their problems, ways to make money, save money and increase there productivity (simply put is that means to allow them more time to make more money).
So when you think of helping people, be practical – otherwise, you will start selling bullshit and the worst thing that can happen is when you start believing your own bullshit. Stop and think about the things you do – don’t waste time trying something that will not be a real solution for people.
