Be of value

When you’re always worried about what you can get out of the deal, you won’t get very much. Yet when you focus on what you can give, a whole universe of positive possibilities will open up to you.

There is always work that needs to be done. There is always a way to make a positive contribution. There are countless ways to be of service, to be of value. And to be of value is the very best way to create value, in your own life and in the world around you.

You don’t need anyone else’s permission to make a positive contribution to life. All you need to do is open your eyes.

Look around you, with a genuine sense of caring for the needs of others. In every direction, you’ll see countless opportunities for making a positive difference.

If you seek real confidence, richness and fulfillment, then step up, take the initiative, and be of real value. It will bring true, lasting and meaningful success.

— Ralph Marston
