A Teacher at a large school gave every student a balloon. The students then had to inflate it, write their name on it, and throw it in the hallway. The Teacher then went into the hallway and mixed all the balloons.
The students were then given five minutes to go and find their own balloon. Despite a frantic search, no one found their balloon.
After five minutes of searching, the Teacher told the students to take the first balloon they found and hand it to the person whose name was written on it. Within five minutes, everyone had their own balloon (Source: Story told to me by Brian Willett).
Winning is a lot like this. When you wake up and focus on helping yourself win, you’ll probably come up empty.
When you wake up and focus on helping others win, you’ll win too.
Reflection Question: What are you doing daily to make sure you are focusing on helping others?
