What Side Are You On?

What can you do for me?

What can I do for you?

What can you do for me?

What can you do for me?

Two simple questions but very different from each other.

One question is you taking something of their service without anything back to them.

The other question is asking what you can do to help them. You are giving your time and effort towards something that can help the other individual.

It doesn’t seem like much a of difference, but to the person you’re communicating with it is.

What’s the other person going to think if you only want to receive something without helping them in return? I’m willing to bet they will be reluctant to help you.

Start asking other people what YOU can do for THEM and see how the situation turns out.

The only part to this is that you have to be genuine and actually want to help someone. People can tell who is a bunch of fluff and who is the real deal.


There is a law out there that states whatever you give, you will receive the same back but multiplied by 10.

Whether it be money, time, wisdom, labor, or love you will receive that back and even more.

In order for this work, you will need to be grateful for what you already have in your life.

From there, start finding ways to help others in everyday situations.

Give a couple more dollars on a tip. Help the old lady taking her groceries to the car. Volunteer your time at the animal shelter or daycare. Pay for someone’s meal. Hold the door open for a random person.

It doesn’t have to be anything huge. Anything that can help someone out or make their day a little bit better is all it takes.

Take some time to see what side of the question you’re usually on and evaluate what side you really want to be on. You may be on the “What can you do for me?” side and not even realize it.

I can say that life is a lot better from the view point of figuring out ways to help others in any way I can. Life is more fulfilling this way.

Are you a giver or a taker?

Thanks and Be Great,
