Be Good, Do Good Achieve Success
Be Mutually Beneficial to See Success
Success means a lot of different things to different people. For some it means attaining wealth. For others it is attaining happiness. Still others it is reaching a point in your life where you’re comfortable. No matter how you define success, there is a way that you can achieve it: by being mutually beneficial in your relationships.
What does that mean? How do you get there? Let’s take a closer look to see how we can all be successful.
What Does Mutually Beneficial Mean?
The basic idea is founded on the notion that both parties win in any interaction. Being mutually beneficial means there isn’t one person that loses, and there isn’t one person that wins. In these cases, both people win.
In a business sense, it looks like this. You bring your vehicle in for auto body repair. We give you a quote on what the work will cost, and you agree to the terms. The end result is that you get a vehicle that has been restored to pristine condition and to its original safety standards, and we are able to stay in business to provide outstanding service to more customers down the road.
But this doesn’t just apply to business relationships. It applies to every interaction that you have with other people. Think about your friendships. If they are all one-sided (and we all had that friend at some point in our life), eventually you don’t want to be around that person anymore. The friendship dies off because you both aren’t gaining equally from it.
Think about your romantic relationships. Ideally it is a 50/50 and you meet in the middle. In truth, you have to be willing to do 100% because there will be a time when your partner can’t meet you in the middle. That’s fine because there will be a time when the roles are reversed. Problems occur when someone regularly does less than 50% and forces the other person to pick up the slack.
How to Be Successful
As you practice living life as a good person, one that insists that interactions be mutually beneficial, you will attract people with a similar mindset. Of course there will be those that sneak into your life and try to abuse your good will, you may get burned once or twice, but they will become easy to spot. When people know that you have their back, they will make sure that they have your back. In the end, you will profit because you helped others profit.
