#jkltip Becoming wealthy or successful should simply give you more tools to be in the service of others, so feel free to work hard, grow a business, but the way you treat people should improve along with increases in the “getting rich” metrics
You Only Win If You’re A Good Person Too. I observed two very different approaches to life today. Without going into too much detail here are the two.
One I will disclose was Pat Woodcock, someone I’ve looked up to throughout life. No matter how much success he has, or how little he has to gain by interacting with people, he shares time and expertise in the service of others.
The second, who I will not disclose in trying to live up to the title of this post, has let success get to their head. It is quite evident they feel they are above others. They will not make the smallest of sacrifices to help a person in real need.
Now I tell these tiny, nondescript stories simply to say: You have not won in life, unless you are also a good person. This is exciting for me, because through decision making alone I can win. Everyone who is a grateful, self sacrificing, kind person immediately ranks above those who are not. The funny thing though, in extension of this is in order to be true to this word, we must also respect the rich, selfish, and cocky.
