“You can get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want.”Zig Ziglar

In today’s competitive industry, it’s so easy to be swallowed up by the waves of technicalities and strategies that one forgets a basic time-tested principle: helping others.

Successful author and entrepreneur Zig Ziglar believes that it takes more than ingenuity and forcefulness to reach success. In his book “Zig Ziglar’s Secret to Closing the Sale,” he reiterated the power of helping others in working one’s way to the top. Lending a hand does lend you a hand, but only a few people actually realize the importance of a symbiotic relationship amongst peers and customers.

From collaboration to making personal connections with customers, thinking outside one’s limited perception is an important factor to have in life, especially at work. This social activity provides a safety net for the changing economy, that up to 80% of businesses use social collaboration tools for enhancing business processes. It makes running a business challenging yet fun and mind-broadening.

A proverb says, “Kings do not have friends, only subjects and enemies.” Being alone on top isn’t as liberating as most people think. In an article by M. Ena Inesi of London Business school and Adam D. Galinsky of Kellogg Graduate School of Business, they revealed that “power weaves a jaundiced and cynical psychological web. In the face of favors, the powerful see selfishness, refuse to reciprocate, strangle trust, and ultimately feel less committed. It is these psychological and social processes that leave the powerful sitting ever more alone at the top.”
