You want me to do what?

Malcolm Forbes

Malcolm Forbes

“You can easily judge the character of others by how they treat those who can do nothing for them or to them.”

~ Malcolm Forbes (1919-1990) American Publisher

The hardest thing to do for most anyone is to help others who cannot or will not help them in return. It is human nature to do something for someone with an expectation of getting something in return from them. This is the way we are taught as children and it’s also the way business is done. You receive goods and services in exchange for money. In today’s world, nothing is rarely done for free. When something is done for free, people think there must be a catch attached to the favor. When there isn’t a catch, then they are grateful for the favor. Doing something for someone else without any expectation is one of the greatest experiences you can give to yourself. So, in effect, when doing this you gain satisfaction for yourself and earn respect from others who see your selfless actions.

  1. Thanks for this thought. I think you’re on to something.

  2. I want you to do me a favor: be more healthy and happy in China! 🙂

  3. You do a lot for others without expectations and gain not only respect, but also friendship and love from the people you help, and maybe also gain some admirers.
    Your blog inspires me to be a more tolerant and giving person. Thanks!
