The formula for outstanding success in life and business? Pretty simple, really. We can't overturn the basic yet profound law of sowing and reaping. Some people call it the law of the farm. Others refer to the Newtonian formula of action-reaction.
If we want apple pie, we have to plant apple trees. No trees, no apples. No apples, no apple pie.
"If you want a friend, be a friend." Emerson
When it comes to the economy, we first have to provide a product or service before we get paid. Success, then, is predictable. If your product or service helps more people, you profit.
Life is Fair
People often say, "Life's not fair," but actually, this process of service before profit is very fair. It makes perfect sense.
It also works in other areas of life, not just the economy. As Emerson said, "If you want a friend, be a friend." People return a smile to someone smiling at them. In other words, action, reaction.
Improving your bottom line becomes a matter of improving your level of service.
