Just allowing others to help you more will make them like you more. Sean McCabe and Ben Toalson touch on this in this episode. Take a listen to the audio link above.
Think about those life long friendships. The ones where you would do almost anything for that person and not expect anything in return.
Those friendships are out there but as we get older they are harder to form. We start to get busy we have more obligations more constraints on our time. This leads us to having to say no to things to expect things in return.
What if you took a step back and offered to help someone with no expectations. No hidden agenda. Would that not make you feel good. Would that not make you closer to that person.
Simply giving without expectation will allow you to form deeper connections with people.
