Expanding the Pie

Happy Motivation Monday!

When I meet other health coaches, entrepreneurs, or anyone in similar industries, I always try to help them out.  I’m constantly connecting people to each other, talking to people about how to grow their own business, sharing my experience of transitioning from a corporate job to a health coach and entrepreneur, and when I get asked to do an event or workshop, I try to recommend others I know as well, so we can present together.

It may seem counterintuitive, on the surface – if I am working to grow my own business, why wouldn’t I want to keep my own connections, tips, and event invitations to myself?

I don’t see it that way at all, though!  Rather than fighting to make your own “slice of pie” larger, why not expand the entire pie?  By helping to create business and opportunities for those around me, we can help more people, attract more focus to health and wellness, and both enjoy more success!  If the pie gets bigger, each of our slices gets bigger as well.

So today, look for ways to help others and expand the pie.  Life isn’t about knocking each other down, it’s about building each other up.  And if we could all figure out a way to do that, what a happy place this world would be :).

Now it’s your turn … How will you expand the pie today?
