“If you go looking for a friend, you’re going to find they’re very scarce. If you go out to be a friend, you’ll find them everywhere.”
– Zig Ziglar, best-selling author and motivational speaker
Among the many positive qualities exhibited by Zig Ziglar was his focus on giving, and being generous to others. In this quote, he encourages all of us to give of ourselves through acts of sincere friendship – which in turn will encourage those around us to reciprocate.
The key is that we go first, instead of hoping that others will go first. There may be potential risk and the possibility of rejection – however, we know that without such risk, our lives will be a bit emptier.
Make the extra effort today to further extend your friendship efforts to those around you. Take note of the positive reactions you receive as a result of your sincere gestures.
