S:0120 Principle: Attraction Principle #5 – Add Value Just For The Joy Of It

(Principles are basic truths that, when applied, cause success to come to you easier and quicker.)


In accounting terms, adding value leads to sustained profitability.

In personal terms, the more value you add to others, the more you’ll attract the people you most want to attract. And it’s people who bring opportunities, not objects. Attract the right people and the rest will follow.

So, what’s the point?

The key is add value to others at virtually no cost to yourself AND because you ENJOY it. Many well-intentioned people have the notions of contribution, making a difference and altruism all messed up with the notion of adding value. So adding value gets a bad rap because it’s so ‘expensive’ for the giver.

That’s not useful. If it’s costing you, you’re doing it inefficiently or doing the wrong thing.

The other mistake people make is they add value in order to be attractive. Now, that is logical, however it’s the JOY you feel when providing value that is what makes you Irresistibly Attractive; not the quantity of value that you are adding. Huge difference. And, if you can’t find joy in adding value, it’s because your needs aren’t met. If they were, adding value would be a joy. Simple as that.
