Who owes you a big one?

Who owes you a big one?

This is not a trick question. Really, think about the question again –

“Who owes you a big one?”

In fact, in the next minute or so, can you think of a dozen people who owe you a big one?

If you can’t come up with any names, it is time to re-visit your social currency. You have to give first to get something. If you have not given anything SIGNIFICANT to anyone recently, you won’t have anyone in the list for the answer above.

Rather than thinking about why this is the case, may be you can invest your energy in making some changes. What could you do in the next 60 days to positively change the answer to the same question:

“Who owes you a big one?”

You know as much as we sometimes hate our friends or family members for screaming at us, there are sometimes good reasons for that because they are trying to get a point across to you.

How would a normal being get opportunities to help someone that would make him/her owe ‘a big one’ to you. I love helping in whichever way be it financially, technically, anything. But it does not come back to them owning you…

Everyone needs help. The way to know what help they need is to “listen” to them – may be through their articles, interviews or on their websites. If you can help them increase their capacity in some way and do it consistently, one day they will notice you and start “listening” to you :)

not necessarily; sometimes you keep helping people and then thhey do not even think that they owe you anything.

in my opinion it depends on who you are helping, some people appreciate your help. and you will owe them big from the first time, some think it’s your duty to help them because they are your friends ,and some will never owe you anything
