The joy of others’ success

There aren’t a lot of books or articles on “the top 5 ways to help others succeed.”  Unlike chess though, most of life is NOT a zero-sum game where someone else’s win means your loss.

It’s easy to understand this intellectually, but the true embodiment of understanding comes when you get the same spark of joy for someone else’s success as you would if it were your own.

Maybe you’ll spark joy just for helping, regardless of the outcome.  Bonus points if you can do this without expecting anything in return, although it’s highly likely that the universe will pay you back.
