If I’m being completely honest with myself, I must admit, that giving always feels better than getting. Of course it’s nice to get a compliment, a gift, a promotion… & who doesn’t like to receive love. But anyone who has honestly & genuinely given any of these things out freely to others, KNOWS which one really feels best. Getting feels good for a little while, but giving brings about a far more lasting sense of happiness, peace & freedom… when it’s genuine. The goal for today: focus on giving & let the getting take care of itself! Have a great day everybody!
“A man cannot help himself except by helping others” ~Unknown. I was once told that I couldn’t help others until I helped myself first… but this quote would suggest the opposite. Every human being is born with the ability to GIVE Love & therefore… we are ALL qualified to help others. I may not be able to transmit certain information to you because I don’t possess it, but that doesn’t mean I can’t help you at all. The goal for today: help someone in whatever way you can… because helping others is the ONLY way to truly help yourself! Have a great day everybody!
“If I love you, what business is it of yours” ~Goethe. This is one of the most important points in the history of humankind! Years ago, I broke off a relationship & people thought I was crazy. They said… “She is attractive, smart, treats you right & has a good job. Why would you leave her?” The answer is because I didn’t love her. Love isn’t about what your significant other has to offer you, it’s about how you feel about them… PERIOD! If I feel good about giving to you, then your looks, your pedigree & your credit score don’t matter. The goal for today: know that real Love is about how you feel about someone… not what you can get from them! Have a great day everybody!
Bill Wilson, a co-founder of AA, tried to help a lot of people get sober & it didn’t work. One day, when he was just about to throw in the towel, he said to his wife “I give up! This isn’t working… none of these guys are staying sober”… his wife replied “But you are Bill.” Here we are… 83 years later & that statement by Lois Wilson is still saving lives. The person receiving help may or may not get & stay well… but the person giving help will ALWAYS triumph, over any & all difficulties. The goal for today: don’t forget this Master Law of Life… giving is far more powerful than getting! Have a great day everybody!
The best (actually the ONLY) way to be surrounded by people that lift you up… is to be the type of person that lifts others up. The Law of Attraction says we will be surrounded by people that are like us… or are at least trying to be like us. That means I can’t be a bad person & expect a bunch of good people to flock to me. If I want to attract good people to me… I must first strive to be a good person myself. The goal for today: be the type of person that lifts others up… focus on being a “liftor”, rather than a “liftee”! Have a great day everybody!
At 32 my life was coming undone & I had to find a better way of life because the way I was living nearly killed me. I found someone to help me & became willing to do whatever it took to fix it. I read… I studied… I learned… I put in the work to change my life… & as a result, things began to change for the better. The mistake that nearly ended me was that I was more concerned with getting than giving… I was selfish. Giving, rather than getting, is 100% guaranteed to make our lives better. It is impossible to give FREELY of yourself & be unhappy. The goal for today: give! Have a great day everybody!
“Giving, rather than getting, will become the guiding principle” ~Anon. When I am focused on what I can contribute to life & the people around me, I’m happy. When I focus on what I’m not getting from life & the people around me, I’m unhappy. When I feel frustrated, unfulfilled or dissatisfied… it’s because I’m focused on what I am getting or not getting. When I feel content, fulfilled & satisfied… it’s because I’m focused on giving freely of myself. The goal for today: know that real Happiness comes from giving! Have a great day everybody!
