A SUCCESS SECRET
A key for successful living may be stated in a simple short sentence. But like any great wisdom, it’s fairly useless unless we regularly apply it. For those of you who are doers, here’s the simple secret:
FOCUS MORE ON GIVING INSTEAD OF GETTING.
Many people don’t seem to realize that life is a transactional process - the more good we give, the more good we get.
This works in various ways. By giving positive acknowledgment, caring attention, emotional support and affection, we get solid friendships; by giving our best to our work, we get professional satisfaction and advancement.
However, if we try to get a lot while giving only a minimum, we may find that we end up only cheating ourselves. Just think: are you willing to be friends with those who want lots from you and give little back? Would you hire or promote someone who wants a big paycheck and gives little to the job and company success? I think not!
Also, giving is not true giving if done with an ulterior motive. So it’s important to give freely with no expectations. Trust in the law of energy flow and exchange - what we truly give is what we get.
Also important is to give to oneself. How good a life can we build if we don’t give to ourselves by conserving, saving, investing and developing ourselves?
In the end, all giving is a gift to oneself. So give more and have a fuller and more successful life.
Goodness and joy to all, Joseph.
