Most people focus their energy on taking but not giving.
People think they are not ready to give back. They think they can only do it when they are ready or when they’ve taken enough.
But the truth is, if you wait too long, you will never be ready. So you might as well start to give back now.
Because you’re almost obligated. No matter where you’re in your life, you’ve already learned and gained enough to give back.
You see, giving back doesn’t mean losing what you have. If anything, it only adds to what you have.
You become richer not by how much money you have, but by how many lives you touch.
When you give back, you contribute to the circulation. Someone gives to you and you give to someone else. It’s a simple concept yet missed by many.
So don’t stop the circulation of the universe. Instead, be a part of it.
The selfless act of giving is something to be cherished and if people could be a bit less selfish, they could realize the power of giving back.
It’s a powerful concept because it allows you to expand your network, meet new people and inspire the new generation.
You should never give back with the expectation of receiving something in return. That’s not a good strategy.
But if you keep on giving, you’ll soon learn that what goes around, comes back around.
Now, are you ready to give back?
Great. But what can you give back?
Well, that’s up to you. But the better question is, what can you afford to give back?
You can give money or you can gift your time. Those are the most popular ones but you’re not limited by them.
You can teach something you know or you can lend a hand to someone in need. The sky’s the limit.
The point is to get used to the concept of giving back. Once you figure out how it works, you can apply it to anything you do in life.
Giving back is about creating value for others. And it works great when it comes from your heart and you do it with something you’re passionate about.
You don’t need to wait until you’re ready. Just pick a topic or an area you’re passionate about and start to create value before you extract some.
While most people try to take from the world, the rest of us can focus on giving back. Because not only it’s the secret to living but it’s also the only way to stand out and leave a legacy behind.
No one becomes famous for how much they’ve taken. People are remembered for how much they’ve given.
When you incorporate this simple strategy in your life you get to see the magic happen in front of your eyes.
It will take you to the places you could not have imagined before. and you will meet the most incredible people. You know why?
Because like-minded people attract each other and it all starts with you and your generosity.
When are you ready to give back?
