As Sir Winston Churchill said, “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”
How are you giving back to life? We are living in a collective – a shared space and time. Every action you take has a corresponding re-action, a ripple effect with positive or negative consequences. When you give you start a chain of good… so give freely. Giving is a win-win. Research has shown that giving is actually good for you – it can reduce stress and even lower cholesterol levels. You can make a positive difference in other people’s lives, and in turn, gain a greater sense of fulfillment and wellbeing. Start where you are. In addition to money, you can offer your time, knowledge, talents, encouragement, or even small acts of kindness. Most of all, remember that to some your presence is the greatest present you can give.
Until next time, remember – it’s your divine life, live it to the fullest. The power is in your hands!
With Purpose & Power,
