We are here to add what we can to life, not get what we can from it.
Life is definitely a game of give and take. After all, you give a little here, you take a little there. And it is this give and take that adds vitality, vim and vigor to living.
When you give the best of yourself to those around you, you give the greatest gift of all. You can light up the world of another person by giving them a little attention, a little appreciation. You can make a world of difference by consistently giving life your very best shot, never backing away from the challenges you encounter daily.
We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give.
Sir Winston Churchill
The true champions have long ago learned that they get the most out of life by giving themselves away. As a matter of fact, they find that the more that they give the more they have to give. Without a doubt, the gift of giving is a priceless present that never runs out or gets used up. And best of all, the act of giving brightens the day of both the giver and the recipient as well.
Anne Frank once said, No one has ever become poor by giving. No one could have said it any better. Contrary to popular belief, the richest amongst us are not necessarily those with the biggest bank accounts, the fanciest cars or even the nicest homes on the block. While these kinds of trappings are nice, they scarcely hold a candle to the feeling that accompanies giving others the best you have to offer and more.
It is every mans obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what he takes out of it.
Hey, dont get me wrong here. Theres absolutely nothing wrong with taking the best from life. After all, thats why its there in the first place. In fact, you should seek to grab a heaping helping of the very best life offers up daily. And dont be shy; you need to get in the game and live life for all it is worth, enjoying and relishing all of lifes wonderful moments.
But you also need to give back as much as you take, maybe even a little more. And dont worry one bit about running out of good things to shower on those around you, since theres plenty to go around way more than enough, as a matter of fact. Since you have more than you will ever need, why not get busy spreading it around, allowing others to experience some of the good life too?
We must give more in order to get more, it is the generous giving of ourselves that produce the generous harvest.
Orison Swett Marden
Once you understand how the act of giving paves the way for you to get more back in return, youll want to give and give and give some more. By sharing the pot of gold that is life, you multiply and magnify the good that the rest of the world can share with you.
Give more in order to get more, what a super duper formula for success! When you start giving, and then keep on giving, you will be astonished at how much life will give to you in return.
The Bottom Line: Want to get more out of life? Then get started giving and giving and giving some more.
