BE OF SERVICE
We all dream of being successful, but so often, the pursuit of success becomes a practice of seeing how much we can get by—chasing money, vying for position, or seeking recognition—all of which will inevitably lead to an unfortunate demise.
The true path to lasting success isn’t found in material trappings, but instead, it’s gained through the unselfish act of contribution. Thanks to the reciprocal nature of the Universe, the more you give, the more you will naturally receive.
Fortunately, creating success is easy when you look at it through the lens of adding value. Here are a few tips to help you get started:
Maybe you’ve heard people talking about needing to get organized, and you’re a great organizer. Or maybe you know a couple of cooks looking for great ingredients, and you happen to be a great gardener. In order for an idea to be successful, it doesn’t have to be huge, it just has to be useful.
There’s a special kind of joy in giving when no one but you, your maker (and maybe your dog) knows that you have been of service to someone in need. Be a secret Santa, send some cash to someone who has lost a job, or secretly pay for a meal for a stranger at a restaurant.
Look around for opportunities to give without expectation of reciprocation. Leave a ridiculously large tip for the waitress, or buy groceries for the person in line behind you, or volunteer your time by helping a neighbor move furniture. Simply be of service in the spirit of good will, and see what happens.
So before you balance your books, determine your needs, or otherwise seek to improve your station, look around for what is needed that you can provide…then simply provide it.
