Giving and Contribution

“What goes around comes around.”
– Unknown


What you get is closely related to what you give.  What you give comes back to you many times over.  Therefore, you want to focus on giving as much as possible.  Don’t be concerned about the getting.  Trust that once you give, the getting takes care of itself.

When I say giving, I am not talking about parting with your money or other possessions in a careless way.  By giving, I am talking about contributing value to other people.  The more value you can contribute to other people, the more you give and the more you will get back.

The sum of your giving is equal to what you give multiplied by the people who receive it.  So your challenge is to give as much as possible to as many people as possible.

Why do pop and rock stars have such rich lives?  Because they give a lot.  My life, for example, is better because of the work that Elvis Presley did and the songs he “gave” me.  I have spent a few hundred U.S. dollars buying Elvis records, CDs, and DVDs over the years.  I have worked a number of hours for those dollars, so in effect I have given Elvis (or his heirs) those hours of my time.  The same has been done by millions of people.

Combined, this has sent millions and millions of hours of work to the Presley family, which translates into a huge fortune.  In the same way, people have given us inventions, media, culture, medicines, e-mail and workbooks on life planning.  They have given all of this to the world and received great rewards for it.

Giving is so powerful because we live in an interconnected world.  Your life can be connected to millions of others. What you want out of life, to a very large extent, can be gained by other people giving it to you.
