I have a gift. A talent. A passion.
I help others become better, see more clearly, find a path where they feel one didn’t exist.
When I am giving this gift to others, I find happiness and creative joy.
Some people recognize the value in my gift, want more of it, have the means, and are willing to pay for my talents.
They understand the value I offer, and the law of compensation.
They will also receive value for the gifts they have been given because they recognize value.
When I receive financially, I find happiness in giving my gift, AND I receive compensation.
The compensation is a bonus.
I am compensated well by these folks.
Works out pretty well for all because of the value I provide.
I enable others to find happiness and abundance in their own lives.
There are times when I have been short sighted, and focused only on money…
Receiving before giving…
The opportunities to serve dry up.
When I focus only on money I only find internal and external struggle.
When I focus on money first, I recognize neither the happiness from giving nor compensation.
I lose some of my enthusiasm for life.
As soon as I begin giving again, momentum shifts as well.
It’s happened a few times over the past year or so.
I continue to be taught a valuable lesson.
Our gifts and talents ultimately belong to society.
They are not our own property.
Serve. Give. Help others create.
And you will be well taken care of in this life in both happiness and financial prosperity.
There’s an abundance available to which most are blind.
If we approach this life in scarcity, like we need to scrap and fight for every dollar, we will find ourselves scrapping and fighting for every dollar…
And feel poor in spirit during this lifetime.
If we recognize the abundance of the available, share our gifts with the world, and see that there is plenty to go around…
We will find abundance in both happiness and wealth.
This lesson appears over and over in my life, and at least for today, I can say I see clearly.
Give and much be given.
Withhold, and much will be withheld.
Go out and serve someone today.
Find the joy in giving first, and you will be rewarded abundantly.
I plan to do the same.
