Give to Others First

As we move closer and closer to the end of another year and even an era, it is not the end of anything, but rather a new beginning. An opportunity for us to examine our worlds and for us to try to do things differently this time around, instead of pursuing success again next year, like you have done unsuccessfully for the past few years. Before the New Year even dawns, you should first discover what you need to become to attract the success you desire and then become just that, by investing heavily into your personal growth and development in 2013. As you gradually become more, each day, so you will inevitably attract more. Success is a becoming and an attracting, never something you pursue.

As you travel the path towards becoming the type of person you need to be to attract the success you desire in 2013, make a second crucial shift. Stop selfishly looking around your world looking for ways to make things better for yourself. This time around explore your environment and discover ways in which you can help others to get what they want. As Zig Ziglar said “The more people you help to get what they want, the more people will help you to get what you want”

Too many Unfilled Desires

I believe the reason so many people are struggling to break out of average lives, is that they are wrestling with fears, worries and concerns, which stem from, numerous unfulfilled desires. When you turn your focus away from yourself towards others or a cause bigger than yourself, you stop the turmoil in your head and instead you open your mind up to possibility. This shift helps you to invite meaning and fulfilment into your experience and allows you to live according to your highest and most joyful purpose.

Be of Service

By extending yourself towards the spirit of giving, you shift the stress and attention off yourself and you look around your world with a calm and easy set of eyes. The overwhelm you feel disappears, as if by magic and is replaced by a calmness, drive and passion, like you have never known before. The message everyone around you begins receiving, is one of grace and service. They no longer see someone who is looking to profit at any cost, even at the expense of others. They see someone, who authentically wants to support and be of service to others.

People Mirror our Behaviour

We mirror the behaviour of the people around us and so when you are in the modality of offering service, supporting and helping, everyone around you will respond to you in the same way, looking for ways to assist and support you in return. As you attempt to help others you remove your own ego from the equation and it stops being all about you and instead becomes about “US”. People see you genuinely offering service without any expectation of receiving anything in return. The only reward you should ever expect for your giving, is the joy, giving itself brings to you.

Languish in the Joy, Which comes from Giving

My experience has shown me that the incredible joy, which comes from giving freely of yourself, is far better than the discomfort and distress, which comes from focusing exclusively on yourself, always selfishly looking around your world, for “what’s in it for me”. This shift puts you in a far more positive place and allows you to see a very different world. One filled with wonder and opportunity. When you think less about yourself and what you lack, you are far happier and a new world of opportunity and possibility opens up to you. This world will remain hidden from people, living in overwhelm and distress.

Stop Blaming and Shaming and Start Caring and Sharing

Exploring your world, looking for ways to be of service to others, will transform your life. You will find it really difficult to continue blaming, every challenge and setback on the state of the economy, interest rates or the high price of fuel, etc. You will instead, live in a bubble of kindness, where there is no blame or shame, only space for caring and sharing. As you shift your headspace towards compassion, all blame and shame disappears and is replaced with love and kindness.

My experience has shown me that, when I foster and nurture kindness towards others, everything in my world changes for the better. As my mind is focused on compassion, exactly that is what I receive from others in return. I am also focused on harmony and peace and so I get to enjoy just that too. Living in a modality of caring and sharing does not only allow you to live in a far friendlier world, but also allows you to feel a whole lot better too. The wholesomeness and harmony, which flows to you and through you is incredible. The benefits extend to better health, wealth and happiness.

Align yourself with Compassion, Sharing and Caring

Remember that you attract success by the person you become and that you also live in a world, which is a reflection of who you are. So if you want any level of success in your life and you want to live in a wonderful world with meaning, joy and fulfilment, you can never get what you want, you can only what you are.

    So very true, Andrew! It all begins with caring and giving. I live by this philosophy and I am successful and happy. I’m not wealthy financially, but I have what I need, get most of what I want, and am satisfied with where I am in life. It’ really quite simple. Spend less time thinking of ourselves and more time on caring for others.
