I have a client who says, “You serve others to make it and you give to keep it.” I like that.
In our pursuit of the security, peace, and comfort that money can provide us, it’s important to keep that other view in focus. We were not put on this earth to merely look out for number one, but to serve others. In fact, serving others well must be at the very core of our motivation in order to be successful in business and in life.
Sometimes I think it’s good to be reminded of that. Your motivation to write, to produce, to dream, to accomplish, to achieve, when rooted in the value of service to others, will bring you that peace that you seek.
I love the fact that, in our company, we get to help people achieve their dreams by our service to them. It makes coming to work every day a blast!
Even as you experience success, the focus doesn’t change…it’s still an other view in the sense that any profit or financial security we have simply gives us more means to be generous and have additional ways to be a blessing to others.
I know that if you are waiting to be financially secure to start being charitable you probably won’t ever get started. The time to give, to serve, to be charitable is now. Sow a seed. Giving comes from the heart and right now you have something to give. To quote from a book by Pat Williams and Jay Strack titled The Success Secrets of Shamgar, “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.” Don’t wait till you’ve got all the money you need to start giving it away.
Develop an other view that pays attention to the needs of others and seeks to benefit them in whatever ways possible. Jesus said it best: “Give and it shall be given unto you, pressed down, shaken together, and running over.”
