Have you ever had those times when you are feeling rather stuck in your life? It just seems you are doing all you can, but you aren’t happy?
We are coming through a recession, people were worried about their jobs, have been very careful about spending, not sure what the future holds. Some have lost jobs, and had to regroup, re-evaluate.
Others are saying “I should be happy. I have the perfect job, income, family, etc. But I’m miserable!” These people are feeling empty and with no purpose in life. People are looking to address deeper issues of the soul, and are looking for a sense of purpose.
Give first, then you will receive. If you want to shift your life, shift your thinking from what is wrong in my life and begin thinking “how can I help others?”, which in turn will bring purpose and satisfaction to your life. Slow down, take a look at your life, and find the “Energy Leaks” – those places where you are spending meaningless time & effort, and replace it with RECIPROCITY.
Reciprocity is giving and sharing of your time and efforts with others, and you will receive it back 10 fold (not necessarily from the person you gave to).
In his book “Inspiration”, Dr Wayne Dyer tells us, “A giver of act of kindness increased their ceratonine levels AS WELL AS the recipient!! That is pretty incredible – but there is more…the OBSERVER of the act of kindness also has increased levels of ceratonine”
One simple act of kindness and service that’s in alignment with our Source will do more to inspire others than lectures ever could.
People are re-evaluating the meaning of SUCCESS – its not the big car, home, vacations, things. They have those things, and yet are still not happy.
SUCCESS is about reaching your goal without FEAR, FAILURE or FRUSTRATION. And many successful business people are finding the key to their success is doing what they are passionate about, plus giving back, social responsibility, or Reciprocity. This is what gives us a deeply passionate & purposeful life.
