Life and Giving Back

Giving back is an area too many of us do not excel in. It is the understanding that experience teaches us to pay life back along the way with small acts of kindness. It is a reciprocal arrangement with the world, give a little and get a little. It keeps the blur of the world in focus. Giving back keeps your mind in tune with others, our perception of ourselves and how others view us.

When we treat others the way we wish to be treated, we acknowledge that giving back is important to the basic fabric that makes up our lives. We live to be recognized, but when we give back, sometimes we are the only ones that can acknowledge the act. It humbles us before others. Acts of kindness can be measured in many ways; success, happiness, time, money just to name a few.

Business, like life, is a reciprocal arrangement. You have to give something back in order to makes things move ahead. A constant attitude of "taking" leaves emptiness with all parties, whereas "giving" translates into concern and effort for all involved. It provides a mutual success that is reciprocal. Be vigilant watching for ways to give back in those chosen areas of your life. The rewards will be many because inevitably, you get back what you put in.
