Let's start with MERRY CHRISTMAS!
“Those who bring sunshine into the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.” – James Matthew Barrie, Author of Peter Pan
(Keeping today short as it is a major holiday and celebration in our home)
The concept of contribution popped into my head this morning. It’s one of the “8 Orders of Success”, however I don’t feel that enough time is spent discussing it.
The word “Contribution” brings many pictures into the mind. Many view it as donations to their church, charities etc. Some donate their time to a youth as a Big Brother or Big Sister. A few people I know got to visit elderly people that are in “retirement” facilities (read old folks homes). A fellow entrepreneur friend of mine goes to a soup kitchen in San Francisco once a week to donate his time.
Those are all part of the process of contribution and I applaud anyone that participates in the aforementioned activities.
But it’s all that and more.
It is the value that YOU bring to the table.
What kind of value are you bringing to the table?
When you’re talking to your children, how are you impacting them?
When you’re game planning with your spouse or significant other, how are you benefiting them?
What are you doing to make yourself better?
Your contribution of becoming all that you are designed to be can change lives. Remember, the more value you bring to the table, the more spectacular the feast....it's one of the best gifts you can ever give someone.
Until next time, put everything you have into everything you do.
The best is yet to come!
