On the Joy of Giving

Albert Pine (aka Paine) writes: ‘What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal.” One of the grandest gifts that great leaders give to those whom they serve is the selfless giving of themselves. It is found in their belief in a person – their potential, possibilities and passion. It is felt in the inspiration they bring in their words, excitement and enthusiasm that lights a spark in people’s hearts and minds. It is brought to life in their energy, grit and ceaselessness in their pursuit and fulfilling of their life’s purpose and meaning. It is actualized in their words, actions, behaviors and attitudes.

Oprah Winfrey reminds us: “We’re all here to figure out how to best give ourselves away.” John Maxwell adds richness to her thought saying: “We are grateful for when we receive, we are fulfilled when we give.” May you be fulfilled always in your life’s giving to others… for what you give remains and is immortal.

Have a beautiful day and a magnificent week!!!
