The Meaning of Real Loss

I did a talk at a community event on The Power of Giving. When someone commented on the speech I asked him my favorite question: “What is your one take home idea from the speech?”. He said, “[Ask not] what will you lose by giving but rather what will you lose by not giving!” Wow! What a paradigm shift.

Instead of thinking of the time you will lose by doing voluntary work or money you will lose by giving donations, think of the leadership and interpersonal skills you will lose to learn by not volunteering your time. Think of the abundance and attraction you will lose by not sowing the seeds of giving money instead of the other way around.

Next time you are called to give – be it time, money, skills, knowledge, wisdom, good wishes – think of the lose you will have by not giving!!
