Be generous with people who are less fortunate because philanthropy feeds your heart and spirit and gives more purpose to your work
We’ve talked about having a mature understanding of wealth and prosperity, in fact that is principle number one. These two are really connected in a great way. When we start thinking about wealth and prosperity, building our assets, increasing our net worth—where is that taking us? What is the end game and what is the ultimate goal? Do we get to that point so we can buy more things? No. Having the ability to be generous is where it needs to lead us and recognizing wealth is also useful for what we can do for others.
We all need to get to the point where we get more joy and pleasure from being able to help somebody else who is less fortunate than ourselves, than we do when we buy ourselves a toy, a gadget or a gift. People who follow this discipline care about the impact they have on people’s lives and the legacy they will leave behind. That’s how they measure their own success
When it comes to giving back to our communities, we can do so in two ways: volunteering our time or our money. One is not better than the other. In fact, they are both equally important. Practicing philanthropy puts meaning and creates context that can really inspire you to work harder and want to do more, to create more, to build more and to be more successful. It gives purpose to your work and feeds your spirit at the same time.
