“I am a Philanthropist”

BIBLEBOY-WPThere’s a growing trend for giving back. People across all age groups are volunteering like never before. But giving back doesn’t mean that you don’t get anything in return. It can mean helping others reach new heights in their lives and reaching a new level in your own life.

Have you explored the benefits of being or becoming a Philanthropist? For starters a philanthropist is someone who engages in philanthropy; that is, someone who donates his or her time, money, and reputation to charitable causes.  Giving to your favorite charity feels good, there’s no denying that. But your charitable initiatives can have a greater impact on your community more than you may think.  Gone are the days when donations are all about the tax break.

Today everyday people are developing values-driven giving opportunities to help support their philanthropic efforts grow even deeper roots in the things they care about the most.  While charitable donations may have an immeasurable impact on our communities, actions speak volumes as well. Giving your time and labor to local causes can also result in substantial charter building and bonding time with the people you serve which has a stronger, happier, and more active community.

if you think you need to have money to be a philanthropist, you are wrong!  All of us can improve the conditions in our communities in some way by engaging and give more of ourselves strategically, to make targeted efforts to contribute more of our time.   As Mother Teresa reminds all of us “It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”

This year I am encouraging all of my colleges to become philanthropists for the communities they serve.  If any of you is having trouble selecting a humanity cause, or charity, I will share one of my favorite charity “St. Jude “www.stjude.org” has a very special place in my heart.  Find somewhere to volunteer today and give!

HUMILITY

HUMILITY-TCG-600X600Part of being humble is to understand you will make mistakes. To understand this is to know everyone else makes mistakes, and you will have a better chance to avoid many life hard lessons.

Learning to be humble is a spiritual tradition, and humility helps you to develop and enjoy a richer relationship with others, as well as creating opportunities that earn you respect.  Make every effort to stay humble and serve others when the opportunity is presented to make a difference in someone life.

“You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world’s problems at once but don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.”  Michelle Obama  #WORKHARDSTAYHUMBLE  #MICHELLEOBAMA

Live Fearless

ManSeaPaddel-PM-SMHave you been so frighten of failure that you begin to second-guess your decisions about life? Are you apprehensive of people, so you don’t share your feeling? Are you comfortable with your success and fearful of taking a chance on your next big dream? Then you are not alone. I have discovered that the vast majority of people, no matter how confident they appear have felt paralyzed by their own fears.

For some, the intimidating voices are the conscious that prevent us from reaching our full potential. These inner voices are always at the ready to whisper skeptical objections and plant doubts that can prevent you forever achieving your greatest potential.

Instead, start now to embrace fearless living to help you triumph over the fears that prevents you from living a fulfilling life. Fearless living entails living by faith and by grace that directs your life and overcoming your fear. Life is too short to place your hopes and dream on hold, or wait for better opportunities because tomorrow is not promised, move beyond your fears.

There is no “right” time to begin living fearlessly. Wherever you are in life, now is the perfect time to transform your life.
