I personally think giving back is spiritual . I also believe that contribute to my personal success . Well im still learning . I learnt this philosophy as a kid from my parents I recalled several occasions when my mother pass along food for beggars, neighbours without asking .
In my line of work, i give more than i received . thats my personal philosophy . It does not also means that you should be allow to be push over .
Giving back is about heart full of compassion, but this is lost among the westerners . Its always about themselves which is a miserable way of living . If you are blessed with abundance of energy and wisdom like me , i believe we have moral obligations to pass it on to help other people .
Successes are to be shared not hoarded . I believe we are giving success and energy to help others . In fitness industry for examples our clients are coming from bad habits, low self esteem , poor decision making, lack of compassionate and gratitude , lack of self belief. And because im blessed in these area of life i can always help people to overcome this issues .
Giving back does not have to be money or material things . it could be spending time with a lonely person, buy a homeless person a good coffee , Giving people direction, contributing to church building fund . The principle is the same .
One of the best thing about success and giving back is to be able to apply whatever you are good are in the service of others .
Giving back feel good. Giving back to others is what will keep your life in perspective .
