Now what activities are you doing every day to get your closer to where you want to be??!
I actually believe in most of this. My guilty pleasure is I do social media and listen to television, usually crime shows news or homr improvement. I also love The Voice and singing shows and my husband loves car auction shows. I do most of these but would love to incorporate 95% instead of 75% or 80%. It’s not about monetary wealth, it’s about all the others I could help when I had some to share.
To me life isn’t about being the richest in dollars. It is about being the giving in spirit and if you can, sharing the wealth to help others. As long as I can remember I’ve always wanted to be a philanthropist. Give time, energy, and finanace to help others grow. It just seemed natiral and right.
My favorite Abraham Lincoln quote is “you can not help but to receive in giving to someone else”. It also talks about this throughout the bible and many other religions. I knew that concept before I could read somehow. It was right after love. Those are natural emotions in all species I believe. At least I see those actions.
