What’s your 2013 contribution going to be?
We know our lives are interconnected and whether we consciously choose to, or not, we are leaving our legacy through all our actions and words.
When we enter into the New Year and we reassess and set new goals, most often these are with the intention of improving our lives. But how often do we set or include a goal for what we are going to give and contribute during the year to others and our world?
Maybe this is your contribution to your relationships with your close family – partner, parents, children, siblings, Or your friendships, Or your local community – neighbours, colleagues, team mates, Or the wider community – local or global.
As the beautiful Audrey Hepburn eloquently said:
“As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others”.
This year as you set your goals remember that the hand of the giver is never empty because the rewards are returned multiplied. And set yourself a personal goal (and make a commitment to yourself to fulfill it) and include a goal which will light up both your life and the life/lives of others.
A couple questions to help you
- What cause am I passionate about?
- What skills or assets do I have that I could contribute?
- What contribution do I want to make this year – financially or with my time – to charity or community?
- What is the positive impact I want to make this year to the lives of others and the planet?
You are so powerful and magnificent. Have a fantastic 2013 and I look forward to hearing and seeing your contribution this year 🙂
