On Living with Purpose: The Measure of Your Life


The measure of your life will not be in what you accumulate, but in what you give away.

~ Dr. Wayne Dyer

As you think about this quote today, I encourage you to not think in terms of giving away money; although that resource can be used for good.  Instead, I encourage you to think of giving in terms of your gifts and talents and, at a minimum, your time.  Giving is really a mindset – a choice.  Do you freely share your knowledge? Do you share your talents and gifts without expectation of compensation or anything in return?

The abundance theory teaches that the more you give the more seems to come back to you in return.  I have found this to be true.  Specifically I have found that the more I give of myself with the only thought to serve others, I have received more than adequate reward in terms of happiness and peace.

Choose to give of yourself today.  Lift another.  Inspire them to greatness.  You will find that you are inspired to be great in return.
