Investment (Not Expenditure) is the Basis of Accomplishments in Life

As long as the world continues to go about its business—the way it has been since creation—nobody will be able to acquire anything without making an investment in one way or another. Making a difference in life involves the expenditure of time, energy and resources. Generally, Mother Theresa of Calcutta, India, made a difference in the whole  world: specifically, she made a difference by helping poor and underprivileged people who lived on the streets of one of the world’s largest and poorest cities: Calcutta. She often brought her served meals in the aircraft to feed the poor. After receiving the Noble Peace Prize, she used all the money she got to feed and care for the poor. When the Pope visited India in 1963, the Indian government bought a limousine to conduct the Pope throughout his stay. At his departure, the Pope gave the limousine to Mother Theresa who quickly sold it to feed and care for the poor; what a love, and what a life to live! No wonder, even though she is dead, her impact, relevance, and influence lives on.

Impact is made when you live to give, and not just to gain. Those who invest what others retain, achieve what others cannot. Those who live their lives contributing and distributing, rather than accumulating, make the difference on the long run: investment, not expenditure, is the basis of accomplishments in life. Make a difference through giving! A key to making a difference or living a life of impact on earth, is by living and giving beyond your needs and time.

The biblical Joseph was busy in an ancient Egyptian prison meeting other people’s needs and making them fulfilled. At the end of the day, his own needs were not only met, but he also became a man of influence, power and authority in a foreign land (Egypt). Zig ziglar said: “You will always have everything in life when you help people get what they want”. In actual sense, it is more blessed to give than to receive. Increase someone’s joy by meeting their practical needs. Do something remarkable for someone today and always.

Give the world quality service, and you will receive quality greatness

No matter who you are or what you do, if you give your best to the world, the greatest will come back to you, and you will be on the path to greatness…it doesn’t matter your level in life; even if you are a labourer, give the best service you can, and that could just be the beginning of your journey to greatness. Jesus Christ said: “Whoever would be great among you must be your servant”. (Featured image credit: Pixabay.com.)

No matter who you are or what you do, if you give your best to the world, the greatest will come back to you, and you will be on the path to greatness.

It is no more a hidden fact that on the long run, the universe opens its arms and gives the best and highest profits to those who serve the best—those who give their best service.

Just take a look around you and observe: you will easily notice that good businesses are either at the top of the ladder of success, or on the road to it.

(On the other hand, it has to be noted that, on the long run, the universe will suck life out of evil businesses, even though they might appear to be successful at any moment in time.)

One great quality successful businesses have is that they are not careless about the way they offer their services: they always strive to provide service that is arguably greater in value than what they are paid for, and what the greater number of people offer.

If a comparison is made between the services that successful businesses offer, and the money they make from their services, one could come to the conclusion that their services are more valuble than the money they make from them.

The input of additional or extra effort or knowledge than usual makes certain people or businesses unique and stand out from the great crowd of businesses that exist.

So it pays to give a little more value than what is usually given by most people. Any extra quality or quantity of effort you add to any service can make a difference for you, and attract a lot of trust, customers and money, and make your business recognized as an outstanding one.

On the long run, the law of attraction works hand in hand with the quality of services and thoughts offered

The universe will unfold its gifts to us in proportion to the quality of services we offer.

If we give our best, we will receive much more than we offer—remember: “Cast thy bread upon the waters and it will return to you a hundred-fold”.

The same applies to our thoughts too: most of us are in a certain condition or situation because of the quality of our thoughts.

We desire positive things but allow our minds to be occupied by negative thoughts: we hope for something better, but our hopes are surrounded and drowned by fears that we might never have any chance to make it.

The only way we can change the effects of what we receive from the universe is by first changing the causes of the effects—and we are the ones who have to start this.

It will be difficult to receive good things from GOD’s everlasting generosity if we are expecting evil: it will be difficult to attract abundance when our thoughts are concentrating on poverty and lack.

Remember that the universe releases or keeps its abundance in proportion to an individual’s quality of thinking.

GOD’s generosity is always looking for an outlet to which it will constantly supply its abundance; it is like a boundless reservoir of water, to which, if anyone attaches a channel, will allow water flow from it in ever-increasing volume.

If you are wise enough to attach a channel to the generosity of the universe, its gifts will flow in ever-increasing volume and continue to enrich you in the process.

By opening a channel from the abundance of GOD, and using your talent to help people and solve their problems, you will attract a lot of profit and greatness to yourself.

If you wish to receive greatness, you have to use your talent to offer servicesespecially quality services

You have to use your talent if you wish to make profit from it and attract abundance; in addition, you have to give quality service if you want to become truly great in a good way.

It doesn’t matter whether the services you offer are small; what matters is the quality. Use it and it will grow and make you great—use your GOD-given talents to make a better and greater impact on the world.

A brief look at the biblical parable of the talents

Jesus told the parable of three men who were given different quantities of talents.

Two of the men who made profitable use of their talents were rewarded, and given authority over many things; but the man who had the least talent and hid it, and was rewarded with nothing.

Worst still, his talent was taken away from him, and given to the man who had the greatest talent and used it profitably.

If you are good at selling commodities, you have to use your talent to deliver quality goods and services that can make people satisfied and happy.

If you are the owner of website, you must give visitors quality content and services as much as you possibly can: make them feel fulfilled and happy by giving more than the usual amount that can be found on other websites.

And if you want more from GOD’s generosity, you must start using what you have to help people around you. This is one of the major things that can make you become truly great.

Conclusion

If you wish to become great, you must serve. There is a very good reason why Jesus Christ said: “Whoever would be great among you must be your servant”—whosoever wishes to become the greatest among you, shall be servant of all.

In other words, if you wish to become great, you must serve: if you want to make money, instead of trying to get it in raw form by any means possible, look for ways to be of service to other people.

In the process of serving other people, you will inevitably attract money and the best gifts of life to yourself. We receive according to how and what we give—however, we must first give.

It doesn’t matter where you start in life; even if you are a laborer, you can still give quality service  to your boss and make him or her happy.

Try your best to give more quality than what you are paid for, and you could just be on the beginning of your journey to success and greatness.

Make an effort every day to improve yourself by adding extra skills to the one you possess and use for work: find a way to do something better or more efficiently, and it won’t take long time before you will find a way out of the common labor class.

No matter the type of job you do, always find a more joyful, easier and better way to do it, and probably with lesser effort or fewer people, and you will be on your way to the top of the ladder.

Always think about how you can give greater value than what you get. Always think about how you can serve better; how you can make more money for your employers, or save more for your customers.

If you can keep this thought in mind and practice giving quality service and maintaining positivity, then you will become great!
