Giving Back to Your Community
By giving back to your community, you are not only helping your community grow stronger, but you are also helping yourself become stronger. Keep in mind that no matter where you live in the world, you are not alone. Therefore, in order to truly succeed in life, it is crucial that you work with those around you. By working with people around you, it means giving back what you have taken directly or indirectly. I know that a lot of people see the idea of giving back to the community in a different light. The most common idea is that it is a charitable gesture or simply doing a good deed. This is not completely correct.
The best way to explain this is by understanding what goes on when you take any type of action. No matter what you do in your life, you will indirectly or directly be using other people to help you achieve a particular task or goal. So while you might think it is only you that is doing all of this, there are actually many other forces that are working around you in order to help you reach that particular task or goal. Therefore, when you give back to your community, all you are really doing is showing your appreciation for what the community was able to directly or indirectly do for you. This even includes giving back to people who you have had no direct dealings with; because you will find that in some way there is some type of connection, even if that connection occurred with another person that just happened to cross your path in order to help your dreams become a reality.
When you look at it from this perspective, you will soon understand the real importance of giving back to your community. It is your way of showing how grateful you are. In fact, a great way to make better sense of this is by taking a look at the law of attraction. One of the important factors that comes with the law of attraction is to be grateful. In other words, you have to be grateful for everything you have or would like to have, as this in turn will help the forces within the universe to help you make that particular thing a reality. So when you are giving back to your community, you are indirectly showing that you are grateful, which in turn will instill upon you a more powerful sense of positive thinking, which is essential to reaching your goals and staying at the top.
