Are you uncertain about where you are in your life, unclear about a particular situation or feeling unsure about yourself?
We've all been there...
At a point of exasperation and unhappiness with how things were going I began to read it from when I first began. I needed to see what I was doing wrong or things that I might have been overlooking. How I got to this place? What I found was a consistent pattern of what had been working for me all along.
Through all of my failures, financial mistakes and failed deals staying active to others in some form gave me peace & patience to persevere and keep the proper perspective. Making myself available to help others humbled me, exposed shortcomings in my character and continuously pressed me to strive to be a better person and businessman. I was always successful in giving of myself. I always felt deep fulfillment in service to others. It sharpened my skills and strengthened my determination to continue.
I WAS GROWING!
I discovered that this principle applies to any pursuit we undertake in our lives. Clarity comes when we express SELF LOVE through service to others. First, comes patience, patience brings clarity, clarity produces peace and peace leads us to a deeper understanding of whatever we are facing.
SELF LOVE through service to others is an ever giving gift that helps us identify our true selves and true motives thus revealing answers to problems we face personally and professionally. In service to others we develop skills related to our individual purpose and become more aligned with who we are meant to be.
We are all connected and in that connection lies the answer. Love in all of it's forms is always the answer. In that way failures, no's and delays are not problems, but paths to developing who we truly want to be.
HERE ARE TWO AWESOME WAYS TO CELEBRATE YOU!
- GET INVOLVED! Volunteer in your community. Pick a cause host a volunteer event for your community. Celebrate your life with loved ones while you support a cause that you are passionate about.
- Purchase a shirt. Called The Birthday Shirt, because it puts all the focus on you; our hoodies and t-shirts come with a washable marker and a space where you can write your name, so everyone knows to show you love. At no additional cost to you a portion of your purchase goes to programs working to end violence and improve the communities we live in.
FOR YOU we will also have the printing, fulfillment & shipping done by social enterprises like Doing Good Works that are serving to better their communities. Doing Good Works employs people transitioning from the foster care system. They provide them with a job and an opportunity to develop career skills towards self sufficiency.
Your purchase directly benefits the lives of the employees, their families and the communities that they represent.
We are also volunteering in my hometown of St.Louis, Missouri which consistently ranks top 3 for Murders. We are currently volunteering with a violence prevention program in the city of St.Louis.
Your purchase not only helps to support social enterprises that serve their communities, but also helps to fund these programs that are working to end violence in communities around the world.
