The effect of giving whole heartily.

I always believe happiness will be gathered if we make others happy first. Seeing others succeed in life because of ourselves, will create contentment and satisfaction in our heart. Many who asked me where I get my motivation and energy everyday to be cheerful and happy. I told them it is easy. As long as you are willing to give outwardly, the world in return will give you the happiness and energy of life back naturally.

This was how I started my day to cheer a friend who is suffering from cancer and is on treatment currently. I sent Amrit a message while on the early run in my car, "My dear, how are you lately? Please be strong and have a strong mindset. I am sure you will make it. Please read my blog under this title, 'An ounce of courage to remove ton of distress'. It will help to build your strength." She replied, "Thanks uncle. By the way, I spend one hour reading your blog site. Very motivating. Thank you."

I received another message from a new friend whom I still have not met yet. The telemarketing executive from Citibank whom I had motivated about two weeks ago. I pushed him an extra mile to learn something more for himself. His message, "Blessed day, Robert I sell more effectively and more confident after I've spoken with you. Thank you Sir - Daniel Citibank."

I had a morning talk with our branch office. Sharing the title, 'Agent Philosophy' to some young agents I had not met before. Later in the afternoon, one of them sent me this message, "Hi Robert. Sim here. Thanks for your today great sharing with us. Many of your points are part of my life which is happening now. Hopefully I can achieve like you one day."

Thank you Amrit, Daniel and Sim. Your messages gave me strength. Although they were just text message in words, they created values and hopes for me. These are the little thought and appreciation which could motivate a person, including myself. If I had not started to think for them first, these positive force would not have gathered. Their sweet words really made my day and I am sure there will be more to come tomorrow. Don't wait for something to happen, rather make something interesting happen and you would be amazed how powerful they are.

I received this lovely phrase from Zarina who cares, "Sweet words are easy to say; sweet things are easy to buy; but sweet people are difficult to find."

Hi Young Man!
No virtues can be greater than love without distinction.
Many receive advice and the wise profit by it.
And the more you give to others, the more you will have.

Hi Young kat...

I certainly agreed with your comments. The world will be a better place to live, if only man isn't that selfish in nature. Thanks again.
