One of the main requirements of success is that you give something back. Being successful doesn’t mean that it’s a personal achievement because no one whoever became successful did so on their own. Which is why it makes complete sense to turn around, reach out and bring someone up with you.
To whom much is given, so much more is required. Success certainly comes with a price. We have all been uniquely blessed with specific gifts and talents. There are some who have yet to recognize their gifts as truly gifts. Your gift is the “thing” that you are able to do almost better than everyone else. Once you’ve recognized your gift, it is imperative that you begin focusing on how to share this gift to the world. Sharing our gifts with the world, if executed correctly, is exactly what will yield us financial freedom. In essence, when you do what you love and love what you do, the money will come in abundance.
Many of us are past the stage of recognizing our gifts. For the most part, most people know exactly what their specialized talents are yet a majority of those people will not do anything about it. For those of us who do, we must not only find satisfaction in earning but equal, if not greater, satisfaction in giving. We are blessed in order to be a blessing to someone else. What good is a man’s treasure if he cannot share it with the world? I’ll tell you, it’s worthless.
To whom much is given, so much more is required. You have used your gifts to receive your blessings but the transaction is only half-way complete; the final piece are the blessings you give to others. Most people don’t realize that their blessings come from blessings others; which explains why less and less people give. Understand that we are all connected. And since we are all connected, it is imperative that we understand that we all have a humanitarian obligation to support one another. You are absolutely your brother’s keeper.
If God has blessed you with increase or abundance, the expectation is that you will return the favor by being a blessing to someone else. This is a requirement of success. In order to receive, you must give.
