After your life is complete, what is the legacy you want to leave behind? Do you want a to leave a legacy that represents your TRUE self? If you want to leave a legacy that is of true value and that continues to be shared, then the answer is to tithe with others. I am not talking about giving ten percent more than what you are giving right now. I am referring to sharing the ten percent of YOURSELF that makes YOU special. When we share our inner ten percent with others, we pass that piece of ourselves on and can help others move past a difficult time in their life.
Having a reflective mind and a willing spirit is the only requirement for you to tithe. Ask yourself: How can I help? What part of "me" can be help this person? Your tithe could come in the form of a personal story or an experience. It matters because it is a part of you. Sometimes the smallest things have the largest impact. Always remember that each of us is special! Each of us has something to tithe.
We live in a busy world! Iphones, Computers, and the bombardment of people by information can leave most people so stressed that they feel like they are diagonally parked in a parallel universe! To tithe, we need to take the time to connect on a personal level. We need to get away from the distractions and meet others with an open heart. Only seven percent of the words we use are important. The other ninety three percent of a conversation comes from our facial expressions, body language and how active we are in our ability to listen. Tithing can be as simple as turning off your Iphone, lending an ear, and just "being there."
Is tithing risky? The answer is YES. The hardest part of tithing is making that initial investment. No great thing was ever accomplished without the element of risk. In life, there are people that do and people that wish they had done. Wouldn't you rather step out and take the risk of rejection and be of benefit to another person, than to have "wished" you had done something after the fact? The answer is clear. We should step up and invest ourselves. Take the risk!
Tithing is a personal investment of your best ten percent in others that goes beyond the boundaries of mentorship and coaching. It's not a lot, it's only ten percent. That small investment will give returns that are much greater than we could ever imagine. Don't hesitate! Make your investment in others through tithing. Thank the people who have shared their tithes with you!
Keep Charging and start tithing.. Leave behind your legacy!
