Its not about what I can get but what I can give.

Yesterday, I woke up remembering that everything that I want to do in my life, with my career, with my dreams is not really about me.  It is about everyone else.  I tweeted, ” Its not about what I can get but what I can give.”  This is the true motive for everything that I want to do.  This is the reason that I want to have my story published, this is the reason that I want to have a TV show, this is the reason that I created all of my services, this is the reason that I created my joyology.

It is not about me!  Sometimes, I forget about that and I get stuck in the how can I make money zone.  How can I push these services to make income?  I really want to buy new clothes!  I want to eat at that yummy restaurant whenever I want without thinking about the debt it is causing me!  I want to fly to visit my family for the holidays and not think about the financial cost of it!  Those thoughts are all normal.  I do not feel guilty or wrong for having those thoughts, but really they don’t serve me or my mission.

Everything that I do, everything that I share whether it be a recipe, one of my favorite companies, a quote that inspires me, or a look into my head, is all because no matter how different we are, we are all the same, and I want you to succeed in life, just as much as I want to succeed in life.  What does that mean, succeed in life?  Does that mean win a medal?  Be rich and famous? It may be, but for me it means that I live it, that I love it.  That I don’t let it pass me by.  That I don’t let fears stop me.  That I don’t get stuck in “what will people think?”  “what will I look like?”  “what if I am wrong?”  and on and on.

So, my reminder as to whether I am doing my “job” right is to remember, Its not about what I can get but what I can give, and then everything makes sense again!
