Give – Get Mental Compass

A compass tells you the direction you are heading.  Here’s a mental compass that can perhaps keep you living your life on a course to satisfaction and purpose.

When you find yourself directed by wanting to get something for yourself, then you are living in the direction of success.

When you find yourself directed by wanting to give something to someone else, then you are living in the direction of service and satisfaction.

Your give-get compass can help you decide if you are on course, on purpose and if you are appropriately using your strengths in service to yourself or in service to others. 

The funny thing is by staying focused on asking, “How may I serve ?” and “How much can I give?” you can receive so much more than by worrying about “How much can I get?” 

What are you seeking with this once in a lifetime opportunity called living your life? 

Try heading in the direction of satisfaction through giving yourself to others and you’ll be amazed at what you will receive! 

You will definitely be living your life, Fired Up!
