Merry Christmas – Gift Giving

First of all, I wish you and your very family a very Merry Christmas and all the blessings and joy for the upcoming year.

I have to admit that I have spent many hours lately at the local stores and onlineSanta Being Refueled looking and shopping for presents and that is all well and fine for everyone.  At the same time, the absolutely best presents won’t be found in any store or online website.

You already have the best gift for the people around and even others you don’t even know.  Your most precious gift is the knowledge and experience you have accumulated over the years.

Here’s what I suggest – For this Christmas season, give at least everyone who is in your inner circle a coupon or something that commits you to teaching them one thing that you know. It may be how to bake a certain type of cookie; it might be how to create a nice website’ perhaps how to repair something; you get the idea.

This gift will do more and leave more with people than anything you can buy or make.

Now I suggest you take this a step further.  Get out with others and share the same sort of information.  You can do this online through Facebook and LinkedIn groups. I am willing to bet there is a group where you have experiences that would be beneficial to others. Can’t find a group?  Go to Yahoo Answers and start answering questions.

On top of making other people better, it makes you better – in communication, in the skill you have, in just understanding what other people have going on in their lives.

This is what we did in Special Forces.  You can give all the material and supplies, but if you don’t teach them how to use it, it will go for nothing. It is all about helping people help themselves.  Isn’t that the best gift that can be given?

Let us know what you are going to do to help others in the comments.

Ask For Success

Have you ever noticed that successfully people asked to be successful? Funny isn’t it? This doesn’t mean that their success was an easy path. Instead it means that they were passionate enough about becoming successful, that they did whatever it took to reach it. The good thing is you can follow in their footsteps!

    Great idea Mike. Organize a discussion group which meets regularly to discuss different topics of interest. Start small and build out. We just had our second meeting.
