One of the things that I have learned in life is that giving is a good thing.
It could be giving money or time to a good cause.
It could be giving advice or counsel to someone looking to me for advice.
It could be helping an entrepreneur out with some ideas or contacts.
There are many ways to give.
There does not always need to be a quid pro quo.
I give that help with no expectation of a return.
Some people always expect something in return, and while that is for them to decide.
I would suggest that life has a way of paying us back for our good deeds.
I would also say that just the act of giving helps me.
If you are at all "down" then one surefire way to feel better is to help others.
Take a leap of faith and help people whenever you can, and do it unconditionally.
It feels good … and your life will be enriched just by doing it.
Anything else is just gravy!

I write these articles with the intent of sharing MY experience and knowledge gained during MY life journey. From the 16 year old joining the Royal Navy, through many incarnations, to the grey haired guy who built a business. If you find a nugget here, then I am happy. If the message offends you then I apologise, that was never my intent. I know and recognize there are many people and groups who have a far bigger challenge than I have had and I only wish you well.
