I’ve found that I really have Fortune on my side.
I have a house, a job, great friends, and a wonderful church.
Why do I have so much? I think part of it is that I don’t see fortune as money I can get for myself. I see fortune as time, people and resources that I can use to help others.
I think that having savings is a good idea. but should it be at the expense of our beliefs?
If you have something you truly believe in, try giving to it.
Reasons I often hear and used to use myself…
I can’t spare the money (and by the way have you seen my new DVD?)
I haven’t got the time (oh yeah, did you see that tv show? I never miss it!)
I can’t find the right charity/church/organisation (but I’m not really looking anyway)
I found that once I dedicated my time, effort and yes, even my money into a cause, that I have been more fortunate than I could have imagined when I used those same reasons not to give.
I have a great spirit from doing what I know is right, I have more energy from using my time effectively, and I have more money left over than before.
I’ve found that in helping others to be more fortunate, I’ve been blessed with fortune myself.
What can you do to be more fortunate?
