I turned another corner this week…

I absolutely love Haanel’s Part Twenty-Three….”the law of success is service; that we get what we give, and for this reason we should consider it a great privilege to be able to give.”

Mr. Wattles also seconds this sentiment with describing the path to getting rich is to first be of service…..”He must give to every man a use value in excess of the cash value he receives, so that each transaction makes for more life.”

Same with Earl Nightengale…..”To be a success you must first be of service”. ….

Ok, I get it!

But how do I give and serve when I feel (correction, have felt) exhausted and used up from over serving for so many years….

I have taken a selfish hiatus these past three to four years, letting myself feel burned out from what I considered “over giving” …..
Pouring into motherhood for over 20 years
Pouring into my teams in MLM and then getting burned
Failed marriage….etc….etc…

I was jaded….letting myself feel sorry for myself when dwelling on past childhood traumas, noting letting people get too close and know the “real” me (heck, I didn’t even know the real me!). I was feeling like an empty cup with nothing left to give, and I wanted to just rest, and be.

As I developed my DMP, I was leery about all the energy it was going to take…do I really want to do this? It will take so much of my time with not knowing how it will turn out, what will be the return, will it really make a difference? Is this really my true DMP in the first place? (Excuses to not answering the call)

I am feeling the shift now…as I focus on the journey, the race, and not the destiny. As I allow my true self to actualize, as I share my story rather than hide it in shame, I am able to go about my days and tasks with a “happy knack” and my heart is opening once again. Focusing now on

How can I give to others?
Who out there needs my help?
How can I serve today? I don’t have to worry about the end result, I just have to do my part to keep in the flow and giving and receiving.

I am controlling my emotions,
I am accepting,
I am taking responsibility,
I am demonstrating defenselessness,
I am “forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead. I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me..”
