I teach my Tupperware team a simple rule: Help enough people get what THEY want and you will get what YOU want. We share how to set goals, break them down and then create a plan of action to make that goal happen.
Add training, how to use the tools we are given to work with and it all adds up to people creating a bunch of success stories.
It’s a few small steps on the path of a lifestyle of service to others.
Add in helping your local food pantry, donating your time, passing things to others via Freecycle and another 1,000 ways to give to others…it makes a significant ripple effect in our world for the positive.
Occasionally, all that goodness comes back to you.
Sunday, after church, we were going to the pancake breakfast, sponsored by the local Optimist Club. It’s pretty inexpensive: kids under 5 eat free, and only $5 for adults.
What is included? All you can eat pancakes, sausage links, apple sauce and beverages like juice, milk and coffee.
As we were walking in, a couple was walking out and asked if we had bought our tickets yet. We said we hadn’t, and they handed us two that they had extra…for free.
Yup. The three of us had a nice breakfast for nothing! I DID buy a bag of cookies from the bake sale for $1 – it was for the school’s marketing club.
I am not saying you should do things so you get free stuff in return, simply that the more positive energy you put out there, the more that finds it’s way back to you.
Karma baby – how are you going to share some today?
