The Power of Giving: How Giving Back Enriches Us…

While at IZEAFest earlier this month, I had the great fortune to meet Azim Jamal, who along with Harvey McKinnon, authored the book “The Power of Giving: How Giving Back Enriches Us All“.
The video above is a discussion of what I do to give back, how it has enhanced my life and why I'm instilling the same values in my children. After our chat, Azim provided me with a signed copy of his book which I devoured last week and will now share my thoughts on.
The Power of Giving is a thought-provoking book filled with encouraging stories and ideas that consider the strange phenomenon of the more you give without intentionally expecting return, the more your own life will be enriched.
One of the personal philosophies I live by is to be a better “mensch” every day, so what I particularly liked about the book is that it explores different ways that people can give back without it costing money or a lot of time. Additionally, it delves into the practical benefits that one can gain by helping to cultivate someone else's life.
This is the kind of book that after you read it, you'll want to buy a few more to share with others — especially folks who might be caught up in the daily grind that life sometimes doles out. It is a fast-read that will leave you feeling inspired and ready to make the world a better place.

I couldn't agree more.
I would go into my own unique experience but kudos is another thing we're not looking for.
It just feels good to give and not expect anything in return.
I my case it's giving, or attempting to give, people who are close to me, opportunities that they would otherwise not have. These people live in a part of the world where opportunity is scarce.
Wouldn't it be nice to live in a world where we define ourselves, not by what (stuff) we have, but by what we can do for others.
Is there a subtle change happening?
Hello Missy Ward:I just listened to your comments on giving. My mom once told me,that
if I really wanted to get out of self-pity,to help someone who is also having problems…
– problems worse than my own…….
