Get vs. Giving

Making a Living.

Here is a simple truth: The more money you make, the better your standards of living. More money equals more buying power. Not just more in terms of quantity but also in quality. For some, this means everything. It is a completely selfish endeavor, but it doesn’t necessarily mean it is bad. It is just a truth. Who wouldn’t prefer to live comfortably, travel freely, eat better, and wear well-made clothes? To do so while incurring the least amount of personal sacrifice is the desire of many.

A Life of Giving

Yes, making a living is nice. But shouldn’t we aim for something higher, something more noble and less selfish? Our goal should be to leave the world a little better than when we entered it. The only way we can do this is by giving back to the world. Life isn’t about how much we can get. It is about how much we can give.

We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

Winston Churchill

The getting is nice, but it is the giving that matters.
