It’s taken me a lifetime to gain the wealth of knowledge that I have today. One of the most important things that I have learned is how to invest all the intellectual treasures I have accumulated. I found that it is most rewarding and fulfilling when I share it with those around me. I have been blessed to see my pebble of knowledge spread and grow.
One of the greatest things we can do is uplift those around us. Success is synonymous with making a difference in the world that you live in. This starts with your circle of influence.
Ask yourself a simple question. What have I done for anyone lately? If you drew a blank from that question there are simple things you can do to break free of the issues that are blocking your capacity to help. You’ve taken the first step in that you recognized you’ve been holding out. You might of been hoarding your information in fear of criticism, fear of competition, or your own selfishness. You might of been a little hesitant sharing your knowledge simply because it’s a Wednesday. It may be for a reason you cannot even put your finger on. Whatever the reason, make up your mind to spread the news. Make a ripple by sharing your knowledge.
You can defeat these blockages. If sharing with others has you frightened by what you think they are going to say or think of you, just recognize that people are no different than you and me. They put their pants on one leg at a time just like everyone else. Why should you be afraid? Strong work ethic never let you down, so competition is only a tool that makes you stronger and helps elevate your game. You can make plans to volunteer in your community. It is a perfect opportunity to conquer any residue of selfishness and greatly benefits your neighborhood.
Gain perspective. Help others around you gain a broader perspective and hopefully, you will pick some up yourself, whether inadvertently or purposely. Share your experiences, knowledge and wisdom with anyone you can while soaking in what others share with you. By sharing with others, you will be surprised at the return you will get on this investment.
All it takes is a pebble to cause a ripple and impact those within your circle. Go ahead, give your knowledge away! Share it with others, an even bigger prize awaits those that do.
Look into your treasure chest.
Contribute to make your ripple.
