The meaning and purpose of life

This weeks sparkenation.

I was blessed to learn the joy of giving without attachment to getting back from my grandparents and my parents. When I discovered my gifts/talents and began to enhance them in a spirit of giving, gratitude, and generosity towards others, my life changed. And the great paradox, I continue to receive a 1000 fold on what I freely give.

You can see why I treasure this testimonial from my colleague and self-leadership expert Andrew Bryant:

“Ian is an expert in the development of people and organisations, moreover he is generous to a fault, giving exceptional value whether he is being paid or not.”

What are your gifts/talents?

How are you enhancing them?

How much are you giving of yourself to others without attachment to getting back?

Be the difference you want to see in the world.
