We Feed Our Bodies–Are You Feeding Your Mind?

Each week, I receive a newsletter from the foundation of one of my all time favorite mentors, Jim Rohn.  At the bottom of the publication there’s always a small section dedicated to taking “vitamins for your mind.” I love that idea because we always think in terms of taking vitamins for our bodies, yet the health of our minds (and spirits) is as equally important and should be as vigilantly maintained as our bodies. I also love the brevity of his wisdom and so I thought I’d share one of his sections with you. The installation below is focused on giving, sharing and generosity.

It’s best to start the discipline of generosity when the amounts are small. It’s easy to give ten cents out of a dollar; it’s a little harder to give a hundred thousand out of a million.

  • Giving is better than receiving because giving starts the receiving process.
  • Nothing teaches character better than generosity.
  • Here’s what is exciting about sharing ideas with others: If you share a new idea with ten people, they get to hear it once and you get to hear it ten times.
  • Sharing makes you bigger than you are. The more you pour out, the more life will be able to pour in.
  • Somebody says, “Well, I can’t be concerned about other people. About the best I can do is to take care of myself.” Well, then you will always be poor.
  • What you give becomes an investment that will return to you multiplied at some point in the future.
  • When somebody shares, everybody wins.
  • The amount you give isn’t important. What matters is what that amount represents in terms of your life.
  • Only by giving are you able to receive more than you already have.

Now, don’t forget to take your other vitamins:)
