The Power of Giving! muzzamilshaukat.com / Muzzamil Shaukat
“Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.” - Lao Tzu The reason most of us never get anything is we never give anything. We make our mission to just take, take, and take and take as much as possible. It’s like wanting a Hamburger without paying for it. We have heard the saying that “Karma is a bitch”, but Karma is not always a bitch. Karma can be our best friend and worst foe depending on what we put out into this world. According to Newton’s third law, for every action there is a opposite and equal reaction. That’s basically Newton describing ‘Karma’. Whatever we put out into this world, we get it back. For Negative, we get negative back and for positive- we get positive back. Back in 2006, Bill Gates’s decided to give away half of his net worth. Yet after one year, Bill Gates was once again
the richest man in the world. In 2015, Mark Zuckerberg gave all of his net worth away to a charity and the last time I checked ‘Forbes’, he was the third richest person in the world. Had Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg ripped people off in order to build their fortunes, they would have went broke a long time ago. For the past whole decade, Bill Gates has been the wealthiest man of our times. Now I am not saying that you have to give away a lot of money to become wealthy. Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg obviously worked their butts off and grinded day and night for decades to build their fortunes. Giving doesn’t necessarily mean giving away a lot of money. Giving means you give somebody something with knowing that the person can probably never pay you back for the favor or whatever you are doing for the person. Giving could be in a form of hooking somebody up with a job who really needed a job. Giving means helping someone learn something that they can’t learn on their own. Giving means doing somebody a favor without asking for something in return. Like I said before giving is like Karma, it could be a bitch or your best supporter. It’s up to you what you put out to this world. Many people disbelieve in giving. The reason being they want instant gratification. They want instant reward. People ask themselves that how long would it take to get a reward if they help someone in need. This is why they never get anything in life. “You may have heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday. There’s another day you might want to know about: Giving Tuesday. The idea is pretty straightforward. On the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, shoppers take a break from their gift-buying and donate what they can to charity.” - Bill Gates Giving means you don’t expect anything in return. You just trust the process. You keep doing whatever you got to do in order to become successful. As you are in the process, opportunities will come out of nowhere and all of a sudden. When you expect something in return for giving, you basically kill the whole process. You must not be greedy. Nobody becomes a millionaire or billionaire over night except if you win a lottery. But according to a study, an average lottery winner goes broke right after three years of winning the lottery. Many people take their wealth for granted and believe they are supposed to keep it for the rest of their lives. In theory, they are correct. It’s their hard earned money and they can do whatever they want with their money. But how do you answer to people who are born in rural parts of African countries such as Nigeria and Mali with HIV. How do you explain to a starving kid in India who has been feeding on human waste for years. You can’t tell them to survive and make it on their own. Although Entrepreneurs make their luck and fortune, they are, however, born in a environment where they don’t starve everyday or get stick without having a doctor to take care of them. According to a Recent research, it stated that when somebody is hungry or sick, that person’s natural creativity, physical as well as mental energy goes down. The person loses the desire to work and instead lose hope of that one day they too can make it out of their current disasters. That’s why you must never take your facilities, wealth and money for granted. Help out people that weren’t born in a rather decent environment. And then believe in the process. Whatever you give away, it will come back in ten-folds.
Hopefully now you understand the power of giving! Remember you can absolutely become supremely rich without ever giving a penny away because you don’t owe anybody anything nor anybody owe you anything but the reward and satisfaction that you will get from giving away is priceless. Not only will you spread positivity but also create more millionaires and billionaires that this world greatly needs. In the upcoming future, every problem in this will be solved by Entrepreneurs rather than by any Governmental Organization. “Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more.” - H.
