“Develop an obsession—a Magnificent Obsession—to help others.
Share yourself without expecting a reward, payment, or commendation. And above all else—keep your good turn a secret.
And, if you do this, you will set in motion the powers of a universal law. For, try as you will to avoid payment for your good deed—blessings and rewards will be showered upon you.”
Excerpt From: Napoleon Hill. “Success Through A Positive Mental Attitude.
Jack Ma: “Find a need and fill it.”
Tony Robbins: “The secret to living is giving.”
Reading that part of the book made me tear up. It reminded me of the time when Tony was driving a car, miserably, down the streets of some city in America before pulling over, turning on the overhead light in the car and writing down on a notepad “the secret to living is giving.”
He began to cry, too.
That insatiable feeling of wanting to give all the time, as much as I can — everyday.
Nathan, an American born teacher who’s now teaching in Aktobe, Kazakhstan, told me that I always inject a burst of energy, positivity and hunger inside of him when he hears and watches my 1-minute Instagram stories in the morning. See, that’s my inspiration.
The students, from all countries around the world, who rain me with “thank you so much! You helped me pass my IELTS test!” types of comments, are my alchemy.
I didn’t know so much about giving when I was younger. I didn’t know that it was my goal to give, to be honest. However, I feel a remarkable amount of fulfillment since doing it. Starting the podcast, getting students scores on particular tests to get a better job or to get into a university across the globe. That’s what it’s all about!
“No matter who you are, you can have a Magnificent Obsession. Every living person can help others by sharing a part of himself. You don’t have to be rich or powerful to develop a Magnificent Obsession. Regardless of who you are, or what you have been, you can create inside yourself a burning desire to be helpful to others.”
