I have just read a book called The 10 Keys to Create Wealth to fulfill your lifes purposes. I paid special attention to the chapter talking about The Law of Reciprocity. I kept thinking; what does that mean? It is simply this: If you want to prosper in all areas of your life then you must give back to the community by offering a valued benefit for those you around you.
Ok, what does she mean? What I mean is this. If you want to succeed in life you have to give back. It is the unwritten law of nature. God speaks of this in his word. Give and it will be given unto you, good measure, pressed down and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you
Let me give you some examples:
A man I would like to meet, but have not yet is Michael Ellison who is the author of The 10 Keys to Create Wealth to fulfill your lifes purpose, is the classic example of a man using The Law of Reciprocity . He has achieved greatness in his family, friends, wealth and health by using this formula. He believes that by offering a wellness program to the community and by serving God at the same time he is giving something of value that benefits his clients. We all want to be healthy and gain financial wealth, dont we? I know I do. Now my thought is; how do we achieve this? For what gain is there to have wealth and no health. What do you profit if you spend your days wealthy and sick and no one to share your wealth with?
**Give something of Value and let it be a benefit to mankind**
Wealth is what you determine it to be. Some call it money in the bank, others call it having family, friends, a relationship with God, etc I say it can be that but can also include the wealth of prospering others in all walks of life by being a blessing to them and solving a problem for them.
If you were walking down the street and found a man injured on the road would you take the time to help him? The fact is that in this day and age most of us would call 911 or the police. The Law of Reciprocity is a different approach. Go to the injured man and assess his condition, talk to him to bring him comfort and to let him know you are there to help him, call the appropriate help, stay with him until help arrives, ask him if you can pray with him or if there is another way you can help him. Call his family, his friend or clergy. Do you see the difference here? You gave him something of value. It was not monetarily given but given from a human aspect. You put yourself out there. Now in 5 years when he tells this story to his friends or family do you think he will remember your kindness? Will he remember you? What will his thought be? I think it will be something like this.You know, I will never forget how sweet she was to help me and comfort me, she even offered to call people for me and to pray with me. Do you see here how that will stay with that person? You can do it the easy way, but will they remember? Most definitely not!
I would recommend this book to anyone for this chapter all by itself however there are many golden nuggets through out the entire book. I am glad you took the time to read my article and let me leave you this final thought.
We determine and choose in life our success and our failure. What will your choice be? Mine will be success in every aspect of my life by applying The Law of Reciprocity!
