The Go-Giver - True Prosperity is Achieved Through Giving

In December 2011 in the middle of the holidays and several Active Rain challenges, Jeanean Gendron started the Go-Giver Group and challenged the AR community to “Please join the group and make a commitment to buy the book and read it during the Holidays …. “ 

As much as I adore Jeanean, I passed on her invitation challenge because I could not think of adding another book to my reading list or adding another “to do” on my already endless list! I was feeling stressed out and challenged out!

Life is ever-changing.  What a few days or weeks can do to change our perspective! 

I committed to reviving a healthier, happy, me in 2012.  This resulted in my own personal weight loss challenge (there is that word again!) which begins tomorrow, Sunday, February 5, 2012. 

I’m following the Chris Powell Carb Cycling program.  While I was online buying the Chris Powell book and workout DVD, I also purchased

One thing is for absolute certain. The principles of the book are not foreign to me.  It’s like a kick-in-the butt refresher course about all I know about life, living, loving, and giving. 

I must confess, I allowed myself to slip from the level of giving consciousness that makes me happiest.  I’m already feeling a shift back home to who and how I want to be in this world. 

Pindar’s “Five Laws to Stratospheric Success” are no secret.  I feel many of us over-think life.  We tend to make life hard when it is really very simple. 

The First Law – The Law of Value: “Your true worth is determined by how much more you give in value than you take in payment.”

The Second Law – The Law of Compensation: “Your income is determined by how many people you serve and how well you serve them.”

The Third Law – The Law of Influence: “Your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people’s interests first.”

The Fourth Law – The Law of Authenticity: “The most valuable gift you have to offer is yourself.”

The Fifth Law – The Law of Receptivity: “The key to effective giving is to say open to receiving.”

My gift to you is to encourage you to read the book, The Go-Giver.  I can't do it for you. Join the Circle and together we will create ultimate happiness and miracles.

"Wealth can be achieved in many ways. It's our birthright to be prosperous. True prosperity is achieved through giving."  Kathleen Daniels

Note to Jeanean: You may now send me the Go-Giver Companion book you so graciously offered to give me.  I am ready to receive your gift!

Hi Bob,  You are most welcome.  The timing of reading the book was perfect ... just what I needed when I needed it.  I will definitely pay it forward and give the book to someone.  Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

Hi Kathleen ~ I believe to be 'officially' registered at AR. Thank you so much.

Today I went to the local and UNI library to search for Pindar's Five Laws...Amazing and exciting...

How can I please join the Go Giver group? Am I worthy? Not many people know me...Are there specific parameters to be fulfilled? A initiation practise? Attunement proceedures?

Thank you for now...looking forward to new inspirational posts. Be well

Please do call out any time and about anything of interest to you to real estate related matters 'down under' Thank you. Thanks a lot.

P.S. I printed your short note version of Pindar's Five laws to Stratospheric Success.... to have them at hand in my home, in the office, and at TAFE...I feel they are a fabulous inspiration, and just letting the meaning touch the subconscious, heart, soul and mind creates already profound vibrations.

Dear Kathleen - An "excellent" post on the book & as Andrea said you made our day!!  I am behind as I have a big bandage on my nose & glasses haven't been too comfortable to wear....  I am glad that Jeanean "featured" this & I am going to re-blog.  I am sure there are sooooo many caring "Go-Givers" in our group here on Active Rain, that it will "feel like home" to come back & be reminded of these principals.  Thanks for sharing your thoughts & the valuable recap!  Wishing you all the best to come!

Hi Kathleen,

I read the book recently.

Didn't know there was a group organized around it.

Thanks for highlighting it.

Pam, My goodness ... a big bandage on your nose ... whatever it is I hope your nose is healed and the bandage is off soon.  I'm glad reading the post made your day.  I believe we have many "Go-Givers" in the Rain.  We simply need to work together to ensure they know about the groups.  Thank you for your comment. 

Phil, Please join the group and share your thoughts and experiences.  Thanks for stopping by.

Joy, Thank you.  I have joined the Servant Leadership Group

I just read about the term go-giver on someone else's post. I didn't realize it was a book.

I came here from Joy Daniels reblog.  I have heard of this book, but I haven't read it.  Probably something I should look into.  Thanks for the post. -Kasey
