Motivational Monday...Giving

 

Have you ever watched something and couldn’t stop smiling and clapping?

 

The other night I watched the final performances of this year’s America’s Got Talent.*

 

 

This year’s winner, magician Dustin Tavella, inspired the judges and audience with his stories, especially his performance at the finale. 

 

He told the story of how one person who entered his life and that of his parents turned all of their lives around. If you listen to just the first minute and a half, you’ll see what I mean.

 

If you have more time to invest in the 6+ minute video, you will not be disappointed. 

His message is that each one of us has something to give to others. It isn’t just about giving a donation of money but giving our time...an ear when someone needs us to listen...a smile when one is needed. 

 

It may mean stepping up when no one else will. It could mean that special thumbs up or pat on the back that says “I’ve got your back.”

 

If you need a boost to begin your week, think about who needs your help this week. 

 

And if you have some extra time, watch the video!



Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love. Lao Tzu

 

You can give without loving, but you can never love without giving. Robert Louis Stevenson



* (For those of you who do not watch America’s Got Talent, I would encourage you to give this one a try. Some of the talent on the show is better than the professionals we see)

When I heard the Space X flight with the four civilians was going to donate the money to St Jude hospital, I thought wow, that is great. I heard Elon Musk donated $50 million more today (which says two things...he is very generous AND way too rich)

Hi Kathy Streib - WOW!  I believe in the power of the Universe and all the good it has to offer.  That video was not only a showcase of his amazing magical power but a showcase for his ability to motivate people in such a powerful way.

Hi Kathy Streib, giving can not and should not be done without love or it's not giving.

Sham Reddy CRS as are you!!! Thank you!!!

Wayne Martin I think this year was one of the best. Brooke Simpson was so much better than the professional she sang with at the Results show.

Nina Hollander, Broker you'd be amazed at the quality of some of the acts. 

Kat Palmiotti we don't normally watch these kinds of programs but there has been some really good talent on and many have gone on to Vegas.

Will Hamm thinking of you and wishing you all the best for your surgery. 

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® wasn't it amazing. This season had some remarkable performers including a taekwondo group that was like nothing I've ever seen.

Hi Kathy:

Thank you for such a thoughtful post, and a truly inspiring video. Giving takes on a very different meaning when you don't think in financial terms.
