I have been out on a business trip and so far I have not been chanced to share some of my thoughts on a blog. I saw this great and inspiring little piece by a friend (Olugbenga Stephen Asaolu, a great motivational speaker) and thought to share it with you.

Being generous is not a function of income…it’s a function of the heart.
It doesn’t come from the top of the purse, but from the bottom of the heart.
You don’t need to be a multi-billionaire to be generous.
Money is not the only thing you can give.
Ordinary people spend their most valuable time making money
But extraordinary people utilize their time in making people
An encouraging word from you can give hope of a better tomorrow to a promising youth
A smile from you can help someone on a suicide mission reverse it!
It’s all about serving others…
Looking for ways to add value to them…
That’s the way to achieving significance in life.
Your purpose in life is not only “to have and to hold” but also “to give and serve”.
A highly successful steel merchant and philanthropist once said; “No man becomes rich unless he enriches others”.
Go do something!
