[Transcribed from podcast ep. #174] I wanted to share this quote, or this concept; I had a longtime friend of mine post something online the other day and it was very depressing… you know, “Get the job, buy the TV… eat the food, watch the shows…” Obviously you could see there was so much disillusionment with life and, “What the heck am I doing here?”, “Why the heck would I do this?”, “This is just all a big joke, this is just pathetic” kind of vibe (laughs)…

The one thing that this friend was missing, I felt like, was the understanding of what it’s really about, and that is serving others. I believe we’re all here to serve others because we are those others… I believe we will find ourselves always in a unique position, in some roundabout way, to give away what we want for ourselves to others. And, when you see these opportunities as, “Hmm, I have this thing that I can share or give that, in some way, helps this other person achieve what they want”… if you start looking at your life like that, “Hmm.. what today, who am I going to bump up against that is seeking something to fulfill themselves?” I’m not really seeking necessarily to fulfill myself as much as I’m seeking to help others to fulfill themselves, or to find what it is that they find more of.

Inspiring Five Year-Old Magician Shocks the Crowd with Real Magic!

A five year-old magician goes to the beach to spread his message of positivity… his first trick is cute… but his second feat of “real magic” stuns and delights everyone!

When start putting that lens on and looking at the world, going out into the world… things change; you will see different opportunities that you didn’t see before and it becomes a fun game for you to figure out how to serve. Once again, we’ve talked about this so many times and we’ll continue to talk about it, because it is a daily conscious effort to really understand, and to really shift our focus away from “me me me me me”—it’s such a self-centered sort of world out there in so many ways, and of course we’re conditioned into that; we’re raised into that, we’re brought up and taught, “This is the way it is—how do I get more for self?”

The irony of that is, that never brings the fulfillment: you can have the job, the money, the success, the sex, the friends—you can get it all and you always find… Jim Carrey said it best when he said: “I wish everyone could become rich and famous so they could see that’s not where it’s at.” Well, where is it at? It’s in serving others, because what you give to another you literally, energetically are giving to yourself as well; you’re giving this piece of yourself away and it’s not only benefitting them, those that are around and witness it or are part of it, affected by it—but it then circles back around and comes into your own life in unique and surprising ways.

This is the path to everything we want: to success, to happiness… I believe it so wholeheartedly and it’s something that I have to constantly remind myself of, because that’s what this show is about: reminding myself and hopefully reminding you in the process… what am I doing? (laughs) I’m giving what I want for myself to another, and as a result I’m benefitting, you’re benefitting and we’re all growing and learning. It’s a beautiful, beautiful mindset and perspective to shift into; once you’ve made the shift, it becomes addictive, it feels so good to do right by others. Every time I get the opportunity it feels so amazing, and I encourage all of you to just set out today, after you hear this, and say, “Okay, today is not about what I’m going to get for myself; it’s about, ‘what am I going to give?'” Look at the unique ways the Universe will deliver opportunities… and then notice, be aware, be conscious of how good it feels to do it.
