In addition to the inspirational quotes, the beautiful images, my own personal and business blogs, the recommended reading list, and information on my consulting business, I would like to share some of the writings of various thought leaders.


There are laws at work in the universe regarding the flow of energy. As money is energy, it follows the same laws. The Law of Attraction concerns the cycle of giving and getting. You give what you want to get. What you put out in the world comes back to you. The universe gives you things and when you give them back you complete the flow of energy.

Giving back is spiritual in nature. Take an inventory of all that you have now and all that you get everyday. Are you grateful for it? Giving back is a way of saying Thank You to the universe. It creates a sense of alliance with the universal laws of abundance. There is enough for everyone; you need not hoard what is given to you. When you give back you are sending out an energetic message that you acknowledge that you have enough and you have a heart of gratitude for all that has come your way. When you give back you open yourself to receive more.

Giving back, or tithing, can come in different forms. It can come in the form of money, which is typically 10% of your gross income. Tithing your money should be a humble experience. Tithing shouldn’t be done whimsically. Think carefully about where you get your spiritual energy. What group, person, or organization keeps you spiritually inspired? It can be different every month, but there are sources in your life that keep you spiritually enlightened. Giving money to these sources keeps them going for you. You put into motion a powerful cause and effect. You are sending your appreciation in the form of dollars they can use to keep being a source of spiritual growth.

Giving back money truly does create space in your life to receive more money. When you provide a space in your life for what you want, it gets filled with that very thing. But tithing isn’t simply about giving so you will get more. Tithing is all about gratitude and admitting that you are truly blessed for what you’ve already received.

However, there is the Law of Attraction in the universe. All energy circulates like weather. If you take all you get without giving back you create an energy imbalance, blocking its natural process. Wealth will not be able to flow to you or from you. When you give, you open yourself up to get it back. You allow the energy of abundance to flow to you and to flow from you.

Another way to give back is through your time. Serving through volunteer work creates the same flow of energy in your life. Volunteering also has many advantages that can help you achieve your success. Volunteer work provides a way for you to network with others who serve. You open yourself to new opportunities by meeting people you otherwise would not have met. You might even get offered a new opportunity simply by exposing the world to the skills that you possess. Even young people who volunteer are more likely to end up landing higher paying jobs than their peers who don’t serve.

You can develop new skills by volunteering, thereby getting a free education through service. You’ll build your self-esteem by being productive, learning new skills, and creating a large network of relationships. Just as giving money, though, be sure to give your time to organizations that speak to you. You’ll feel so much more committed and have a greater sense of contentment when you are part of a group that you truly believe in.

Giving back is a trait that successful people share. Trust the energy of abundance. Give a portion of what you are given and discover for yourself how such a simple act can powerfully affect your life.
