Who wants to be a millionaire?

Who would love to be a philanthropist?

I have had the opportunity to talk to several people who have shared about what they would do IF they hit the lottery, won a million dollars, were blessed with a large financial winfall.

They would give to the poor or a noble cause.

It seemed to be an universal theme to use their new found wealth to bless others.

I generally follow up with this question :  who do you support (give donations to) now?

Sadly the answer is generally "No one" or "None"

It made me think of the biblical theory of never growing weary of doing good and doing the most with what you have to bless others.  It says if you are faithful with little things you will be blessed with big things because you have shown yourself faithful and trustworthy.

If you give to help other when it is a stretch for you, you will be blessed.

So I ask you as we end 2012.  Who do you support?  Have you donated money, time, resources (clothing etc.) to a local charity or service organization?  Have you done something to help someone outside of the scope of your job position and your familial obligations? 

This does not have to be done for the public to see.  It's about You and fulfilling a higher purpose.

Many of us are blessed.  We may not be millionaires yet we do have something to give.

Search your heart  and give as you feel lead.

Happy New Years Everyone.

Finish Strong

Overall I really enjoyed 2012 it was a very fun and productive year.

The blessings I enjoyed in 2012 are numerous I feel truly loved and highly favored.

I am looking forward to 2013 to see how I can be of use and make a difference in the lives of many people worldwide

My 2013 mission statement is to make a difference in the lives of many people worldwide.

I will monitor this by monthly and quarterly status checks to reevaluate how I can be of more use in the subsequent quarters of the year.

Join me in mapping out a strategic plan for life.

I started with a mission statement.

Now I will reflect on 2012 and see how I can improve on 2012s performance and results. Then set those outcomes as reachable goals for 2013.

My goal in 2013 is to Make the most of every encounter and every situation I find myself in this new year. I want to ensure I accomplish my mission statement daily.

What are your goals for 2013?

How are you finishing 2012?

I encourage you to finish strong.

If there is something left undone that you can accomplish in the next two days please Do It.

Look through your 2012 planner beginning with January and check for projects unfinished, things undone, people you forgot to contact.

Finish strong.

Do as much as you can Do before we bid farewell to 2012.
