The benefits of doing service, instead of working for self ..

"Giving yourself to others is the most important thing. When you give, you get something in return." - Michael Milken

This is a quote which made me sit up and think. 


We have heard and seen much about charity, the act of giving to others. Mother Teresa is the greatest example on planet earth of giving and living for others. But how does giving to others get us something in return ?

Mother Teresa got peace of mind, respect and happiness in return for all the good deeds she had done to society.

Gandhiji got freedom for his motherland and respect from the world for the service to society

John D Rockefeller got all the respect, peace of mind, happiness and health when he pledged all his wealth to the Rockefeller foundation at the beginning of 20 th century in 1913.

When a teacher gives to his students unconditionally, he gets back respect, adoration and love from his students throughout life.

When an employee gives his best to the organisation, the organisation rewards him by better pay, perks, prestige and promotions.

Giving is the most important thing in life, not keeping to oneself.
