Give Before You Get

Have you read The Go-Giver by Bob Berg yet? This inspirational book sums up how important it is to “give before you get”.  Putting others first and adding value to their life will come back to you in ways you will not believe. 

Each year I write a new motto for my screen saver and this year it says “Give Before You Get”.  It is a simple but powerful phrase. You can give money, time or yourself – just give first and you will be rewarded many times over.

With so many charities and people in need, you have to decide what is important and has a special meaning which is why I chose to be a part of the Walk for Lupus Now helping to raise money for the Lupus Foundation of America.  In a previous post, Step Out for a Worthy Cause: Walk for Lupus Now, I talked about my sixteen year old niece who was recently diagnosed with Lupus. Through her inspiration our team, WingWard, was formed and will be participating in the Peidmont Chapter Walk for Lupus Now in Charlotte on May 1.

If you would like to help make a difference, please go to my webpage on the Walk for Lupus Now website, Sharyn’s Page, to make a donation. is a website that donates to your charity simply by becoming a facebook fan, tweeting or blog posting about them to help spread the word.  The charities that they currently support are WWF, World Vision and Make a Wish Foundation.

Whatever charity or organization you choose to help will appreciate your time and efforts. See how good it feels to be a part of something that will make a difference in someone's life.   Remember...give before you get.
