Today is a great day to start to give back if you aren’t sure where to start. “Giving back” can be as simple as sharing kindness with others, buying a coffee for the person behind you, donating money to a foundation you believe in, or just spreading the word on #GivingTuesday.
“The importance of giving back to society can’t be understated and that’s because the secret to living is giving. If you really think about it, what is life all about? Creating meaning. How do you create meaning in your life? It’s not about what you do for yourself: It’s about how you’re able to better the lives of the people around you – your loved ones, the people in your community or the lives of people somewhere else in the world.” -Tony Robbins, read more about what Tony says about giving back here.
