What Is My Contribution?

Job Openings – Apply Within

Contribution?  It’s an interesting word with multiple definitions depending on your mindset.  Some of you may be thinking charitable giving; some are doting over how much you put into your retirement funds this year; and still there are those who simply understand it as being plain old giving of yourself.  It is that last one that I want to focus on today.

This big world has seven-billion inhabitants who each have something to contribute.  That in itself is amazing and thought-provoking.  What are you giving?  How do you present YOU to the world?  What gifts and talents are pouring out of you regularly?  Do you spend too much time wishing that you could do something or be someone different only to miss living the life you have?

You need to consider your “contribution” a pretty close relative to your purpose…they should be doing holidays together.  Here’s the thing though:  If one shows up to Aunt Betty’s for the big swaree (life) without the other, the party is just not going to be as fun.  In other words, just because you have a purpose doesn’t mean that you are acting on it.  Contributing is the movement; it’s the act of employing yourself with purpose.  The ultimate party.

I do try to think the best of people in general, so I’d like to believe that most of us want to do more – give more.  If only just thinking about it got the job done though.  Good, positive thoughts help, but action changes things; it gets the job done.  What job?  The one that you are supposed to be attending to.  You have to figure that one out for yourself.

Here’s a few hints.

It should not exhaust you; though, it may require hard work.

It might not look like you think it should.

• Others may never appreciate what it is.

• You may never know how much it impacts the world.

• Stop looking so hard for it; you are probably already doing it.

• No matter what it is, it’s important.

So, what is your contribution?  Be well-be beautiful.

About Kellie R. Stone

"I make no excuses for my diverse roles as a Rock Your Feminine Type Coach™ and Branding Expert, best-selling author, and crime thriller novelist. Yes, I do still chuckle a bit at the irony. I kick ass as a women’s biz coach by day and kill off vulnerable fiction characters at night. What the hell, it makes for some interesting dreams. I believe that everyone should pursue their passions no matter how out there they seem to be. One of those pure heart-fluttering passions for me has always been writing. Since I did, indeed, chase my dream of being a writer, I've published two non-fiction books in the self-development genre, co-authored an international best seller, and now I'm finally pushing my much-too-old-to-be-in-the-nest novel out the door and into the world. My whole world is empowering and I adore showing others how to live life unfiltered, whether I do that through the written word or my coaching work. I love my job!" ~Kellie R. Stone

    I love this website.

    I love, love, love women who want to encourage and empower women.

    This is so inspirational to me and I have been looking for something like this to get me going in the a.m.

    Women are powerful creatures and many of us need guidance from our predecessors.

    So once again, thank you for being committed to this and pulling it off.
