Small Sacrifices, Big Benefits 3/3

I would like to wrap up this three part series by focusing on the soul. Here's how you can make some sacrifices to reap big benefits :)

For your soul:

- "Sacrifice" some time from your week to teach what you know how to do well. There are a few benefits to this; you are polishing your existing skills while teaching someone a new one that they can use for the rest of their lives, as well as forward to others. Also think of this as continuing your legacy in this world :) Win, win, win.

- Take a moment to think before you comment, "sacrifice" the need to say something bitter or harsh even if you deem it to be true and on the mark.  There are big benefits to this particular sacrifice - you will save someone from getting hurt by your words and that good karma will come back to you sooner rather than later. Plus, you will feel completely awesome when you look back at your tongue taming :). Trust me, it has taken me a long time to adopt this trait and I feel so much better with my sweeter tongue :)

- "Sacrifice" some of your wealth for the benefit of others, aka, charity. You will only get richer, in more ways than one.

Please share some of your "sacrifices" that bring big benefits to your life. I would love to hear from you.
