When I started writing today’s blog I had a different topic and then came the news of Nelson Mandela’s death. I am not sure I can add to the many tributes already circulating; he was, and will always remain, one of the great human beings. I focus on abundance – what does that have to do with Mandela?
One of my definitions of abundance is “to be fully alive ‘til you’re fully dead”. To put it another way – “When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, ‘I used everything you gave me’”. (Erma Bombeck)
Mandela took the responsibility of being alive very seriously, he understood the role he had chosen and he never backed down. He certainly used up all he had been given for his journey. If that isn’t abundance, I’m not sure what is.
If we each gave quarter the effort of this inspiring man, hell only give 10%, the world would be a better place; the
term “Human Rights” would be unnecessary, love would be the measure of success and abundance would indeed be manifest.
