What's the most magical way to use your money?
As you know by now, I believe in giving money away. It's a great way to practice Karmic Marketing, implement the law of tenfold return, make a difference in the world, and open yourself to receiving prosperity, as well.
While I may spend money on myself, Nerissa, loved ones and friends, there's nothing like the feeling of freely giving it to someone you don't know who touches your heart.
I was reminded of this yesterday.
I got an email about the progress of Kirk, a lovable little boy who suffered a stroke shortly after birth.
I didn't know that babies can suffer strokes. It wasn't until my friend Kevin Hogan told me about Kirk that I learned this is a problem few people address, and costs a lot of money to attempt to heal.
As a result, Kevin started a fund to help this little boy, Kirk. When Kevin asked me to donate, I was resistant. I had just sent money to my sister, and spent a lot on bills and such, and was feeling like I had done my share.
But I couldn't shake the feeling that little Kirk needed my help. So a little while later, on the same day, I shook off my scarcity fears and wrote Kevin back, saying I would help. I donated a large amount and trusted it would be put to good use.
Kirk was able to get his first operation and is already doing better. You can get a sense of him, and learn about him, at Amazing Kirk.
The point I want to share with you is that giving money to help Kirk made me feel better than anything else I've done in a long, long time.
Even better than ordering my BMW 645ci.
Even better than ordering my Rolex.
When I learned about Kirk's progress yesterday, I smiled. Then beamed. The good feelings I experienced are still with me. And it's these very good feelings that will go out into the world and attract more wealth to me. And when it does, I will again spread the good cheer.
I strongly suggest that you practice this "profitable philanthropy," as P. T. Barnum called it, who himself gave lots of money to many causes and experienced great wealth.
Give and grow rich.
PS -- Kevin Hogan just sent me an email, saying, "Check out Kirk's smile on that front page (www.amazingkirk.com); he couldn't do that 18 months ago...." This feels sooooo good.
