Contribution: 6 Things Your Heart Needs to Hear You Say About the New Year 2013


  • Contribution can be small or great, but even your smallest contribution can change a person’s life, and make your heart grow.
  • Being able to contribute makes you feel valued, and strengthens your self-esteem.


  • You are a unique and amazing individual.
  • You have inside you a source of strength and wisdom waiting to be shared with the world.
  • The world has never seen, nor will ever see, the same unique contribution from any other person.


  • Giving out of pure love or compassion makes you feel good!
  • There’s no other way to experience that particular emotion which comes from giving unconditionally.


  • Charity starts at home!  Be good to yourself first, then you will be stronger to help others.
  • Be at peace with yourself.  Step by step learn to harmonise your Human Needs with your Values.
  • Listen to the call of your life purpose, and move into alignment with your best self.


  • Contribution shifts attitudes.
  • It carries you past your limiting beliefs.
  • It takes you out of your own problems and puts the things of your life into perspective.
  • You realise that your own struggles pale in comparison to the challenges faced by some others, and it inspires you when you see how powerful hope can be.


  • Contribution connects you with unconditional love.
  • It opens your Heart to grow a little each day, giving you more understanding, more compassion, more strength, and more peace.

  1. Hey Jamie, I love your post! Great blog! Thank you for reminding all of us to be good to ourselves. Your contributions are priceless!

    1. Thank you Laura… glad you enjoyed it!

  2. Hi Jamie,
    Loving the theme as we take care of others and contribute to the world as leaders, coaches, healers and spiritual leaders we stand out in our communities. By taking good care of ourselves in the ways you mention we become great examples to our clients, or potential clients. It is the best first step in education we can provide.

    1. What you say about education is so true Karen… thanks for your insight and for giving more context to my post!

  3. We are often the first to acknowledge others for their accomplishments, but many of us fail to celebrate our own accomplishments. Thank you for showing us six important reminders how the contributions we make to ourselves can have such a positive effect on others.

    1. Thanks Bill… yes it’s easy to forget about how important it is to honour ourselves. By the way I used the Headline Hacks to come up with this post! 😉

  4. Jamie, this made me think of something I’m trying to shift to again in my business (and life).

    I used to help everyone! All the time!
    Then, I got burned and quit doing it at all.

    So, I’m trying to shift back to giving freely of my knowledge on a regular basis, but not all the time.

    1. I’m glad you could relate to the ideas in this post Jenn. I think what you are describing is a very common experience. Often it’s easier to say “yes” to other’s demands when in fact we need to look after ourselves by saying “no” when it’s necessary! Finding the right balance is a continuous effort! I admire your awareness and commitment to giving freely but with measure! (Y)
