I was at breakfast one morning with the late Max Keeping when he bestowed some wisdom on me.
He said, “Fahd when you live a life of service, you will always get back more than you ever gave.”
This conversation came at a time, where I found myself volunteering so much, for so many different organizations, but struggling to pay my school tuition. I had felt burnt out and stressed, and I complained to Max that it felt like I was always giving, and getting nothing in return.
He said, “When you stop doing it to get something in return will be the precise moment it begins to give.”
At the time I dismissed it’s validity and took it for one of those “life sayings.”
Today, I claim it to be one of life’s universal truths.
Create genuine, tremendous value for others – as a leader, an entrepreneur, a community builder and you will get back more than you ever imagined.
I tour Canada speaking to young leaders today, because of the time I spent building my community here in Ottawa, and helping make the lives our youth better.
Thought I’d shoot a behind the scenes for you, as I go on tour speaking for five days, in South Eastern Ontario!
