"You have not lived today until you have done something for someone who can never repay you.” John Bunyan.
These are some of the hidden secrets of successful people that perturbs many ordinary people as to why affluent people make it habit to donate part of their wealth to charity, churches or programmes that uplift humanity. The secret that they know that you don’t know is that by giving there are automatically inviting tonnes of blessings in their lives.
Unfortunately the ordinary man defines that as luck but it is not, it a consequence of an action and it one of nature rules that always works. The more you give the more you attract BUT Give to give and don’t give to get. Some give money and some give their lives to humanity but irrespective of what you give the consequence is perennial blessings.
If you start practicing the “miracle of giving” today the universe rearranges itself to greatly bless you with more than you desire.
There is an exciting mystic power connected to giving, and this concept has been scribed from biblical times and holds true to that. In many interviews that have been carried amongst millionaires all of them hold the issue of giving so dear that they do it with all their hearts. They give their income readily because they have come to understand the power of giving.
One of the Money Mind Rules of Money is that 10% of what you earn must be given to your church, a charity or any noble cause that seek to advance disadvantaged people. In MoneyMind today we unravel the mystic but undeniable miracle of giving.
Success is not necessarily for religious although many self-made millionaires and successful people are deeply spiritual. However it will not hurt to draw inspiration from the Bible “Whoever wants to be successful should be the servant of all”
In your pursuit of success giving from the goodness of your heart seems to somehow garner the goodwill of the universe. You align yourself with the goodness of the world so long as this is done with humility and when you are discreet about it.
Nobody needs to know that you helping people and you don’t do it for recognition but you do it because it the right thing to do. If you do your life will overflow with abundance.
Giving makes you content and when you are content you feel fulfilled and when you feel fulfilled you become positive and you will certainly experience the miracle of giving. They say a blessed life is not a lucky life.
Religion expert Daniel Brown inspires the proposition on the miracle of giving and I quote “ Blessing is neither a random occurrence nor luck, it is a consequence linked to something we have previously done…we can step into blessing anytime we choose.”
Getting blessings and goodwill from the universe no matter which religion you are from is a deliberate choice. Therefore it is no accident why millionaires give away 10% of their fortune and here is the exciting thing, you don’t have to wait to be a millionaire to start giving. If you start giving now you are attracting blessings but remember this has to be done with humility. Start today to buy school uniforms to the needy, a pair of shoes because winter is approaching and you will experience abundance like never before.
I need to emphasize that it must not be done for show off, It must be done for its purpose. The joy of giving must be for the person who gives and the grace and blessing are inherent. Our biggest and foremost purpose is to lend a helping hand to one another. The very notion of helping improves your self-worth, knowing that you have done some good to the society and you become content and fulfilled.
The spiritual effect of giving gives you inner peace, the contentment that you have are playing your part, the inner tranquillity that you pushing somebody else closer to their destiny, the knowledge that abundance on its own does not fulfil but purpose fulfils and that is the miracle of giving.
You will start to appreciate the miracle of giving, when you understand that our successes are inextricably bound to one another’s, because it does not make sense for you to amass wealth when the rest of the people are swimming in a lake of poverty. You cannot be a good neighbour when the old man next door does not have a roof over his head but you continue to live as if nothing is amiss.
Somebody might be asking themselves why is it my problem? It is not your problem but you have an opportunity of amassing great goodwill from the universe by being noble and by knowing that blessings are a choice. You can choose a life of abundance or a life of unpredictability.
Start giving today

The state of the art jewellery manufacturing plant that has been set up by international diamond and cutting company, KGK Diamonds Botswana will create over 100 jobs, of which 89 percent will be localized.
Local diamond and metal exploration company Tsodilo Resources Limited has negotiated a non-brokered private placement of 2,200, 914 units of the company at a price per unit of 0.20 US Dollars, which will provide gross proceeds to the company in the amount of C$440, 188. 20.
According to a statement from the group, proceeds from the private placement will be used for the betterment of the Xaudum iron formation project in Botswana and general corporate purposes.
The statement says every unit of the company will consist of a common share in the capital of the company and one Common Share purchase warrant of the company.
Each warrant will enable a holder to make a single purchase for the period of 24 months at an amount of $0.20. As per regularity requirements, the group indicates that the common shares and warrants will be subject to a four month plus a day hold period from date of closure.
Tsodilo is exempt from the formal valuation and minority shareholder approval requirements. This is for the reason that the fair market value of the private placement, insofar as it involves the director, is not more than 25% of the company’s market capitalization.
Tsodilo Resources Limited is an international diamond and metals exploration company engaged in the search for economic diamond and metal deposits at its Bosoto Limited and Gcwihaba Resources projects in Botswana. The company has a 100% stake in Bosoto which holds the BK16 kimberlite project in the Orapa Kimberlite Field (OKF) in Botswana.
African heads of state and global CEOs at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting backed the launch of the first of its kind report on how public-private partnerships can support the implementation of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA).
AfCFTA: A New Era for Global Business and Investment in Africa outlines high-potential sectors, initiatives to support business and investment, operational tools to facilitate the AfCFTA, and illustrative examples from successful businesses in Africa to guide businesses in entering and expanding in this area.
The report aims to provide a pathway for global businesses and investors to understand the biggest trends, opportunities and strategies to successfully invest and achieve high returns in Africa, developing local, sub-regional and continental value chains and accelerating industrialization, all of which go hand in hand with the success of the AfCFTA.
The AfCFTA is the largest free trade area in the world, by area and number of participating countries. Once fully implemented, it will be the fifth-largest economy in the world, with the potential to have a combined GDP of more than $3.4 trillion. Conceived in 2018, it now has 54 national economies in Africa, could attract billions in foreign investment, and boost overseas exports by a third, double intra-continental trade, raise incomes by 8% and lift 50 million people out of poverty.
To ease the pain of transition to its new single market, Africa has learned from trade liberalization in North America and Europe. “Our wide range of partners and experience can help anticipate and mitigate potential disruptions in business and production dynamics,” said Børge Brende, President, and World Economic Forum. “The Forum’s initiatives will help to ease physical, capital and digital flows in Africa through stakeholder collaboration, private-public collaboration and information-sharing.”
Given the continent’s historically low foreign direct investment relative to other regions, the report highlights the sense of excitement as the AfCFTA lowers or removes barriers to trade and competitiveness. “The promising gains from an integrated African market should be a signal to investors around the world that the continent is ripe for business creation, integration and expansion,” said Chido Munyati, Head of Regional Agenda, Africa, World Economic Forum.
The report focuses on four key sectors that have a combined worth of $130 billion and represent high-potential opportunities for companies looking to invest in Africa: automotive; agriculture and agroprocessing; pharmaceuticals; and transport and logistics.
“Macro trends in the four key sectors and across Africa’s growth potential reveal tremendous opportunities for business expansion as population, income and connectivity are on the rise,” said Wamkele Mene, Secretary-General, AfCFTA Secretariat.
“These projections reveal an unprecedented opportunity for local and global businesses to invest in African countries and play a vital role in the development of crucial local and regional value chains on the continent,” said Landry Signé, Executive Director and Professor, Thunderbird School of Global Management and Co-Chair, World Economic Forum Regional Action Group for Africa.
The Forum is actively working towards implementing trade and investment tools through initiatives, such as Friends of the Africa Continental Free Trade Area, to align with the negotiation process of the AfCFTA. It identifies areas where public-private collaboration can help reduce barriers and facilitate investment from international firms.
