What Can You Give?

Treating people well.

So this is something that irks me most of the time. It seems that many people forget where they came from and only see where they are now in life. Forgetting how it feels to start from scratch, forgetting how it feels to come from nothing. 

I have met many people that have reached a pinnacle, a certain status, or power in life that can now assume they can and do look down at people from their pedestal. A pedestal they placed themselves on. 

I would say it’s more of a child’s highchair than a pedestal.

Their behavior is unprofessional and whiny, they generally treat people like shit. Why? because they think they can, although they got to where they are and were helped by the very people they treat like dirt!

How about giving back?

This is another thing that drives me a little crazy. Many of the well-to-do, “rich” people or let’s say wealthy people are often forgetful. 

Forgetting what it is like to be nice.

Forgetting what it is like to be kind.

Forgetting understanding. 

Forgetting compassion. 

Forgetting themselves.

These few points are things individuals need to be reminded of. Giving back and caring is not a sign of weakness. It is a sign that you have grown as an individual and you have a heart. When you give, it feels good. Give time, money, and yourself. Trust me it will not hurt. 

You will most likely feel good in the end and the good you give will be returned to you in time. 

How much can you give?

Give your time, lend a hand, smile at people, and show them that you are human. Show them that you are someone that truly cares. It could be about employees, it could be about strangers or your family. Why are you a hard-assed miserable jerk all the time? 

Why are you miserable? 

Why are you mean? 

Why are you angry? 

Why are you sad? 

At what point in life did you turn into a selfish asshole, a selfish miserable jerk? What and when did you lose yourself in your so-called success? Giving yourself the power to be a freaking jerk? 

Well, now that you realize that you have been an asshole, go fix it. Be kind, be nice, and realize that there is more to life than chasing the next deal, the next big thing. See that you could be the next big thing by giving. 

Giving feels good and you will be looked upon as a caring, loving individual. The love and care you give will be returned to you by others. Hang in there and see that not everyone out there is like you. There are nice people out there so let them find you…

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
