No one has ever become poor by giving.
Living the life you desire requires a healthy dose of purpose and passion, with a little perspiration tossed in for good measure. After all, enjoying the good life where your days abound with the very best life has to offer never comes easy. Or does it? I guess that depends on whom you ask.
The best of the best routinely get the most out of life and actually make it look easy. You see, they understand that theres more to living than just getting all they can out of life. Rather than reaching and grabbing for all theyre worth, they choose to give and give some more. They have seized upon the most important, most indispensable concept known to mankind. They have discovered that the more they give the more they receive in return.
We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.
The best go-getters have always been lifes best go-givers. Day after day, lifes top achievers give their best effort and then give some more. Even when theyre about to give out or tempted to give in, they knuckle down and give it their very best shot. These winners cannot be defeated because they simply refuse to lose.
Instead of focusing on whats in it for them, getting as much as they can as quick as they can, they set their sights on something much more powerful, much more noteworthy. These individuals, the real movers and shakers renown for making things happen, live to give and then give some more.
The value of a man resides in what he gives and not in what he is capable of receiving.
This uncomplicated but extremely powerful precept is simply this: the more you give, the more you get in return. The more youre willing to give of yourself, the more youll have come back to you. And the more you give to others, the more you will have to give again. This LIVE TO GIVE approach and its immeasurable benefits are virtually lost on the vast majority of people.
Too many of us foolishly go through life harboring a scarcity mindset, a myopic mindset where we erroneously believe that theres only so much to go around. Instead of seeing the limitless bounty that surrounds us, abundance well beyond what any of us could ever hope to have and to hold, we see scarcity. So instead of giving and receiving, we choose to get all that we can get while the getting is good. And where does all of this getting actually get us? Almost without exception, it gets us right back where we started without and wanting more.
For it is in giving that we receive.
St. Francis of Assisi
Instead of worrying yourself sick about someone else reaching out and getting those things that you want, why not elect to reach out to as many people as you possibly can and help them get what they want out of life? Rather than obsessing over what you dont have or cannot do, why not channel your efforts and energy into getting the most out of what you have been given? You possess more unique gifts and talents than youll ever be able to harvest in a lifetime of giving.
When you stop fretting over whats in it for me and start selflessly giving to those all around you, you will find out whats in it for you as well. Almost magically, doors will suddenly open that were previously closed, offering up more opportunity daily than you ever dreamed possible in a lifetime. As soon as you commit to a lifetime of giving, life will begin giving you the greatest gift of all the life you deserve to live.
The Bottom Line: When you get good at giving, youll get even better at receiving.
