Has anyone had a hard time giving? Giving as in giving your time and effort? Giving your earnings? Giving all that to an individual or organization? The problem that exist with me when I give is that my mind makes it difficult that when I give I won’t receive anything in return. But isn’t that the law of sowing and reaping? When we give we will receive something greater in return.
You may ask well what makes your mind so influenced by not wanting to give? There are some factors to say but I’ve always had in mind that keeping your earnings, you build yourself more. Why should I give a person a particular set of cash flow when they aren’t going to invest it well within themselves? Another reason is those around me.
“The way you shape your life determines who you revolve your life around with.” That’s a famous quote I read and it’s true. Most of the people I revolve myself with are completely greedy. Knowing they have a great set of assets, they will not use it only to the minimal use as possible. This subject is very strong and I’m looking forward talking more about it in the near future. But, as I’m reflecting on giving, I had to change.
One of the ways I had to change is firstly change my attitude towards it. I had to put my mind in a positive mood and adapt to it because if we’re giving with the wrong attitude, we’re not sowing properly. To sow means to plant and expect a positive outcome. If we’re giving out of anger that trait carries that attitude and others will notice resulting perhaps in a negative outcome. Secondly what I had to do was inspire myself to keep giving. Listening to many audio of speakers with great success, they all said in order to succeed in life, one of the keys for it is to give back. Either giving it to charities or church, give to a place that may use it for great benefits.
It’s such an improvement I had, and giving hasn’t been a hard issue with me. The thought of putting the time or money on someone, and they result using it for bad use isn’t nothing to worry. I know perhaps no one may see it but when ever I have those assets to give, I truly give it with a great positive feeling.
Take the time to give. There are people I know that don’t take advantage of giving, and are too insecure about it. Gather your thoughts and find ways to give either by giving the time to coach someone about life, business or give funds putting in my that those funds will grow into a bigger outcome.
