Giving and receiving are the same
Who doesn’t love a generous person? While being generous is great for those who are beneficiaries, the habit of generosity does as much for the person who practices it. Truly generous people are often more successful in all areas of their lives.
Those willing to share their time, possessions, and talents with others are often some of the happiest people. They are more relaxed and less stressed because their happiness comes from giving more than taking.
Generosity rarely happens by chance. You must make a deliberate effort. Take a few simple steps to make generosity more intentional in your life. Get into the habit of regularly donating to a local charity or a cause you feel passionate about. Any amount will be appreciated. Try donating your time working with people in need, as well as associating with other generous people to learn more about the life-changing effects of practicing generosity.
