The secret to living is giving and it has enormous hidden profits that people are yet to discover. Selfishness is part of human lives and greed, a perfect companion. Most people prefer to sit and wait for someone to give them all that need. This destructive pattern of living has left many sad, broken, in pain, and on the defense at all times.
They wallow in the illusion that they are entitled to get anything they ask for whether they deserve it or not. These people go into relationships, friendships, partnerships, and collaboration with a twisted mindset that they don’t have to do anything in order to keep receiving whatever they need from others.
There are hidden profits in giving than in getting.
1. Giving eliminates disappointments:
The problem is not in the number of haves and have-nots you think that you deserve, it’s in your ability to realize that waiting for someone to give you all that you need without you giving back to them is a big risk. You can’t go on living your life dependent on what people should give you, you will meet with disappointments.
Try to understand this. There is joy in giving than in receiving. The measure you give, you get in return. If you want love, give love. If you want attention, give attention. Instead of sitting around and waiting for someone to give you what they also expect you to give them, why not give them the best part of yourself and watch them give you the best part of themselves.
2. Giving is the best form of living:
When it comes to giving, you can have your cake, eat it, and still have it back.
Why does it work this way? Because by giving something you have, life returns the favor to you. Getters don’t receive happiness; the wait to get is often too long, but givers do. Giving makes you happier and creates a warm glow around you. It activates a section in your brain that stimulates pleasure, and your connection with other people and how much you trust them.
3. Giving is a lifetime investment:
You know that feeling – the warm, pleasant one you get when you make a good investment? Turns out, it’s good for your life. A growing statistics show that when you give to others, you make a life investment. 50 years from now, you will still be reaping the bountiful benefits of your investments and oftentimes it extends to your generations yet unborn.
Instead of dreaming of a wonderful job that satisfies your needs, invest positive energy into your current job first. Instead of wanting your friends to invest time and energy in your relationship, why not invest some extra time and energy to them?
Do you want to love? Invest in giving love to other people. You get as much as you give. The awareness that you’re helping others is empowering and fulfilling. Nurturing your innate generosity will help you appreciate what you have and your aptitude to confront your insecurities and fears. The more you learn to give, the more you learn to love not just yourself but others.
