The Power of Generosity

Dec 24, 2023

It's the season of giving and generosity!

And if you keep reading, you'll learn three ideas to inspire you to carry the spirit of generosity with you in the new year.

This is important because living in the spirit of generosity will improve your life in countless ways!

1. The more you give, the more you get back

You know, circulation is a foundational principle of life. For example, the solar system is circulatory. Your body's cardiovascular system is circulatory.

And by working in harmony with this principle, you can achieve more of what you want. When you give, your generosity will make it's way back to you.

But in your giving and generosity, it's important to bring the right attitude. And this means giving with an open, loving heart and not expecting anything in return from the recipient.

You can be confident that your good will return to you but it maybe not be how or from whom you expect!

2. There are countless way to give

You might think that giving and generosity are about money and material gifts. And it's wonderful to give (and receive) such gifts!

But there are so many ways to express your generosity, most of which don't involve money:

  • notice what others do well and give sincere compliments
  • send thoughts of love and kindness
  • smile often including with family, colleagues and even strangers
  • give aways things you don't need
  • help a neighbor or give your time to someone in need

Just the simple act of smiling at others on a daily basis is a generous gift!

3. When you live in the impression of increase, YOU benefit

This is an idea I learned from one of my personal growth teachers, Bob Proctor. It's based on the notion that all life is seeking increase.

As Wallace D. Wattles wrote in The Science of Getting Rich, "The desire for increase is inherent in all nature; it is the fundamental impulse of the universe. All human activities are based on the desire for increase; people are seeking more food, more clothes, better shelter, more luxury, more beauty, more knowledge, more pleasure - increase in something, more life." (1)

Everyone wants increase! And when you leave others with the impression of increase, they feel better and you do, too. YOU benefit when you are giving generously!

You don't have to wait for the holidays, birthdays or the end of your tax year to give generously. Make a commitment to give generously everyday and you'll tap into the power of generosity.
