During the holiday season I notice how people’s attention turns to giving. Giving gifts to family and friends, as well as giving to charities. Why not resolve in 2010 to be a dedicated giver all year long?
When you make a genuine difference for others, without attachment and expectation of getting something in return, amazing prosperity will come your way. This is a true practice of Giving!
As you concentrate on giving, there is little room for self-absorbed focus on your fears or sense of financial lack. When you give to others, it puts you into proper prospective, generates appreciation and gratitude, and can even humble you at times.
Giving is an art that people who are great with money practice each day. Your gifts can be as simple as a smile to the stranger in the elevator, a compliment given unexpectedly, an offer to bring food to an elderly neighbor or showing appreciation and encouragement to your child.
Starting today, pause and make a list of all the gifts you can give. Be creative and make them simple gifts you can give right now
