Improve your life through generosity
Don’t you just love people who are generous? Not because they give you things, but because they exude warmth. There’s something about them you can’t quite put your finger on that makes you want to be in their company.
Maybe it’s their genuine nature or joyful presence. You might not realize that people with a generosity mindset benefit from being givers. Their benevolence makes them as happy as it makes the receivers of their time, effort, and the other resources they freely share.
Develop the outlook of a giver and you’ll benefit in the following three ways from your bighearted attitude.
1. Generosity attracts abundance
Your generosity will come back to you. It won’t always stem from the same people you’ve been kind to, but it will return. Everyone identifies givers as valuable and treats them as such. Your life will be full of abundance in various forms if you are a giver.
2. Generosity will make you happy
Have you ever felt your heart swell with kindness when you’ve given someone a gift or gone out of your way to do something nice for them? That’s the impact of giving. The more generous you are the more feel-good chemicals will flood your system, infusing you with joy.
3. You’ll be less attached to stuff
Are you are hoarder? Not like people who fill every nook and cranny of each room, but in the sense you have far more material possessions than you need.
People who collect goods for the sake of doing so have a scarcity mindset. They fear not having enough of what they need. Their attitude reflects lack rather than abundance, even though they have plenty of possessions.
Develop a generosity mindset and you’ll redistribute stuff instead of amassing goods you’ll never use. Also, you will rewire your brain to drop your fear of insufficient resources.
Generosity is like a boomerang. Give kindness, time, or whatever you can share, and your philanthropy will have a positive impact on your life.
No doubt, your happiness and sense of value and compassion will grow with your social circle.
