The power of giving

‘You can get anything you want out of life if you see that enough other people get what they want.’ – Zig Ziglar

Giving has always worked for me. The Law of Reciprocity states that once you give something to someone, they are far more likely to respond favourably to you. Other times, you give and don’t see a quick return, but sooner or later, often in ways you’d never expect, it all balances out.

I’ve made giving a core philosophy. On occasion though, I still have a bad day, worrying about my problems, screaming to get my own needs filled. Focusing on oneself is hard work. It’s far easier to focus on others.

Giving something with the expectation of an immediate return works, but giving a real gift, forgetting your needs and focusing on what other people want, will give you a much better return. The universe will never stay out of balance. You will attract everything you desire and more. All you have to do is give, and the Law of Reciprocity will always pay you back.

‘We can do no great things, only small things with great love.’ – Mother Teresa
