The gift

Humans by nature are exceptional in our ability to give. No other creature is so destructive and generous at the same time. Quite remarkable actually.

How do we tap into our more generous side?

It’s much easier when we are rich. I am not talking about dollar amounts here. But rich in mindset. When we are thinking in terms of a growth mindset, infinite in possibility, when we are not focused on outcomes but instead focused on the experience, when we are being seekers and throwing ourselves fully into learning–we are rich. And when we are rich and abundant, we are more willing to give. With that attention, giving ourselves fully to the experience, we are now in a generous state.

Giving has nothing to do with writing a check.
