With some things, the more you give, the more you have.Aug 30, 2021
There are only so many hours in a day, and you only have so much bandwidth and energy. It's probably best that you protect and even horde these assets, right?
I'm not so sure.
I mean, yes, you should spend your time, attention, and effort judiciously. And yet, understand there is an approach to extending invaluable resources in a sustainable and renewing way.
With some things, the more you give, the more you have—especially when you present them with integrity and intention and give from the inside out.
Here are just a few things that I have found to grow more abundant the more I share them.
Gratitude - I began my practice in sharing three simple gratitudes out loud and in public many years ago. This ritual makes me more appreciative every day than I was the day before.
Charity - Extending forbearance, leniency in judgment, and generosity of action toward others have helped me become far more charitable toward myself as well.
Delight - The more I design delight into my offerings, paid and free, the more delighted I find myself.
What would you add to this list? What are the values and virtues that grow the more you extend them?
