I don't have enough for myself, how on earth am I supposed to give to others? Sound familiar? The more you say this, and I know you have, we all have, the more you will have not enough or less. We want to give, really we do, but where are we supposed to give from if our own well is dry? I completely understand those questions and where you are coming from. But.
Remember the law of attraction. What you think and speak, you attract. You only don't have enough because you keep telling yourself you don't have enough to give. Hence, you will never have enough. But it doesn't have to be like this. start telling yourself you have lots and then start giving. Here are 10 reasons why you need to start doing that right now.
1. Let go of that.
Learn how to detach from desperation and hang on to things you probably should have let go of a long time ago. We often won't give because we are in a scarcity mindset. If I give you this, I will have none. I can't give because it ' s mine and I have so little. Release that mindset and desperation anxiety and watch your life become abundant.
2. Go away ego.
Learn how to give from the heart. Too many of us do many things from our egos. Once you learn how to give from the heart and the ego takes a back seat, your heart will grow bigger and bigger and the ego will eventually disappear. This is not an easy thing to do because we all think we give to get something back. Don't do that. That's ego. What you get back is joy.
3. Better than a happy pill.
Way better. If you are sad or somewhat out of sorts, go and help someone who can't help you back and soon you will see how happy you have become. When we give and watch someone else beam with love and happiness, the only thing that can happen is that you become happy too.
4. Open the portals.
The abundance portals. The more you give, the more you receive, even without asking or expecting anything. That is simply how it works. You have to keep the conveyor belt of abundance operating continually. When you stop, the portals close up. Think of it as replacing old with new, good with better, better with best.
5. Make new friends.
People who give tend to gravitate towards each other. They truly find each other somehow. You will find like minded people and quite possibly, if you are looking, maybe even a new partner. You will make new friends and expand your giving circle.
6. Make someone smile.
Perhaps you are giving clothes to a shelter or buying lunch for the homeless guy on the street. It doesn't matter what you do or give, someone is going to be smiling because of your generosity and that is simply the best. Knowing that your random act of kindness and giving had such a profound effect on another human being who, quite possibly, is a stranger.
7. A new start.
For someone. If you are donating clothes, for example, to a shelter, these items of clothing may be just what someone needs to go find a new job, start a new life, feel better about themselves. Your generous donation has the potential to be life changing for someone. That's awesome right there.
8. The world is in need.
We need more healers, helpers and lovers. We are in need of loving and caring people who will help each other, no matter what. If you don't think you can make a difference, think again. It only takes one random act of kindness to start a domino effect. It can start with you. Be a world changer.
9. Achieve legendary greatness.
It's in you to be legendary and awesome. If not you, then who? If you don't think you can then you never will. Of course you can. We all can. Do big things, little things, any things just do something that contributes to the growth and well being of humanity. When you start, you will soon see it is addictive and you won't want to stop.
10. Good night.
You'll sleep better. Just knowing that you helped someone somewhere in your neighbourhood or in the world is going to help you have peace of mind and when you lay your head down at night to go to sleep you will have loving and caring thoughts of your great act, knowing that because of you, someone is smiling and happy.
