Live generously

So many people fight, claw, strive to gain advantage over others. Yet it is far more powerful to give advantage than to take it.

If you want to live a sad, pitiful life, be stingy, greedy, arrogant and rude. If you wish instead to live a bountiful, rich, abundant life, be generous every opportunity you get.

When your aim is to take and hoard, you’ll encounter strident resistance at every turn. Yet when you sincerely seek to give, people from all corners of life will rush to support you.

Whatever is acquired through deception and exploitation is quickly lost to those who practice even greater deception. What you gain by giving, by generosity, stays with you always.

You don’t have to give away a lot of stuff to be generous. The power of generosity comes when you seek to do what’s best for others as well as what’s right for yourself.

Generosity is understanding that the value inside you grows exponentially when you share it with others. Live generously, in every area of life, and you live richly.
