I have never met a giver who was not a happy person because giving is like a seed. Whatever you give will grow and come back to you as long as you plant in good soil.
Many people wonder why they don’t have a harvest of good relationships or why no one ever gives them anything; quite frankly it’s because they don’t give anything back (and you should not give expecting to receive).
Giving is important because it gives you a sense of achievement. You are giving back to the community. We all benefit from everyone else and I think it is important that we learn to be givers. Giving also shows that you have the correct mind-set because that seed you invest in someone causes him or her to be generous, and propagates a chain reaction. I don’t believe there has ever been a monument erected to a taker, they are erected to givers. If you ever want to be a successful leader you need to give without any strings attached. Don’t give and then hold it against people it is very controlling.
When you give, give from the heart.
