The Power of GIVING

MOST people prefer to receive than to give due to the inherent nature of man to be selfish, often thinking of his own needs before those of others. But there is a lot to be gained and stand to benefit in giving instead of receiving.    And giving should not be restricted to money or material items for that's what most of us think of when it comes to giving. Giving includes the giving of time, kindness, ideas, advice, attention, skills, hope, love, touch, and much more. Besides the impact that giving makes in the lives of others, it can benefit the giver also, with benefits ranging from the practical, such as improved health and professional connections, to the intangible, like hope and a sense of connection with others.   Your simple act of giving can improve the lives of others as well as your health and sense of wellbeing, your relationships, your company's bottom line, your happiness and many more. It can give a sense of purpose and fulfilment that you don't get from receiving. The man who gave away billions   Virtually all successful-and certainly all happy people-have discovered the secrets of giving. Bill Gates, one of the richest men in the world gave away a large chunk of his fortune to charity and he is a happier man for it. He said he did not need all that money and it would end up creating problems for his children in future. You might not have Gates' billions but this festive season, you can give a little of what you have, thereby putting a smile on the face of somebody. And getting a lot of joy, happiness and a sense of fulfilment in the process. Besides, givers never lack and the hand that gives is always on top.
