You know what I REALLY love?
People who share their ideas.
Collaboration over competition.
Abundance instead of scarcity.
I know that the more you give, the more comes back to you. Giving makes the world a better place. And in turn it will make you feel good too. I think giving back is one of life’s greatest pleasures. Because when we give someone else their needs or wants. A well is created. Which deepens and creates more happiness for everyone involved.
Give To Others
Giving to others not only helps them but also provides us with some sense of joy. Joy that can’t be obtained through any other means. It doesn’t matter how big or small your gesture may seem. Every little bit counts especially if what you’re doing comes from the heart. Whether it’s donating an old shirt that no longer fits on clearance racks at clothing stores. Stores where they’ll sell clothes to people who need them. Or just cooking dinner for friends after work instead of going out. I believe that by giving, you’ll leave yourself open to receive as well! In my life I have seen multiple instances of this. For example, when I was a struggling food blogger. (let’s face it, I was always a struggling food blogger – more on this story to come) I had a group of fellow IG/bloggers who somehow scooped me up and took me under their wings.
I can’t even TELL you what that meant to me. To have a group of women willing to give advice, share what was working, and collaborate. And include little ol’ me in their events, lunches, and giveaways. It was so big for me at the time. And I met some of the most amazing women through my blogging days.????
These women knew the secret – they wouldn’t lose a thing by sharing with others. They would actually gain more. My success wouldn’t dampen theirs.
There is ENOUGH FOR EVERYONE. More than enough. ????
I now make it a point to surround myself with people like this. People who know that by helping you succeed it doesn’t hurt them at all.
I Used To Think
I used to think I was the only one who saw things this way. That by helping someone succeed, they were not hurting themselves in some kind of weird competition. But after a few conversations with people like that, I now make it a point to surround myself with them! They’re not just great at what they do. We worked well together because we understood each other’s motives so intimately.
Don’t hold onto your ideas – share them. Don’t think because someone else did it that you can’t. Once upon a time, there was an idea that had been lying dormant for so long. It didn’t know what to do with itself because it felt as if no one would find value in its existence. Until finally someone gave this little idea the chance and listened carefully while they shared their own ideas too! Don’t hold onto your ideas! Share them instead of keeping everything bottled up inside you. Where it becomes stale and useless over time. Don’t think just because someone else has done something before means that you can never try anything new yourself. Don’t be afraid to take risks or tackle difficult projects head on with all your might!
Your voice is unique. Your perspective and story need to be heard.
Think about it – a closed hand cannot accept more. Open that baby up and let the abundance FLOW. ????
Abundance instead of Scarcity.
