There’s an old, old saying that goes “what goes around, comes around.” and many others of the same sentiment from all corners of the world. And while some people may appear to be on the receiving end a lot more than the giving end, by and large, this is so very true.
There is a motto in my business networking group that goes “Giver’s Gain” if you give a lot of business referrals to others, you will also receive more business referrals. And the evidence for that stacks up in their statistics. Although, it doesn’t necessarily come from the person you gave the referral to.
This week in the Masterkeys, we talked about the very same thing. Give more, get more. If you want to have a friend, first of all be a friend. If you want love, give love. Don’t say, ‘when I have money I’ll donate to my favourite charities.’ Give now, because the laws of giving and receiving are always present. Here’s the Law of Giving and Receiving, which should be read daily:
(I always start by saying “I promise to keep these 4 promises”)
Wherever I go I bring a gift. I may bring a compliment, prayer, trinket, flower, but I promise I will give something to every person I encounter.
I promise to be a grateful receiver of the gifts that surround me; notice nature, kindness, smiles and compliments, which I gladly receive with a thank you.
I promise to give the hope for joy, affluence, kindness and love, consciously with every encounter, regardless of the brevity.
I promise to give without the expectation of reciprocity fromthe channels I enhance because I know I am in the dynamic flow of giving and receiving.
Ends. (I always keep my promises, signed)
