“Always give without remembering. Always receive without forgetting.”
– Brian Tracy, motivational speaker and author
Generosity and gratitude are powerful forces. They help us live happier lives. Unfortunately, the wisdom of Brian Tracy’s quote is not always heeded, and people often do what I call “keeping score.” Put simply, this means that “I’ll give you one if you give me one.”
Under this “giving must equal getting” rule, it’s easy for a person to feel that the equation is unbalanced. The process of giving and receiving grinds to a halt, with potential anger and resentment as a result.
Answer the following questions:
How will you operate from a place of abundance and generosity today and in the future?
How will you go out of your way to acknowledge the small and large acts of kindness people offer today and in the future?
