We tend to think that we’ll make a difference when we “get there.” This doesn’t work, since the giving actually causes the growing. If you wait until you get there, you never actually get there.
The same feeling of tightness that occurs for you when you are stretching to give $10 from your $100, stays with you when you are giving $100 of your $1,000. I can’t say what it is to give millions yet, but I can tell you that in the process of giving tens of thousands, it’s the same game with more zeroes.
Something happens when you stretch. The universe hates a void, and new opportunities present themselves to you. Not like winning the lottery, but more likely new opportunities to grow and expand your business that were not apparent before.
How do you get there? One step at a time.
The best tool I’ve found to support with the stretching and growing is gratitude. It’s easy to take for granted what you have. Electricity, hot, running water, flushing toilets. These simple gifts are actually luxuries in much of the world.
The way to continue to stretch is to stay in gratitude for what you have. You always get more of what you focus on. If you focus on lack, you get more lack. Why not celebrate your gifts and watch them grow and expand?
As you expand and remember who you are and how blessed you are, it becomes easier to adopt the habit of giving. Not easy, but easier.
I invite you to consider automating your giving. Start small-$5 per week, $20 per month, adds up to several hundred dollars per year. You may be educating a child or funding a fellow business woman’s dream in a developing nation by taking these small actions.
