What Can Giving Do For Your Wealth Plan?

A persons feelings’ is like a cold – once it starts, no matter how much you try to resist being ill, it will only end once you go through the necessary pain. Selfishness is such a feeling, born out of insecurity from unmet needs, it results in fear of giving anything away, as when you give you are reminded of your own lack of control over your life.

Thankfully, there is a powerful antidote to selfishness – giving and in this article I am dishing out some of my favorite reasons why you should give. If you follow my advice, your life will be at least a zillion (not an actual statistic – but whose checking!) times more interesting.

Sometimes, the only way to get more sweets is to share the ones you already have

Giving helps you build self confidence in dealing with your own problems as the inherent fear of losing control slowly diminishes over time. People spend more time worrying about money, then implementing strategies that actually facilitate wealth building. To build wealth for yourself, you need the power over your money to make decisions that sometimes maybe risky and confidence to achieve your goals without fear of losing control which in more times than not, is the greatest hindrance to building wealth.

Therefore, the more you give, the more control you take back – thereby taking worry from money by building confidence that you can achieve anything you set out to do.

Fear cripples and prevents you from being the best version of yourself

Giving kills the fear of lack geared towards self-preservation and fear of depleted resources, also known as the “bag lady syndrome”, which drives you to horde in fear of being poor so much so, that it plaques your waking thoughts and as a result, drives you to make very very poor investment choices.

Therefore, do not misplace your fear. Instead, let it be the greatest motivator, rather than a handicap. Let it serve as a strength that drives you to increase and multiply your wealth, and all the more give because you can.

Have you ever heard of an artist, who paints and never lets the world get inspired from their work?

Giving is strength and selfishness is weakness. God gives us things – money, talent, time – and we have to make the choice of what to do with those things. Giving does not only encompass financial resources. We have an abundance of unexpected resources that we can tap into and share with others.

But in the meantime, here’s a tip you can use right away. You’ll have vastly improved your current state and inched closer to freeing yourself in just 20 minutes by following these two simple steps:

a. Take out your notebook and jot down all the things you things you think you want and absolutely need.

b. Take out everything you may consider as a ‘want’ by digging deep and ask yourself if you really need/want those things.

By doing so, you will find out that: all those things that you could not live without were actually adding unnecessary stress to your life, your life will be much simpler/happier and you will learn the great skill of compromise.

Happy Giving!
