If you’re looking for a quick remedy to improve your life, look no further than generosity.
Generosity changes your orientation.
It opens up your purview to think instead about how to be useful, valuable, or of service to other people.
(Which is not necessarily the opposite of selfishness, properly defined. Nor am I advocating for selfless altruism. But that’s for another blog post.)
Being radically generous is a great way to restore yourself. To freely give of the best that is within you to the loved ones in your life – and even pure strangers – without any expectation of repayment.
But it’s not a one-sided transaction. Because in order to give, someone must also receive.
Be radically generous with the people in your life, with your resources, with your gifts and talents, and your time. If for no other reason than to improve your own happiness and quality of life (and the others around you, too).
