If ‘getting’ is the key to your happiness, your key will open few doors. If ‘giving’ is your key to happiness, you will find few doors locked.

James Howe, 12/25/2009

Imagine 100’s of little successes every day.

If you simply begin to place a high personal value on giving, then every day you will find countless opportunities to enjoy big and small successes – at giving.

In fact, you really can’t fail at giving. Because in true giving, you expect nothing in return. (That would be trading, not giving.) And since in true giving you don’t expect anything (even thanks) from the recipient, the success of your giving doesn’t depend on the response you get. You receive personal value and happiness from the giving, itself.

If you do get a warm response… that’s just more happiness for you!
