Giving creates a symbiotic relationship between you and the recipient. The more we give. The more excitement, energy and pleasure we derive from our lives.

is much sadness in the world, but there are also unlimited ways to make a positive difference. You can gain tremendous benefits from giving. Passion for a worthwhile cause helps you tap into your creativity. You only need so much as an individual to be happy.

The base of maslows pyramid starts with our core physiological needs: water, food, shelter, sleep, sex etc. The second level covers our security needs: protection from the elements, social order etc. The third level includes our social needs: love, family, relationships, work etc. The fourth level consists of our ego needs: achievement, reputation, responsibility, independence etc. Maslow originally placed self-actualization needs at the top level. These includes personal growth, self fulfillment and achieving personal potential.

WHAT CAN YOU GIVE?

Everyone has something to give. Things which you can give are: Love Laughter Knowledge Leadership Time Money Health Attention

Love

is the most powerful force. Unconditional love is so important. Love is not always easy. Making time for love. Expressing love.

It creates happiness. It helps people cope with grief, aids creativity and eliminates boundaries. It makes hard things easier. It helps you cope better with pain. It can defuse tense situations too.

One

of the best gifts you can give yourself and others is knowledge. By sharing knowledge, you become more valuable to your social networks and to the people you meet. The sole purpose of knowledge is to help find out what you, with all your heart, most love to do.

It means many things to many people. One persons strong leader is another persons dictator. True leadership, whether personal or corporate, makes a positive difference. Qualities to become leader:Overcome your greatest fears Solution-oriented Focus on important issues, not on urgent ones Spend time in building relationships. Create an enabling and fun environment. The best leaders are servants-wanting to serve and give.

Time

is your most precious commodity. The best gift you can ever gift is your time because you are giving them something that youll never get back. Managing your time well allows you to find the time to give or to give more. The exercise how are you spending you time? will help you examine how you manage your time.

Money is obviously a great thing to give, but if you are going to be a healthy giver of money, you will need to examine your feelings about it. And in order to have more to share, you will need to develop skills to manage your money more wisely. Money is neither bad nor good. It is often used for good(feeding your family, protecting others), but it can also be used for evil(as a means of control or an object of unhealthy obsession). One of the most lasting and valuable gifts you can give yourself is Money management skills.

One

of the best gift you can give people is your respect, displayed through active listening The chinese philosophy is to listen with the eyes, ears, heart, listen with undivided attention. Giving people space to express how they feel, and listening attentively to them, is a valuable form of giving.

TO WHOM SHOULD YOU GIVE?

You

can give to To yourself To your family To the community To non profit organizations To the planet

Charity begins at home. Start by loving yourself. It is not wrong to give to yourself. To look after others, you have to look after yourself first. Make a conscious effort to give daily to your family. It forms the foundation of your giving. Children hold the power to make our world better and our future bright and peaceful. The best gift we can give to our children is to teach them to give. We build heart fiber in our children by giving them the values and virtues that built a strong character.

Extend your giving to your community. Give to non profit social organizations. There is an incredible variety of options for giving. Give to the planet- it has been given to us in trust. We must take care of our environment to be able to pass onto or children what our ancestors gave us.

How, when, where and how much to give?

Give

with respect-show respect to all people, regardless of their social status, gender, age or religion. Give with humility-when you get an opportunity to give, do not hesitate. Give unconditionally- true giving is unconditional! Nature gives unconditionally. When your loving is unconditional, you receive intangible benefits.

The

short answer is . . . today. The reality is that you can give all times. No matter what or how much you give, when you give whole-heartedly and with good intentions you set in motion a powerful force. Giving in hardship- it makes easier to give when times are good. That is the power of giving for the giver.

There

are 3 areas that you need to evaluate before you can decide where you want to give. These areas are: Your emotions, values and motivations Your skills The other resources you have to give (time, connections etc.)

How

much can you give is related to your personal circumstances. Lets examine two of the gifts that most people offer: money and time. Craig OBrien, minister at a Baptist church in Vancouver, Canada, believes in tithinggiving 1/10 of his income. He says that we have to analyze how we spend the other 90% of our money if we want to maximize our positive impact on our society.

It

means increasing what you give by 1% each year until you reach 10%. We call it escalator because its easy, smooth, and your giving goes up. So if you give 2% last year, try 3% this year. You may find this so easy that you will start adding 2% a year until you reach your target. Youll be surprised at how generous you are, and how easy it is.

Little

giving is planned with two expectations. The first is monthly giving- a convenient way for donors to give. The principle behind monthly giving is that, you set aside 10% of your income as savings for your future. Then you deduct another 10% to be donated to good causes. You live on the rest. The process works at every income level. The second is the field of legacies or bequests, annuities, opening an advised fund at a community or public foundation.

Giving up non-essential items in our life can help us give more. You can work to give up some of the bad habits that stop your progress and dampen your giving capacity, such as watching too much TV, smoking, using drugs, or drinking too much. up non-essential items in our life can help us give more.
