It’s Day 7 to your MAX POTENTIAL!
A parable by an unknown author: Once, there was a farmer who grew award-winning corn. Every year, he entered his corn in the state fair and won numerous awards and ribbons. One year, a newspaper reporter covered the event and interviewed the farmer.
“What do you do to grow such robust and healthy corn?” the reporter asked. The farmer replied, “Well, one thing I do is share the seeds with my neighbors.”
Continuing his questioning, the reporter asked, “Why do share your corn seeds with your neighbors? Aren’t your neighbors entering this competition with their corn?”
With confidence, the farmer said, “Maybe you weren’t aware, but the wind picks up pollen from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field. If my neighbors grow poor corn, cross-pollination would degrade the quality of my own corn. So, if I want to grow the best corn, then I must help my neighbors grow the best corn, too.”
The universe operates through dynamic exchange . . . giving and receiving are one of the aspects of the flow of energy in the universe. And in our willingness to give that which we seek, we keep the abundance of the universe circulating in our lives. And we realize that we get back the same measure of what we put forth.
Goodness breeds goodness: generosity brings about more generosity. Wherever you are in life today, you can make a profound difference in the lives of others.
So don’t give up on your creative ideas that can help others. Commit to keeping wealth circulating in your life by giving and receiving life’s most precious gifts: the gifts of caring, affection, appreciation, and love.
Willing to share your ideas and your blessings with others will manifest in the riches just like the farmer with award-winning corn.
The Secret to living is giving!
Max your potential question: How can you incorporate giving into your daily life?
