The generosity boomerang
Yesterday by Seth Godin
“Here’s conventional wisdom:
Success makes you happy. Happiness permits you to be generous.
In fact, it actually works like this:
Generosity makes you happy. Happy people are more likely to be successful”
I love it! So when you’re feeling overwhelmed by hurdles, try to think of ways to be generous; here’s a few ways that I like to be generous:
- Hand a stranger a coin as they are fumbling for parking meter money
- Hold a door open for a mum with a pram
- Actually speak to the cashier
- Understand when your neighbour is making some noise, just a little too early on Sunday morning
Have a great day!
