How giving helps you grow your business

“Tis better to give than receive.” How often have we heard that, especially at this time of year. I remember the first time I heard it. When I was six years old, it was almost Christmas when I was helping my mum in the laundry folding clothes. We had the discussion about being grateful for any present I received, whether I liked it or not, then the old chestnut came up; “and of course, Wendy, this time of year isn’t about getting, it’s about giving.” Being a typical, self-centered six year old, I didn’t quite understand what she meant, but I knew how she wanted me to behave on Christmas morning! Roll forward many years, and I have a very similar discussion with my clients about ‘Business Karma”.

Push Fear To One Side & Grow Your Business – Thrive! TV Tips

Your Action: Take some time to reflect on your goal, what you want to achieve. Feel it, and consider what might be holding you back. What fear is stopping you. It’s probably that thought that keeps popping into your head when you think about the change. Once you can name a fear, then you can work with it. Each time you think that thought, observe it, and then push it to one side. Accept that it is your primitive brain wanting to protect you. Then choose a thought that is more supportive.
