The Giving Machine
My colleagues and I are exploring a completely new business model.
Super high tech.
It’s called giving.
Over the past few weeks, we have been giving increasing amounts to various causes/people, and noticing the almost immediate increase in our business.
The increase in business is nice.
What’s even nicer is the effect on our psyche.
Giving is one of the most irrational things someone can do.
Or perhaps I should say, transrational.
Understanding giving requires going beyond the rational.
Funny thing is, I don’t feel I’ve gotten there yet.
I don’t quite understand how it works or what we’re doing.
In some cases, the giving feels like a stretch.
In other cases, it’s a bit easier.
But giving appears the be the channel to making magic happen.
I’m blown away by what’s going on in my businesses.
I’m surprised by the effects experienced by my coaching clients.
I’m taken aback by how much happier I feel on a day-to-day basis.
So let’s bring this back to you — although this entire message has been about you anyway.
What are you doing right now to harness that power?
Do you give on a regular basis?
Are you afraid of giving? Why or why not?
Do you know people who give freely on a regular basis? What would happen if you did one-minute modeling with them?
You want a better life. Give more.
You want more business. Give more.
Quite honestly, there’s no better ROI on the market than giving.
