That which we persist in doing becomes easier, not that the task itself becomes easier, but that our ability to perform it has improved. Ralph Waldo Emerson
While giving may be simple, it’s not easy.
- It requires effort.
Giving requires something from you. This thing you have (money, time, energy, love, etc) is in you, and there it stays until you DO something.
- It requires risk.
You might give the wrong thing. You might look stupid. You might be the only person who gives. You might be taken advantage of.
For these reasons, it’s easier not to give. But with practice, giving doesn’t feel like as much effort. With practice, you learn how to give better. With practice, you discover that you don’t look stupid and you don’t get taken advantage of as often as you’re afraid you will.
Give, because you’ll get better with practice, and getting good at giving will improve every area of your life.
