In order to understand this concept of give it away, you have to live undeservedly.Dr. Tyler Schwanz
- Nothing that we own today will remain ours forever.
- Our default is to enter each environment wondering, “What am I going to get out of this?” rather than “What can I give to this?”
- We tend to be greedy not only with our possessions but also with our compliments and encouragement.
- It is easier to give something away when we choose to consider it a gift.
- Giving it away is so much more fun than keeping it for ourselves.
- If we want our lives to be characterized by generosity, we shouldn’t wait until the end of our lives to finally become generous.
- Contemplate what you would give away today if you knew you would not be here tomorrow.
- Give away the very next item you normally would choose to sell.
- Commit to the 24-Hour Rule by sharing each encouraging thought within 24 hours.
