The Story of the Greedy Giver

Someone may discover that the infrastructure in your business is weak, that you make less money than perceived, or that you’re a terrible speller. Whatever the case, it can be a humbling experience.

We all need to stop and consider that what others bring to the table may be their calling, their gift, their destiny. Accept it, let others fulfill their purpose just as you fulfill yours when you give. Don’t be a greedy giver, taking up all the blessings for yourself.

In life everyone needs to feel significant, like what they contribute means something special. News flash, you’re not the only person who can make a difference or get the job done. Don’t wait until it’s too late to ask for help. Give someone a chance to help you and reap the mutual benefits. Your life will be richer for it.

Remember, everybody needs somebody sometime…

  1. If you want to believe that you have a problem, that’s fine, but you listed a whole host of reasons why asking for help is problematic. These are real issues, if help was out here bubbling over just waiting for a reason to go into action, we wouldn’t have so many people who find themselves in dire positions with nowhere to turn. I speak from experience and while I spent most of my adult life being able to provide assistance, I spent my entire childhood needing assistance and the last 15 years of my adult life needing assistance. There were no talented, gifted people falling over themselves to assist me – just judgemental people who could care less. But hey, your viewpoint makes for a better article.

  2. This one of the best articles I’ve ever read! It’s like Deya has been planted on my shoulder observing my life. :) Thank you Deya for being you and helping others like you see who they really are. Acknowledgement is the first step in making a positive change.
