One of the secrets to success is giving, not taking. Research done by Wharton Professor Adam Grant suggests that some of the most successful people (not just in business) are in fact classic “givers”. They are people who genuinely try to help those around them. The help does not just come in the form of finances but also in taking an interest in sharing information and being willing to assist others in their endeavors as well.
We need to understand that a gracious attitude is needed to be successful. If all you do is take, then you are self-absorbed. On the other hand if you give, share, or help others get ahead, then I believe you will be happier and life will look brighter to you. We should really make an effort to comprehend the principle of being generous. Don’t just expect people to give to you because they have something, but because they are sincerely concerned about you. So many people today are takers and think only of themselves, without any care for others. Givers are more successful than takers, so which are you?
