Have you ever met one of those people who just always give? They give and give as though that’s all they care about.
My wife is like this. Regardless of how tired she is, or how much she’s already given, or how busy she is, OR how late it is, she is always giving. Giving to our children, giving to me, giving to her friends, giving to the church, and even giving to people that she doesn’t even know.
There are lots of stories of these kinds of people, like this, and this, and this, and countless others. These people seem to have a particular mindset – I call it Abundance Mentality. It’s as though they feel like there’s this undiminishable reserve that there’s always enough to give. Always.
I contrast that to the far more frequently encountered Scarcity Mentality. Here we feel like we’ve got no more to give, or that we didn’t have enough to start with, or that we’re too busy/tired and we’ll give tomorrow.
The key thing to realize is this. This is not a difference in the availability of resources. It’s a difference of perspective. It’s another illustration of how we can control life, simply by choosing to perceive it differently… of how perception truly does shape reality.
So, do you know someone with Abundance Mentality? if so, please share, so that we may all be inspired by their stories, that perhaps we can all give a little bit more.
