Being a Giving –Person
If you focus on the “I”, and the me, then you truly are not a giving person, no matter how much you may do for others. A truly giving person gives of themselves freely, without hesitation with all of there heart.
When you want to help someone, let it not be I can do this, but I need that. Let it be what can I do for you, when can we get this done; then just go out there a do it.

I enjoy helping others not for me, because I am genuinely interested in your happiness, your accomplishment and your joy; this is what makes me “tick” this is what puts a smile on my face and enlightens my heart.
Our religious books whether the Bible, or the Koran they all mention to help other but not for selfish gain. The sad part of life is that most people do for others because of some person gain; that is just not the way it is suppose to be.
Long before families started living so darn far away, and people crowded neighborhoods which over time they started to lose that closeness; before that time everyone helped one another out. They were always a phone call away, back then a shout away; either way they were there for you, genuinely!
So look beyond yourself today, do you do the things you do for others from the heart or is it for the gain. If your looking to gain something from your actions, then let it be said loud and clear that you are NOT a giving-person…………….As many professionals will tell you there is no “I” in team.
