“Be happy with what you have and are, be generous with both, and you will not have to hunt for happiness.”--William Gladstone

One of the means of being happy is to be always in generous mindset. By definition, generous can be explained as “freely giving or sharing money, time, knowledge or any valuable resources of yours to others”.
Being in generous mindset brings not only happiness to self; it improves the quality of relationship with others and to the world. In today’s liberalized economy, most of us are leading a better life than our parents, even then, the mind is filled with POVERTY mentality only. Due to this mindset, life is looked upon with insecure and fearful. The fear can be wealth erosion or fear can be personal efficiency loss or can be lost of jobs or personal value.

On relationship front, most of the personal disappointments happen due to lack of a generous mindset only. In a family, the split happens between blood relationship over family assets is mainly due to lack of abundance mentality or lack of generous attitude.
But by nature, more you give yourself to others, you get more energy or resources to take care of yourself. With generous attitude, life will be perceived as opportunities. When does one behave as generous? Only when he feels that he has sufficient enough to give it others or when feels that he has the capability to acquire more when required. This abundance feeling brings generous attitude.

You can experiment this yourself. For example, if you use to give Rs x as tips to waiter at restaurants, next time you experiment by giving Rs 2X; experience the feeling you are undergoing and look the reality of wealth erosion fear. Similarly experiment by spending 2X time with your family members than usual; experience the feeling you are undergoing and look the reality of work productivity fear.

The more give of yourself to others either in terms of time, energy, knowledge, money, you will get all resources to be more productive, more energetic and more knowledgeable and of course you know how to attract the money.Be generous in giving your resources to others and you will attract good things in life!
