Many of us when asked are we givers or takers, will answer “Oh yes, I am a giver”. But is it really so, or is it our ego that wants to believe it to be so…
Are you bringing your gifts to the world or are you looking for what you can get from the world?
This question opens up a huge difference in perspective as well as in our attitude and how we show up.
One comes from a place of openness, abundance and sharing, while the other comes from a place of tension, lack and self absorption. The energy is so different … and it is palpable.
All around us are people asking “What’s in it for me”? …
… When the real questions are “What can I bring to them?” “What are my talents and skills that I can offer?” “How can I share what I love to do?”
This thought came to my mind today as I recall when I was a new yoga teacher, how my attitude was that I needed to make a certain amount of money from my classes, or it wouldn’t be worthwhile.
Worthwhile to whom? To me of course… and my ego.
I had forgotten that I chose to teach because I love yoga and being a teacher. It is something I believe in and want to share with others. Its my gift to the world and my dharma or life purpose.
Whether I bring this to 4 people or 15, I impact them.
Real worth is measured by how much we express our unique selves, and how we can make a difference in the world.
So, whether you are wanting to teach a class, thinking about a career change or making a decision in your life, shift your perspective and questions! Let go of the fear of not having enough and open your heart to the abundance that is within you.
Experience the difference … and the results.
