This week’s post is a sister to last week’s. This week the suggestion is to give a little more than is expected. It can be a little more of intangibles, like service or attitude.
It contributes to your consciousness of abundance. If you are giving a head of lettuce from your garden to your neighbor, check over the heads and give them an especially nice one. It’s win win for both of you.
Once I was putting a deposit on a workshop. I had an extra $5. with me and put the requested deposit plus the $5. It will make it easier when I have to pay the remainder, I thought. As it turns out, they were swamped with deposits, more than they could accommodate.
They accepted anyone who paid in full and the rest were left to a lottery — except, because I had paid that little bit more than, I was accepted.
Think of it, those businesses that give you a little more than, in service or quality or products. You notice. It feels good to be the recipient.
Consider trying this for your own good. It just happens to be good for everyone. I think that is often the case. What is good for you is good for all involved.
Have you had any experiences with this?
