'Tis the season to be generous

As we wind down into the Xmas period it’s a great time to reflect on the achievements of the year, to celebrate success and to consider how we might approach the New Year.  Positive reflection is one of the best ways to lift our happiness levels and those of others.  Remember then to acknowledge others who have helped us get to where we are; our families, our team mates and our friends.


With the spirit of acknowledgement comes the spirit of generosity; both of these will lift happiness levels for ourselves and others.  So what can you be more generous with?

•    Time
•    Teaching
•    Sharing
•    Praise
•    Attention
•    Celebration of success
•    Wisdom
•    Mentoring
•    Play time
•    Leadership

Or simply your presence (keep away from that cell-phone or computer).
Now think who you will be more generous to – it’s up to you to make the difference that will change the lives of others.

Remember the law of reciprocity – what goes around comes around – or, if you like, karma.  Who do you need to be next year and how do you want to be remembered?  Start being that person now.
