OPERATION MOTIVATION: Position Yourself to Receive by Giving

'Twas the week after Christmas, and the complaints were rolling in. While some people were complaining about what they got, others were griping about what they didn't: I can't believe that's all they got me or I can't believe they didn't get me anything (whoever "they" are). And the end result is that we're deleting them from our social networking sites, writing them out of our will, and vowing to never attend another family reunion, right?

Does any of this sound familiar? Is it you?

Although Christmas is supposed to be a time for giving, it can bring about hurt feelings and resentment when someone doesn't live up to another person's expectations in the giving department. Secretaries resent executives when they don't get the $1,000 bonus and Employee of the Month parking space they were expecting this year. Grown children stop speaking to parents (until next Christmas) when they don't receive everything they asked Santa to bring. And extended family vow to never come to another family holiday party until Aunt Suzie learns how to coordinate a gift drive to cover the things they don't get from all the social services agencies they signed up with.

These scenarios may sound extreme, but familiar at the same time. And far too often, the people who complain the most about what they don't receive are the ones who give the least. The Law of Attraction states that like attracts like. So even if you're a giver who finds yourself wanting to receive more, take a minute to check your giving. Maybe you're not giving enough of what you want to receive. If you want love, give it. If you want better friendships, be a better friend. If you want others to support your business, support theirs.

As you continue to accumulate wealth to grow and live your millionaire lifestyles, position yourself to receive by giving. Stay motivated for the task at hand. It may not be returned from the person or in the same way that you expect it to, but it does come back.
