I was asked the question is it better to “give or receive”?

So let me answer that question with a simple life equation which I’ve used throughout my years of coaching.

Solve the equation:

There are 10 people who are in desperate need of food, I’m also hungry but not desperate. I have 5 pieces of meat, 5 potatoes, 5 avocados & 2 litres of water.¬† If I divide the meat, potatoes & avocados by 2, the water by 10 and distribute equally amongst the 10 people, how many people will be thankful for the distribution of food and water?

Is it 10? Or is it more?

For the sake of argument let’s say there are 2 of everyone except the one who received food & water.
Now add the person who received the food & water + 2 parents + 2 grandparents + 2 siblings + 2 aunts + 2 uncles + 2 cousins + 2 friends x 10 = ???

Answer: 150 people

The moral of the story is it’s “better to give than receive” because giving always reaches further than the initial person who received which empowers and encourages each recipient to give as well.

I like to call it “spreading love” and the joy I get from helping others is “priceless”!!!
