IAM Group Ltd | Smallest Act of Kindness
With our changing economic times, people would always need something. The art of giving and satisfying other people’s needs may use more mastery than one can imagine. As many of us will say that we will only give when we have something more, then, we might not be able to give at all. The art of giving is not only fulfilling to the receiver. It can also be satisfying to the giver himself.
The following are the things IAM Group Limited has recognized as a factor in mastering the art of giving:
1. Give things.
This is the easiest way of charity and is somehow a basis in giving. In partnering to charities, your things may get to victims of floods and natural calamities to as far as Yokohama, Japan or Sumatra, Indonesia. Clean your home and clear out your closet of unwanted things. Give what you don’t use or need to charity. Your junk is someone else’s treasure.
2. Give of yourself.
Make someone feel loved, special and appreciated with a visit, phone call, email, text or card. Give a handmade gift. Give praise, gratitude and appreciation. This creates heart-to-heart connections. In some cases, this may be the best gift of a parent to the children.
3. Give good advice.
Ask the question, “Do you want advice or to you want me to listen.” If needed and wanted advice can be life-saving. Shared insights and wisdom is a precious gift.
4. Give encouragement.
When people are filled with doubt and fear they lack courage. When you inspire and motivate someone to act on their dreams, it can be life changing. You are making the world a better place.
5. Give forgiveness.
Forgiveness offers healing to family, friends, coworkers and neighbors. Forgive yourself and others in spite of memories of unlovable times. Drop the story of what they did and what you did and the meaning you have given it.
6. Give money.
Giving stuff is easy. We usually don’t need or want it. But almost everyone likes to hang on to their money. Giving away money is more difficult because it means less for you. Give money because others need it. Give money because we’re dependent on one another.
7. Give An Act Of Kindness.
Kindness is the easiest and most abundant gift we have to give away. Buy Girl Scout cookies, always open the door for the person behind you, return your grocery cart, make cookies for your neighbor. The list is endless. Kindness brings joy to the giver, receiver and anyone witnessing the act!
8. Give love.
It’s easy to love those who love us back. Challenge yourself to give love to those who deserve it the least. Make your love unconditional. Make the world a more loving place. Everyone will reap the benefits
The Art of Giving is something we can do everyday to different kinds of people. IAM Group Ltd., with our partner charity groups from around the world encourages you to give something out of yourself and feel the satisfying gratitude of it.
