The Generosity Paradox

On our recent Deep Impact Safari the infinite ripples of impact created through our fellow adventure’s generosity, was I can only say, mind-blowing.

Living examples of the Generosity Paradox, where their generosity was and is still being multiplied in ways we could never have imagined; reaching girls in remote parts of Kenya, in support of the End Period Poverty Campaign, which means girls can attend school, educating children from distressed backgrounds even beyond the Kipchamgaa Children’s Home of which I am a Patron.

Gifts, that keep on giving.

What was so evident about this was that the volume of impact was not built on effort, but ignited by a simple text message and fuelled a sense of joy which created an endless continuum of unexpected magic and effortless creation.

Generosity in and of itself does not mean giving money, time, or yourself away.

Generosity is simply an energy, and when that energy fuels your thoughts, words, actions, and ultimately your destiny, it creates breathtaking ripples of impact that are often magical, and leave you in awe and wonder of just how you do it.

We are often taught that we must be selfless.

However first you have to be must be selfish, to become selfless.

It’s not until you invest in you, and be authentic and honest with yourself about what fuels your thoughts and actions, what motivates you, own your vices, and surrender your burdens that you can be truly generous without need or expectation.

Being generous to yourself can have a significant impact on your life in several ways.

1. Improving self-esteem: When you are generous to yourself, you are loving and compassionate to yourself, which supports the improvement of self-esteem and self-worth, which often leads to a more positive outlook on life.

2. Reducing stress: When you prioritise your own needs and take care of yourself, you are better equipped to handle stress and challenges that come your way. This can lead to a more balanced and fulfilling life.

3. Encouraging self-care: Being generous to yourself can also encourage you to practice self-care. This can include activities such as getting enough sleep, eating healthy foods, exercising regularly, and taking time for yourself to relax and recharge.

Increasing happiness: When you are generous to yourself, you are taking steps to ensure your own happiness and well-being. This can lead to a more positive and joyful outlook, enhancing your relationships, business, and life.

A rather profitable investment you have to admit.

Following the signs.

Witnessing the unlimited potential of generosity, ignited the creation of my 8-week GENEROSITY Meditation, Breathwork, and Coaching Course to support you to create big magic, in the knowing that the deeper you go the higher you fly.

One of the last requests of my dear friend Olivier, who passed over last year was ‘Be Generous and Be Kind’

When I was sharing the creation of this program with his beautiful wife Nicole she said ‘You must tell them that what I’ve learned in the most challenging time of my life is, "When one is generous, we must have no expectations."

"Generosity does not always come back to you when you expect it, it often comes when it’s most needed, and not in the way we expect, but in the ways that matter the most."

A big thank you to Olivier, this is a beautiful example of how the essence of your generosity keeps on giving, not at all in the way we wanted, or expected but definitely in a way that matters.

Let us, individually and collectively make this year matter!

Let us make this year, your breakthrough year.
