Givers Who Rise To The Top

Posted on April 22nd, 2014

“Ultimately, the biggest difference between the givers who rise to the top and those who sink to the bottom is the boundaries that they set.

Givers who burn out consistently put the interests of others ahead of their own, sacrificing their energy and time and undermining their ability to give in the long run.

Those who maintain success are careful to balance concern for others with their own interests. Instead of helping all of the people all of the time, they help many of the people much of the time. They’re careful to give in ways that are high benefit to others but not exceedingly costly to themselves.”
