Giving to others is the essence of a sufficiency mentality
You can give regardless of your financial situation and those who give to others seem to be financially successful.
Notice that the phrase is not: "Financially successful people give.”
Watch our workshop on giving
A sufficiency mindset will inspire you to give regardless of your income, whereas a scarcity mindset leads you to think you need to earn more before giving is possible. Consider the words of famous philanthropist Jon Huntsman:
“My wife and I have been giving to charity ever since we got married. After I graduated
from college, I was a gunnery officer in the Navy, making $320 each month. Out of that salary, I would tithe $32 and give another $50
to the Navy Relief Fund. As our income grew, so did our philanthropic giving. For almost 40 years now, we have been giving away large
sums of money.”
