Give and it shall be given unto you…
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you …
Whatsoever a man sows, the same he shall reap…
The more you give the more you get…
Cast your bread upon the waters, for you will find it after many days…
All these are popular sayings most of us know. Even though these are verses from the bible, most non-Christians are also familiar with these quotes and others know them in other forms.
Some people are good givers, yet they do not receive. Others treat people very well, yet they are mostly treated unfairly. People have given so much that, they no more believe in any of these.
The first time I came in contact with the law of GET, I felt like putting the book down because it was the opposite of what I knew! But as I read on, I realized it was totally true. Not being conscious of the law of GET is like sowing and never returning to the land to reap when it’s time for harvest. …it’s like casting your bread upon the waters and saying “Oh that’s not my bread” whenever it comes to you in other forms. …it’s like treating others good and expecting people to treat you anyhow because after all, humans will always be humans.
The law of GET
So what is the law of GET? I might put this in my own words but well… this is how I took it.
The law of get suggests that you open up for receiving. It says that you deserve better and should always expect to receive from God (the universe as some people know it). The law of get goes hand in hand with the law of GIVE (what we are all so familiar with).
From experience, there are two types of people who never receive even after giving. These are:
1. the “I’m too proud to beg”
Don’t get me wrong. Expecting isn’t begging. You expect God to give you money but you don’t even smile to anyone. You expect the universe to send you helpers but you don’t even know how to market your skills. You expect someone to send you money but they don’t even know you have PayPal.
I remember when I shared my details on social media for people to send me gifts in the form of BTC, ether, bank deposit etc. Some people felt I was so broke and that it was embarrassing sharing all those details. People sent me a personal message warning me about hackers, blah blah… Mind you, these are details meant to be shared with anyone who wants to send you money.
You expect to be rich but you’re too proud to try and convince someone to buy your product. You always say: I don’t care if you won’t buy. It’s the best, the best sells itself! No!! you are wrong! You have to be ready to receive!
2. the “I’m not good enough”
Then there are those who think they deserve average or less. They are ready to accept peanuts for their services because they feel they won’t get a job if they don’t accept that. They keep attracting people who want to pay peanuts and they remain broke. Such people may also settle for anyone in a relationship because they are too scared to wait for what they really deserve. They are content with the average.
There are those who give and completely forget about receiving. When a job offer comes with a bigger pay, they feel bad leaving their old job because after all they really don’t need that big pay, they’re ok with what they have, why leave for a whole new different experience?
You need to have to Give
You need to get in order to give, and you need to give to get more! No matter how little you have, be liberal… once you’ve been liberal, be receptive. Believe that you will receive, be expectant, be open to opportunities, be prepared for opportunity. Be aware of the law of GET!
