Thought-full Thursday: Generosity

Every Thursday, we provide you with a thoughtful way to coach yourself – something all leaders need to do. So take five – enjoy the inspirational quotes  and reflect on the questions that follow. 

“On the whole, resources are likely to come to you in greater abundance when you are generous and inclusive and engage people in your passion for life. When you are oriented to abundance, you care less about being in control, and you take more risks. You may give away short-term profits in pursuit of a bigger dream; you may take a long view without being able to predict the outcome. In the universe of possibility, you set the context and let life unfold.”

~ Rosamund Stone Zander and Benjamin Zander, “The Art of Possibility”
