If you think 'if I had more, I'd do more' you've got it backwards.

How many times have you played the game 'If Only'? If only you had more money, if only you had more time, if only you had more yadda-yadda-yadda and blah-blah-blah... Then, oh boy, the world had better watch out!

Then that game is followed by the game of 'But...' and you crawl back into the world of disappointment and excuses. Right?

Oh, of course, I know YOU don't play those games... I'm just sayin' ... y'know... those games get played.

Buuuuuuut... if you ever slipped and were to play those games... I'd point out that 'having more' has this funny way of intensifying old habits, and turning them into much bigger habits... So 'doing more' ends up very different from the 'doing more' you thought you'd do 'if only...'

The funny thing about Life is that it gives back what you give out. It waits for you, rather than pays you forward, hoping you'll give back. That's what 'give and you will receive' is all about.

You have to give first.

And you have to give good stuff. Holding out, and giving out bad stuff first, only results in bad stuff coming back.

The more VALUE you GIVE, the more REWARDS you GET.

So when you're dreaming about what you want, just ask yourself, 'what will I give so that I can receive this?'

Then give it all you've got.

Keep the light on!
(So Life knows where to send the rewards)
