A few months ago I read this: "Giving precedes receiving and my gifts to others precede God's gifts to me." Made sense to me but I didn't fully get the implication. Today, it became clear.
Luke 6:38 says: "Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full--pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back." I believe the implication for the #DreamChaser is that if you want others to open big doors for YOU, you need to open big doors for SOMEONE ELSE. If you WANT big time, money, resources, etc. in support of YOUR dream, you have to GIVE big time, money, resources, etc. in support of SOMEONE ELSE'S dream.
Practically speaking, if you want to start and run a successful, growing business, whose business are you helping to grow? If you want your message to go national, who's national message are you helping to advance? If you want to move up the corporate ladder, who are you mentoring so they can move up? Believe your cause can help make the world a better place? What causes are you actively involved in that also seek to make the world a better place?
More big picture.
