The quote above by Winston Churchill speaks volumes and I would like to dig a little deeper by telling you a little story.
Yesterday, I got up from my desk on a bathroom run and as I opened the exit door toward the restroom there was a wad of singles on the floor. Now of course my first instinct was to pocket the money but then I said what if it was me and I lost my money, I would hope someone would ask around before they pocket the funds.
Although the crisp dollars could have come in handy I went back into my office and asked if anyone had dropped some singles. It turns out one of the guy's in my office had dropped the money when he changed his pants.
Now see, I work in a small office and we are the only office on the floor and there are not a lot of people coming in and out of our office. We had construction guys here that left right before I found the money so it was a toss-up between them and someone in the office. I decided to ask around the office first because maybe the person who lost the money really needed it for something, maybe that money was for them to get home, it could have been for anything.
I mentioned to some friends what had happened and they said they would have kept the money without asking. Well yes, that is every one's first instinct and it would have been different if I found the money when stepping onto the elevator or just walking down the street but that wasn't the case.
I truly believe that what we give we shall receive and me giving that money back to the person it belonged to will only cause more good to come into my life.
Do you truly believe what you give you will receive?
