You often hear that you should give more than receive. Or if you give your heart, you will get more back tenfold. Giver’s gain. There are more sayings, but they all have the same theme. You want to give of yourself if you want to feel good or do good.
Although these sayings are true, they miss one main element. You must be willing to receive the love in return. If you don’t want to open your heart to receiving what comes back to you, then, you will feel like you give and give and give and get nothing in return. You will be frustrated and unsure of yourself. That’s why you need to learn to receive first before you have to give. You have to allow yourself to be open to what surrounds you.
“No matter how many material things we manage to ambitiously accumulate by great financial success, there is a portion of our heart that can only be filled with the love that comes from relationships,” said Terry Gogna in his book, Get the Power to Change Your Life. “If it remains empty, it will become an emotional hole in our heart.” Many financially successful people have turned to drugs or alcohol to fill that void. Developing reciprocal loving relationships is a high level of achievement, he added.
In Make More Work Less, Fong Chua explains that to be successful in whatever you wish, you have to surround yourself with team members who will give you the love and support you need to continue on your journey.
How Do You Open Your Heart to Receive?
First, you have to want to be open. When you decide you are ready to be open, you will find it easier to do. Second, you should embark on a personal journey, such as Breakthrough Performance Workshop, a program by Breakthrough Voice Seminars. Then, follow these steps.
Step 1. Host a party with family or friends.
Step 2. Have them sit in a seat angled like a stage.
Step 3. Sing one of your favorite songs for your family and friends. Use the music as an accompaniment.
Step 4. When you finish, stand in front of them with your arms at your sides. Stay for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
Step 5. Let them applaud your song.
Step 6. Accept the applause with grace.
At first, this process will seem silly or difficult. But, after a few times, accepting the applause will become easier and be part of who you are. To make this process natural, you need to accept love and applause for at least 66 days for it to become a habit, according to Gary Keller, co-founder of Keller Williams Realty and author of The ONE Thing.
