How can you be a boss?

Are you wondering what type of boss I'm talking about?

Yes Boss,I mean Boss.

You can be a boss in every spheres of life. And this is only possible through Giving.

A giver is the world's best boss.

In this article, I'll be giving instances whereby giving pays off and made the giver a Boss.

Instance One

We were told a story in church today the story of two beggars.

This two beggars set up on a journey, while they moved, they begged from post to post. They got to a place and begged for alms, they were both given 50 coins each, they thanked them and left on their journey.

While they were going they also met some beggers that were even worse than them, Beggar A gave out 25 coins to the beggars. Beggar B mocked and abused him for giving the beggars of the little money they were given.

Beggar A told him it's better to give than to receive.

They continued on their journey, they got to a particular place, they met some men, went close to them and begged for alms, the men looked at them and gave them 5 wraps of #100 naira notes, while they were putting it in their pockets they noticed that Beggar B's pocket got full at the fifth wrap while Beggar A's pocket wasn't full yet, the gave him 2 more wraps to make 7wraps. Beggar B asked for more but they told him to go since his pocket was full.

They kept journeying, Beggar A kept giving out of his money while Beggar B refused to give out saying he doesn't want to be left stranded when they got to where they were going to.

They continued this way until they got to a wealthy man's house, he invited them into his house, gave then food and drinks. When they were leaving he brought out a big bag full of #1000 naira notes and gave then the instruction to put as much as possible in their pockets only, they are not to hold any or put any in any other place or bag.

Beggar A smiled and started putting it in his pocket. Since he had empty his pocket by giving out, he was able to pack as much as possible wraps of #1000 naira, while Beggar B couldn't pick much because his pocket was already full.

Beggar A left the place a happy and rich man and never had cause to beg again. Beggar A became a big and famous person, he had lots of businesses and became an employer of labour. Beggar B became one of his worker. He learnt his lesson the hard way. Had I known became his daily song.

Instance Two

Mr K, was a very wealthy man, he had lots of wealth to his name, while Mr R was a very wretched person, he had nothing, he was always seen outside Mr K's House eating the crumbs from his table which had been dropped in the waste bin.

This continued for many years.

Mr K would see Mr R sitting outside his door daily but refused to help him in any form.

Then one day, Mr R was sick and didn't come to sit outside the gate.

Something unusual happened, the housewas invaded overnight, what Mr K failed to know was that whenever they plan to come, Mr R will be be outside the gate, he would plead with them to go back and their mission would be aborted.

When they entered, they told him they chose to come that day in particular because they knew Mr R would not be at the gate as he had been the one curbing and stopping them from coming.

Mr K, regretted his actions, if he had helped Mr R or even given him audience at all, probably he would have told him about the plan.

Instance Three

A rich man who had over 50 hectares of land forcefully took over the little plot of land an old farmer had, the farmer begged him to please release the land but he refused. The thought of the loss of this land killed the old farmer,because he inherited it from his forefathers.

Now, after many years, the old farmer's son became the CEO of an organisation, and unfortunately things has turned around for the rich man, and his son came job hunting to the young man's company. On submitting his application letter and Curriculum Vitae(CV), he qualified for the job and had one last stage to go through before getting the job. And that's meeting with the CEO.

On entering the office, the CEO recognised him immediately he saw his Father's name and his state. He then told him to go call his father, that he knows the father.

On getting home he told his father he has qualified for the job, but the CEO wants to see his father before he gives him the job. They celebrated that night, happy he had gotten the job.

When they got to the office the next day and the father saw the young CEO who introduced himself as the son of the young farmer. The father started crying profusely that had he known, he wouldn't have acted wickedly, he would have even GIVEN the man out of his own land.

That was how the boy lost the job opportunity.

If is more honourable to give than to receive, the hand of the giver is always on top.

Learn to give in order to be your own BOSS. When you give you are laying your foundation, enlarging your coast and building your tent.

BE A BOSS

LEARN TO GIVE

SAYING I DONT HAVE IS NOT ACCEPTABLE.

IT IS NOT THAT YOU DO NOT GIVE BECAUSE YOU DO NOT HAVE rather it is YOU DO NOT HAVE BECAUSE YOU DO NOT GIVE.

It's in giving that we receive. What you give will come back to you in ways that you cannot imagine. It could be in different forms and aspects. It may not even be directly at you but the people you love. This is the secret of one of my friends. She always give a lot that's why she is continually blessed.

It is better to give than to receive. This is really true. However, if giving doesn't make you happy, then better not do it. We are always reminded to give with a joyful heart.

There is power in giving and you tend to receive more when you keep giving what you have just like the Beggar A. He was wise because he knew the adage that says givers never lack. Thank you for sharing Sis

Good karma comes to those who give genuinely, whilst bad karma visits those who forcefully take others' goods just what happened to your instance 2.

And you are so right, many people find it hard to give of what they have. They think that because they have little they can't share with others. The real pleasure is in sharing the little you have and not the much you don't have. Try it and you will see how much joy it brings to your life.
