One of the most important parts of playing the Power of Contribution Game is when we are consciously being a Receiver. At first, this may sound counter-intuitive. Why is being a Receiver a big part of Contributing? The bottom line – it’s impossible for people to contribute if you won’t receive.
Contributing and Receiving go hand in hand. Think about it – it’s impossible to have one without the other.
I wonder, have you ever blown off someone who was trying to contribute to you? At one time or another, we’ve all done it. Whether it was a compliment we just couldn’t fully receive, or being distracted to the point where a new business opportunity completely passes us by, missing a contribution from another happens from time to time.
Mastering the Power of Contribution Game is about contributing AND receiving. This week I encourage you to tune into those who are genuinely contributing to you and fully receiving what they offer. And the great news is the more you receive, the more is offered. It’s a very cool dynamic to dance in.
