Traditionally, relationships have been about quid pro quo, or only doing something for someone else because they will agree to do something in return for me. When relationship focus on this, we are not living in the "WE" but instead focused on "I". When we come from the "I", we are in a scarcity mindset. We do things only because we will receive something in return.
However, there is no place for a scarcity mentality in a WE-Centric culture. When we give and expect nothing in return, that is what it looks like to have true partnership. How often do we do something for someone else and not keep track in our head. It doesn't matter if it is a spouse, friend or colleague, our tendency is to keep track of what we do for others. An abundance mentality allows us to give of our talents, gifts and time without an expectations.
Where do you have the opportunity to give without expecting anything in return?
