A generous individual

Generosity in general terms means goodness. The bitter truth is that in this 21st century, it is hard to find a generous individual but a ray of light is always present amidst the darkness around. A genuine individual possesses certain distinct characteristics.

I. A generous individual will always respect the old and show love and care for the young.

II. A generous individual will always have mercy for the poor and any other individual who suffers from any kind of disability.

III. A generous individual will never break the rules and code of conduct of any institution or any organization whether or not he or she is associated or disassociated with the same.

IV. A generous individual will always have the progress of his or her society and nation as a whole at heart instead of just fulfilling their own desires and selfish interests.

V. Whatever the circumstances be, a generous individual will never show disrespect and anger even to individuals who deserve such treatment. Instead of finding fault in others, generous individuals find fault in their own selves as a result of which they mould and adapt themselves to such situations.

VI. A generous individual does not blame the external situations or people for any wrong situation in his or her life. Such individuals understand the fact that they themselves are responsible for the mishaps in their lives instead of blaming others.

Generosity is not God- gifted. It is an attribute that an individual develops with time. In most of the cases, a family is responsible for making and breaking a generous individual. If a child grows up in circumstances where the attribute of generosity is visible in the parents and among the family members; he or she is bound to turn into a generous individual.

Peers also have a great influence in building the attribute of generosity in an individual. If on the other hand, the parents, family and the peers do not possess the character of generosity; it is tough that an individual understands the significance and necessity of being a generous individual. We are always told to work hard and be honest if we want our nation to progress.

But we fail to understand the fact that generosity is as important as any other positive attribute in an individual. If we take a close look into the lives of successful individuals, such as Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, Laxmi Mittal, Steve Jobs and the like, we will find one attribute as being common among them; the attribute of generosity.

Generosity brings balance in the life of the individuals as a result of which they are bound to achieve unimaginable success in their lives. We should understand the fact that though it is a bit difficult to be generous in all the situations in life but at the end generosity bears the fruits of peace, success and happiness in the lives of individuals.  – Kirti DagaNatural memory enhancer
