Keys to increase.

There are various ladders one can climb to increase, part of which are caring for others, daring for others, giving and sharing. In other to increase we need to learn to make others happy and successful. We need to develop the habit of caring for others, taking up challenges, risks, daring for others, giving and sharing with others, not just for our relations and ourselves alone. Increase is the evidence of life; we all know that dead things don’t increase, they rotten or decay. Giving is one important factor that releases automatic blessing upon the giver. If you have it, learn to share it with others. Here is the story of a young lady waiting for a flight in the boarding room of a big airport. As she would need to wait many hours, she decided to buy a book to while away the time. She also bought a packet of cookies to munch. She sat down in an armchair, in the VIP lounge of the airport, to rest and read in peace. Beside the armchair where the packet of cookies lay, a man sat down in the next seat, opened his magazine and started reading. When she took out the first cookie, the man took one also. She felt irritated but said nothing. She just thought:
“What a nerve! If I was in the mood I would punch him for daring!”
For each cookie she took, the man took one too. This was infuriating her but she did not want to cause a scene. When only one cookie remained, she thought:
“Ah... I wonder what this offensive man would do now?”
Then, the man, taking the last cookie, divided it into two, giving her one half. Ah! That was too much! She was much too angry now! In a huff, she took her book, her things and stormed to the boarding place.
When she sat down in her seat, inside the plane, she looked into her purse to take out her eyeglasses, and, to her surprise, her packet of cookies was there, untouched, unopened!
She felt so ashamed!! She realized that she was wrong... She had forgotten that her cookies were kept in her purse. The man had divided his cookies with her, without feeling anger ...while she had been very angry, thinking that she was dividing her cookies with him.
When you share with others, it will be very difficult for people to stop your increase, as the power for increase does not submit to conditions or environmental pressure.

Be Blessed.
