All of us have a choice when we wake up in the morning. We can choose to demand gifts or we can choose to give gifts.
The person who wakes up and chooses to demands gifts will likely spend their day disappointed and angry because they expect others to give them what they want when they want it, but they don't get it, because all they do is manipulate and play games to get what they want—and nobody wants to give gifts to those kinds of people.
The person who wakes up and chooses to give gifts, however, will likely spend their day excited and alert to the many opportunities to give gifts to others and affect positive change in their lives—and not surprisingly, a gift exchange usually happens when one this kind of person gifts another.
So many creatives aspire to be gifted for their work. But what if they aspired to gift others with their work, instead?
It's likely that a beautiful gift exchange would take place.
