Generosity is a quality that's a lot like unselfishness. Someone showing generosity is happy to give time, money, food, or kindness to people in need.

Generosity is a quality — like honesty and patience — that we all probably wish we had more of. When you show generosity, you might give away things or money or put others before yourself. But generosity is about more than cash and stuff. When you're forgiving and gentle to people, you show generosity of spirit. If you give others help or credit, that shows generosity. The world would certainly be a better place if more people showed generosity to others.

Consider Helen Keller: After a horrific illness she contracted at 19 months of age, she was left deaf and blind. However, that did not stop her from becoming one of the most prolific authors, political activists and lecturers. She is known for her campaigns on women suffrage and labour rights, among other achievements. Living in late 1800s – early 1900s in a United States that is so different from what we know today, Keller, despite her disabilities managed to push so much for the causes she held dear in her heart.

To her, a person that does not have strong beliefs, a vision and mission in life, has very little to contribute towards the enrichment of him/herself or those around them. “The only thing worse than being blind is having sight but no vision,” she once said. And this is an idea we should constantly keep reminding ourselves of. So often we get absorbed in our daily tasks – mundane routines, and the need to carry on our work in fear of losing our jobs. How often do we think of our vision? For a better world, but even closer to us, for a better us? How do we justify our everyday actions? Do we have a purpose for what we do? And, taking it a bit further – how selfish are we? Do we only think of ourselves? Do we think of a vision for the place we work at? Do we want to contribute towards the betterment of the establishment? What about our community? Are we thinking of our role in it and how we can help its development into something greater?

A vision makes our actions more meaningful. It makes our everyday lives, our careers and all our interactions contribute towards something. So go ahead and think of yours!

Eva hopes that many more people will aspire to achieve something greater in life – something that can make a difference to the lives of those around us; not just ourselves.
