Are Generous People More Successful?

Are generous people more successful? Cultural idioms like it’s a “dog-eat-dog-world” and “nice guys finish last” may have you thinking that while generosity is the “right” way to be, it doesn’t always pay-off in the end. And that somehow the “ends justifying the means” is the way to get to the top of the success scale.

Well, we have a contrary belief to the worldview of generosity and, as it turns out, there are studies that reveal that generosity does, in fact, lead to success!

Be sure to tune-in to this week’s short episode of The Money Guy Show to find out just how successful some generous people are and how they get there while others do not.

Here’s What You’ll Find Out in this Episode:

  • Why being generous makes people happier according to a 2017 University of Zurich research study
  • What Adam Grant, author of Give and Take: A Revolutionary Approach to Success found in his research and why givers are actually at the very top of the success scale
  • Why some givers wind up on the bottom as pushovers and doormats while others have incredible success
  • The 7 ways that givers can find success according to Forbes Senior Staff Editor Susan Adams
  • How to use your passion and generosity to give you purpose and drive
