What Can MrBeast Teach Us About Generosity? #infectiousgenerosity #mrbeast

MrBeast has taught us that generosity is infectious. His 200 million subscribers are evidence that people are attracted to positivity and kindness, rather than doom and gloom. In a world full of anger and fear, MrBeast has shown that it’s possible to spark waves of kindness across the planet.

His crazily audacious stunts have not only entertained millions but also inspired countless others to consider the possibilities of generosity. His stories are anchored in the idea that generosity is not just a nice thing to do, but it’s actually really cool and beautiful. It’s a message that is reaching a whole new generation and changing the way they perceive the world.

Perhaps MrBeast’s influence is a sign that the pendulum is finally swinging in the right direction. Instead of infecting each other with negativity, we can be brave and give what we can, and then be absolutely amazed at what happens next. MrBeast’s impact on YouTube and social media has shown that generosity has the power to create incredible ripple effects, and maybe it’s time for all of us to embrace this new mantra for the connected age.

Video Transcript

I am sick of how mean the world is.  I’m sick to my stomach about it. I think you are as well, I think everyone is. Can we actually picture a world where instead of infecting each other with anger and upset and fear,  we’re sparking waves of  kindness across the planet? 

The pendulum needs to swing, and the pendulum may indeed be swinging.  One of the top influencers on YouTube is not a peddler of doom and gloom. He’s someone who wants to share the amazingness of life, and he does so with these kind of, crazily audacious stunts. 

I’m talking, of course, about MrBeast and his 200 million subscribers.  Many of his stories are anchored in generosity. He is introducing a whole new generation to the possibility that generosity  is actually really cool. It’s a beautiful thing. Maybe the new mantra for the connected age should be something like this:

“Be brave. Give what you can,  and then be absolutely amazed at what happens next.”
