I am generous in sharing my time, money, and knowledge as I must help others get what they want before I can receive what I want.

I encourage people to invest in themselves by purchasing, and reading Think and Grow Rich and other personal development books, attending seminars, courses and events, and listening to audio programs.

I communicate and spend time with other positive, motivated, generous people.
