Giving men the opportunity to fish

The global economic crisis has left a lot of people jobless and without food on the table. Really depressing but the scenario is inevitable. Otherwise, the prophesy would be a farce.

To come to somebody's aid is always good. It gives people hope. However, it is always better to bail-out those who are also helping themselves. Only then will it be truly rewarding, for both.

Ages ago, I was a recipient of an opportunity to make a difference in my life. With the generous guidance of my uncle Andy and aunt Janet, they set the stage for a comfortable future. Words are not enough to thank them.

For years now, I have been striving to pay it forward by lending others a hand. I do not have the means to give away fish, but I try to share the waters with them.

In a couple of weeks, my brother Paolo and I will employ a team of consultants for a long-term project. The group is composed of hardworking individuals, some without work while others with little to speak of.

This is what the Law of Attraction is all about too. Appreciation and gratitude paves the way to generosity. It makes you feel good and generate positive energy to attract more abundance into your life. Not necessarily monetary but could be in any form that makes you fulfilled and happy.

God bless you!

Wonderful post indeed. You have highlighted the Law of Attraction for the good of mankind. At least a 100 people of this vast population on this earth may benefit and change for a positive helpful attitude towards the needy.
