A Reminder…

October 26, 2008
WHEN YOU START GIVING OUT, YOU’LL SOON BEGIN TAKING IN
 
There’s an old folk song about a thirsty traveller who comes across a pump in the desert.  An attached note explains that there’s a jar of water buried nearby to prime the pump.  You’ve got to give before you get , the note says.  It is up to the traveller to decide whether to drink the water from the jar or take a chance that the small amount of water invested will result in an unlimited supply of cold, clear water.
 
So it is with going the extra mile.  You’ve got to give before you get.  You cannot expect to receive generous rewards and then decide what to do in return.  You must give freely and have faith that the rewards will eventually come.  As clergyman Frank Grain once said, "You may be deceived if you trust too much, but you will live in torment if you do not trust enough."
 
(Napoleon Hill)
