Have you ever done something in life thinking you wouldn't enjoy the experience but, after the fact, you realized it was amazing and you were so glad you did it? I think that’s what the act of giving looks like in America. As a nation, we are below-average givers, but many are excellent buyers and shoppers. Giving does not come naturally. If you question that statement, just visit any daycare, preschool, or home with multiple kids playing at the same time, and you will see what I’m talking about! Giving is something we must learn. Just like so many other important lessons of life that we teach our children (shower, wash your hands, brush your teeth, drink your milk, say thank you, I could go on foreverJ), teaching them how to live life generously, in their giving, will bring health and joy otherwise beyond their grasp.
I can hardly wait for week 3 of Get Rich… a paycheck alone won’t get you there. The good news…the path to getting rich is one we all can travel and pass on to our kids!
