This is the most selfless thing you can do. Help someone else do or have the very thing you desire. This life exercise will teach you humility and erase any selfishness you have inside of you. If you have been selfish in the past this is a great way to teach yourself to be giving at all cost.
The great thing is the sayings, “what goes around comes around” or “the things that you do come back to you” are true. Lucky for you, karma works in good and bad situations alike. So if you help someone get the business connection they need you will get the connection you need.
If you volunteer to help a friend conduct research for an important project they are working on the information you need will come flowing toward you. Helping others can feel good and that feeling is a reward but the benefit it reaps is an even bigger reward.
So if you choose the best food and wine for yourself also provide that for your guest. If you wish for peace also give peace and if it is knowledge you crave file it away. Remember you teach what you need to learn. Give what you need and you will never need anything again.
Giving…Now That’s Presidential!
