The amount of effort I put into helping a person, is directly related to the amount of effort that person is willing to put into helping themselves.
I was unwilling to help myself most of my life, I wanted you to do it for me & that NEVER worked.

The goal for today: don’t ask others to do what I could & should do for myself!
Have a great day everybody!

No more will go in!” the professor blurted. “This is you,” the master replied, “How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup.”
