FCPGM032: Charity... does it really help?
Show Notes

The Greek storyteller - Aesop - once said “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted”. On the surface, that seems logical, wise and well meaning. However, there are times when kindness, giving or charity cross over the threshold to enablement and other times, when your charity is siphoned off by middlemen to the point that the intended recipient is left no better off than before you gave a penny at all. When does charity really help? When is tough love better than unconditional support?

Gym Momma's Quote:
"Help people help themselves. Don’t judge, just help. In this process, be cautious to simply point them in the right direction and help them get moving. Don’t make your journey theirs, nor make their journey yours
- Dr Steve Maraboli.
