Being in a business mindset was my mental state for years. Then one day, in one of my early morning trances, I was suddenly moved to do something that had nothing to do with making money.
I wanted to help the community that had helped make me successful. I soon discovered that becoming involved in helping the community was not only profitable in the long run, but also gratifying beyond my wildest imagination.
It was then that I thought back to something my father had once told me: “All the money really belongs to God. We all just use it at different times.”
I was suddenly hit with an entire new life philosophy: In the final analysis, a person’s legacy, as well as a nation’s, should be based on what they can do to help those that can’t help themselves, not those who can.
