Thought For The Week

YOU have three bottom lines, helping yourself, helping others and helping the environment. Helping yourself must come first, for without that, you can’t help others. It’s like the oxygen mask announcement on a plane. ‘Please secure your own mask before assisting others.’

Of course, if you don’t survive, those around you may have no chance at all. The same goes for money. If you don’t have it, how can you assist others?

  • Very true. Sort yourself out first in business and the rest can follow and you can help others.

  • Sometimes it’s great to be able to help out friends and colleagues. As you say, you need to feel up to speed with stuff first to be able to impart a, knowledge or b, funds. I have been in the position of helping people where I can and it’s brilliant. Family come first of course, although I was able to help a friend too, once and that worked well as he went on to benefit in a big way.

    Have just read this article and have made a decision about something, thinking about me rather than someone else. It’s also very true that you need to love yourself before you can love someone else. Thank you Clive.
