Growth Through Change

Three Treasures

There exists an abundance of wisdom, knowledge and creativity around us all. Take a moment each day, open your mind and embrace a new idea. Seek out one of the numerous resources, such as the TAO, that offers encouragement and direction. Use what speaks to you and discard the rest.

An excerpt from the Tao Te Ching

The First is mercy.

The second is frugality.

The third is humility.

From frugality comes generosity.
From humility comes leadership."
