needs (food, shelter, safety), to attract a mate, to enhance self-esteem, or
to establish trust among peers and/or enemies. Giving to others or to a
benevolent cause with the intent of receiving thanks and/or recognition in
Level-Two Giving: Empowering and authenticating
your value system by: (1) not allowing your behavior to be influenced by the
negative behavior of others (2) treating the indignant with dignity (3)
showing respect to the disrespectful (4) excelling for those encouraging
your failure (5) performing with excellence for those believing you
incompetent (6) creating positive change, not through criticism, but from
your repeated examples of excellence for others to follow.
Level-Three Giving: Giving to or coming to the
aid of strangers, anonymously, without recognition or reward, while only
receiving satisfaction from within.
Level-Four Giving: Committing yourself in a crisis, without regard to consequences, to: (1) defending or protecting anotherís human rights and/or dignity (2) fighting for the right to defend and protect your adversaries (4) sacrificing or placing in jeopardy your life, health, or safety for the possible benefit of another (3) standing alone, if necessary, in defending righteous values or principles.
