Dani Johnson, multi-millionaire and best-selling author (from homeless to millionaire in two years) speaks of this often. In her book, First Steps to Wealth, she states regarding the ‘Law of Promotion:’
“A lot of people think they will treat people a certain way when they are successful, or they will give to charity when they’re wealthy. But you have to treat people that way now, and you have to give to others now.”
