Is It Really Better to Give Than to Receive?

While talking about the overused quote "It is better to give than to receive", Harv Eker says: "Let me put this as elegantly as possible: `What a crock! That statement is total hogwash...'". Harv really has a way with words.

The rationale behind the impudent attack on such a widely accepted saying is simple and quite logical. If there's no receiver, then there will be no giver, which means that the receiver is as important as the giver. So if both are equally important in the equation, how can one be better than the other?!

It's wonderful to give, but it's also marvelous to receive. So go ahead and take whatever life gives you.
