I have tried unsuccessfully to embed this video here, so I am going to leave you with the link to this "nothing short of amazing" video on the power of asking, on human nature, and other little sweet tidbits, like what really constitutes having "a job".
I truly hope you enjoy it, and from the bottom of my heart: thank you!.
Amanda Palmer, The Art of Asking
PS. I got to this video through the post of Diane, from CraftyPod. Enjoy!
