Here's how to build it in the beginning man, just offer thanks and smiles. That's all I do when I have nothing, I bring positivity. One of my mentors is a multimillionaire, extremely well cultured, great family, easy job, PhD in Finance... and the coolest motherfucker ever. Seriously he has this entire level of his house dedicated to his Andy Warhol collection it's badass haha. How the fuck can I help this guy out who has it all? All I do is offer thanks, smiles, and meaningless chores if he needs a hand building something or moving something. And he gladly offers advice for this trade, because he knows I'm not trying to sap from him, I'm giving what I can.
Meanwhile he's building me up to alpha level, and I then gain skills which I use to help others. This begins the alpha cycle, I'm creating more alphas, who will create more alphas, and so on.
