how helping others benefits you in the long run.

We know what we want in life.  We have a plan and it’s all written down in some form for us to refer to. We have shut out the naysayers and have the right people around us.  Or do we?

When you get to work, school, or whatever  you plan to do today do me a favor.  Look around you.  Consciously take a few seconds and look around your environment.  Now you see it, huh? Now you notice despair, worry, and nervousness.

You see your coworker with that uneasy look on their face. Or you see your classmate with fear in their eyes about something that has been bugging them.  How about that lady at the cash register this morning with not enough to buy some milk.

Help them.  That’s right. Help them now.  Don’t think about it, just do it.  Ask your coworker do they need help with that report.  Find out if you can help your classmate with whatever is bothering them.  Buy them a cup of coffee and sit and listen.  Buy that milk for that mother and let her know that it’s ok and this will all pass.  Tell her to remain strong.

We will all get to where we need to be eventually.  But we need to be in the service of helping others.  It’s something I have always believed in.  I have consistently helped people more than I have helped myself. But I know that this is my calling.  I will reap my reward in due time.  You will, too.  We just have to occasionally reach back and help others on the way to conquering our dreams.

Have a fantastic day.

  1. Great post! Coincidentally, I wrote a similarly themed post on the same day! We teamed up without even planning to 🙂 I think it’s a great message and I like your straight forward way of delivering it. I look forward to reading more from your blog.
