Helping Others

In today's world there are plenty of people who belong to the "it's all about me" club. Many people believe it's a "me, me, me" world and miss an essential part of life-- helping others.
 
Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: "To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, ... to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a little better; whether by a healthy child or a garden patch ... to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is success."
 
Helping others and contributing to their happiness is an important component of your own success.There are many opportunities to help others, but two not-for-profit organizations, Volunteer Match and Helping Others, can get you started. Consider volunteering at your church, a youth or senior center, a hospital, or a food pantry, for example. The need is great, and the opportunities for you to positively impact others are enormous.
 
Make sure your vision includes helping others. Successful people set and achieve goals. Successful people enjoy their success, have many friends, have a good self-image and know the importance of helping others. Help others for a richer, fuller life.
 
Suggestions for implementation:
  • List some of the volunteering opportunities in your local area.
  • Decide where the need is greatest and where your interests are.
  • Decide if your volunteering will be a family exercise or an individual one.

Questions for discussion:
  • How much time per week or per month can you devote to your new activity?
  • Volunteering will take time from something you have been doing. What part of your life will change to make room for the volunteering activity?
  • What do you think you will learn from helping others?
 

Please forward this life skills idea to your friends.
