Live in the service of others and help to make a positive impact on the world, people assume they should just concern themselves with their own lives earning their wage, living without contributing to making the world a better place, we are all one people, some have been given more, and some have less, so the ones who have an opportunity to help others should take the opportunity to make a difference. Life is too short to be self- centered and selfish. Our skills and gifts are not meant to make us better but to benefit the world and make this world and others better.
Helping others believe you me, is a fundamental part of humanity, bonding together and helping a fellow man or woman. In times of tragedy, the stories of those who help others are inspiring, such as helping the nation recovers from national disasters and terrorist attacks. Some men and women even devote their lives to helping other, to the fire departments who run into burning buildings, to the service men and women who risk their lives for the common good. I have had some of my best times as I helped at orphanages in training the children various sporting disciplines, the memories are precious and the experiences priceless.
Nowadays people have become so consumed by success, such that people think the world is meant only for them and it’s all about them. If you see someone around you, a family member or friend who is struggling in life, try to help them, one piece of advice can change the direction of someone’s life and change their path and take them to greater heights. Never look down upon people, who are not where they can be, we all have been at the bottom, advice is better than insults.
This is foreign and wild thinking to a culture that often sees the world as one giant competition. In their mind, there are a set number of winners and losers. And if somebody else wins, that’s one less opportunity for me. But I have come to realize the mindset of competition is based on a faulty premise. It assumes there is a finite sized pie – that one more success in another’s life equals one less success in mine. But quite frankly, this thinking is incorrect.
There is wonderful freedom and grace in realizing the size of the pie is not finite – that in reality, the pie keeps growing. Another’s success does not mean I have less opportunity. In fact, another’s success can actually be my success if I had opportunity to enable, encourage, and promote them along the way!
Consider how helping another achieve success,) results in significant benefits in a number of directions for that specific person and may impact them into many generations.
We all have been given gifts that we must utilize to create a better world, leave the world a better place then you found it, you have something special within you to offer the world. It is easy to just live the 9-5 life, but to live in the service of others is true greatness, to touch people’s lives in a positive way so that they don’t have to struggle in life, we are all capable of helping others to improve their quality of life.
Don’t start a business to just make money, start a business to make a difference that will change the world, be a game changer and be bold, there are thousands of companies that are solely focused on just accumulating the most wealth, be different and do something that will elevate you up with the some of the greats such as Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King, Ghandi, and Nelson Mandela. Start a business based on the vision of helping people and the money will follow, the priority is goodness, do good and g
ood will come to you in abundance.
Start small, think big, work hard and never give up. Get up and go out there and change the lives of millions of people. Believe in yourself you can do anything, one person can change the world for the better if they are determined to do so.
Our greatest successes in life are often found in helping others succeed. Our most lasting and fulfilling achievements are often earned by helping others fulfill theirs. I urge you to find your purpose in life and live a life of meaning.
