Forget Yourself In The Process

There is joy in helping other people. There is connection in helping other people. There is life in helping other people. There is happiness in helping other people. There is.

As Anne Frank famously put it, “No one has ever become poor by giving.” That is right. When you help other people discover who they are, when you help other people find happiness in their lives, when you help other people achieve greatness, you are helping yourself. There is life in helping others. It will come back to you.

You will enjoy helping others if you are not expecting anything in return. You will enjoy helping others if you forget yourself in the process. If not, you are going to be exhausted, because no one will be able to pay you back what you have given to them. You will enjoy helping others if you just do it.

Whatever it is that you do, forget yourself in it. Forget yourself in the process, in the game, and you will enjoy the game. Don’t think of what will go wrong, don’t worry about the outcome, don’t worry about why you are even doing it, just do it! Just focus on the process, and you will never regret doing it.

When you help people, just help. Be a helper. The world needs more helpers.

Be a helper. You can help in a big way; you can also help in a small way. Help other others, and others will help you. Serve others, and others will serve you. When you do it, remember to forget yourself in the process.

Yesterday’s Mistakes

We have all made terrible mistakes in the past. The question is, how do we keep them in the past? How do we prevent them from affecting our lives? How do we prevent them from standing in the way to a better future?

Past mistakes are not going anywhere. They are part of our lives. What we can do is to reduce the power they have over us. How can we do that?

If you want to enjoy today, if you want to live a happier life, keep your past mistakes in the past. That does not mean you should forget them. That is not what I am talking about. Don’t let them disrupt your life. Control them by controlling how you think about them.

If yesterday’s mistakes are still holding you back, if they are still pulling you back, do one thing: never turn back, always forward looking. If you turn back, then the power of yesterday’s problems will bring you down. Don’t allow that to happen. Focus on today. Concentrate on what you are doing today, and don’t let the past steal your future away.

You have a better life ahead of you, so protect it.
