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.
