There’s nothing quite as great as the feeling when you’ve done something for someone else. Contributing to something beyond ourselves, something greater than ourselves is endlessly inspiring.
“We rise by lifting others”
Helping someone else – by for example giving your time, sharing your knowledge, ideas, skills or network, is just great to do.
Do it unconditionally. Don’t do it expecting something back. If you get something back, then great, but never let that be the reason why you do it. Help because you want to.
To lead is to be of service to others, to enable others to do more, to be more.
Who can you of service to today? How can you help solve their problem, make their day easier? Who can you help today?
Thanks for helping!
