Who did we help today?
Have we gone outside our comfort zone today to make life a little easier for someone else?
Did we collaborate and help someone else achieve their goals?
The capacity to assist another person on this planet is one of the great human traits.
Some amazing people – like Mother Teresa – devoted their entire lives to helping others.
We don’t have to be so magnanimous and selfless.
But we can do something today to help another.
We have the entire day to find one or two ways to ease someone’s suffering, to care for another, to make a quick call to a lonely friend.
We must be aware of our surroundings and actually notice the needs of others.
The mindset of helpfulness can give our work life more meaning.
We can view ourselves as someone who trudges to work each day, clocks in, works, clocks out.
Or we can think about how we are helping people.
It is hard to think of a job that doesn’t help someone else.
But if you aren’t feeling fulfilled, maybe because your job is not impactful enough.
That you aren’t helping enough people.
If you truly help, your work life will feel fulfilling and you will be happier.
When we come to the end of our days, it will be the people that we helped the most that will surround us.
