The Importance of Helping Others

“You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want.” – Zig Ziglar

HelpingOthersWe all know that one of the most rewarding things we can do in life is to look outside ourselves and take a genuine interest in the lives of others. And of course, help them if we can.

But that’s easier said than done. First of all, who has the time? You’ve got work, chores, errands, family obligations, and who knows what else going on in your life. You barely have time for a little “you time,” let alone a little “someone else time.”

Second, how do you even start? There are a lot of people on this little blue ball of a planet, and a lot of them need a lot of help. Who’s first? Who’s next? And when does it end, if ever?

And third, what do you do with those people who just take and take, never giving back and never paying it forward? Do you help them as well?

The truth is, though somewhat cynical, these concerns are all valid ones when thinking about helping others. But there are answers to these quandaries.

First, with regard to time constraints, helping others is just like anything else in life — if it’s important, you make the time. And while that may still be a challenge for some, remember that even an hour a week might be enough to really make a difference in someone’s life.

And where do you start? Well, if a situation doesn’t present itself, there are always plenty of great organizations out there dedicated to helping others.

And finally, if you do find yourself in a situation where you’re doing all the giving and getting nothing back, remember that the truth is that you are getting something back. As long as you bear in mind that what you’re doing is as much for your good as theirs.
