Think of where you are in life right now. Okay, it’s not perfect. No one’s life is. But if you’re honest, you’ll admit, it’s pretty darn good.
And sure, you’ve worked hard, made smart moves and had a bit of luck. But much of the goodness you enjoy has been created by others. Somewhere in the past, the efforts and sacrifices of people you may or may not know have rippled forward to serve you. Creating opportunities. Establishing programs. Clearing a figurative path.
Now it’s your turn. It’s your turn to put forth effort and make sacrifice to benefit others.
- Serve your family.
- Serve your neighbors.
- Serve your community.
It’s your turn to create your own ripples of goodness. Creating opportunities. Establishing programs. Clearing a figurative path. Know this: The good you do today never dies. It rolls forward. It lives on. In other people, in other places and throughout time. Your good deeds live on forever.
