383) A Spirit Of Service

A Spirit Of Service

Networking is about serving others. The more you serve others, the more you put into the world. And the more you put into the world, the more things that will come back to you. To this end, here is a thought.

No matter how bad off you might have it, the reality is that someone likely has it worse. Therefore, there should never be a shortage of people you can serve.

With that, a simple key to infusing a spirit of service in your life is to look around for someone to serve. They are there. People needing encouragement. People needing a little direction. People needing things you can help them with.

When you find one, understand their struggles. Then from here, you can certainly find a means of easing their heartache or lifting them up – even if only temporarily. And just like that you are serving the world around you.

254) Ripples Of Goodness

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.
