Help people for no reason. It’s what we’re here on this planet for. No human being is an island. We can’t do it alone. Help someone because you believe in them. Don’t do it because you want something from them in return. Just help them. The reward will be that it makes you feel good to do something good for someone else.
There have been times in my life when people helped me for absolutely no reason. They just wanted to help and they did. I am forever grateful to every individual who has ever helped me when they had no incentive to do so. They simply believed in me and wanted me to succeed.
In turn, I choose to actively help others. When I believe in someone I help that person in whatever way that I feel I can be of assistance to them. And my reward is that I did something kind for someone. I feel good because it has been done for me the past. I will continue to help people that I believe in until I die.
The world is ultimately a self-centered place. Let’s change this. Today, think about someone who you can help and help them in whatever way you know how.
