We are all gifted with a unique set of skills and abilities. With those
abilities we can make extra-ordinary things happen in the world around
us, or not.
It is completely up to you whether you want your life to make a difference and what difference you want your life to make.
Many people set lofty goals for their lives and want to be remembered as visionaries, they want to change and save the world.
Others want to be remembered as the kind man or women down the street who always helped and always listened if you needed help.
Who do you think is the better person?
The one who changes the world or the one who saves the individual?
Do what not have to do incredible things; just being there for the
people around you can save someone from a meaningless life and help them
lead the life they were meant to live.
Small things matter
Changing the life of another person is an incredible feeling and it is
completely within your grasp. You can do this by deciding to become a
mentor for a young ambitious person. You can help them avoid the
mistakes you have made and help them learn from the ones they will
inevitably make themselves.
Fight for someone's rights
You will often see someone get treated unfairly. It happens both
professionally and socially, individuals who deserve recognition do not
By taking up the fight and making sure others get what they deserve and
earned you will be a true hero. You will make a lasting impact on their
lives and you will be rewarded with love and help in the future when you
are in need.
The law of karma says that whatever you do you will get back three fold,
helping others is therefore a selfish act, but still a good act, one
that you should do without fear, with love and with the knowledge that
you will one day be rewarded.
Go the distance
Compromise is the enemy of long term commitment, if you have committed
to helping someone by being their mentor or by fighting for their
rights, doesn't stop half way. Go the distance and see it through. Make
sure something happens so all your work doesn't end up as only talk.
In truth we might all be here to help each other, we might all be a part
of a machine that fosters cooperation, or were not. We might just be
here to make the best of the situation for ourselves.
In any case, helping others brings happiness and prosperity into your
own life, so for whatever reason you chose to help others, it will
always help you in return.
The difference between stopping half way and finishing isn't much in
terms of the work you put in, but worlds apart in the difference for the
individual you are helping.
