“If the entire world sought to make itself worthy of happiness rather than make itself happy, then the entire world would be happy.”
In life, you get what you put in. When you make a positive impact on someone else’s life, you also make a positive impact on your own life. Doing something that is greater than you, something that helps someone else be happy or suffer less, is a fantastic feeling.
Being selfless starts with having the ability to see beyond our own personal concerns and empathise with others, even those we have never met. If we are constantly consumed by your own problems and status, we have no time or energy to act selflessly.
Today, start with something simple, a warm smile to a stranger, holding a door open for someone coming in behind you, your options for other selfless deeds are endless. Look to find meaningful ways to be selfless on a daily basis. I promise, it will be a rewarding experience….
“…there is power in self-sacrifice.”
