It feels good to do good. When you give of yourself, it benefits you as much as it does the person on the receiving end, often times even more so. You feel energized in your body and fulfilled in your soul.
Plus, you never know the ripple effect your actions will have. The smallest and simplest action you take can have far-reaching and lasting impact, beyond anything you could have foreseen or anticipated.
Here are five simple ways you can give of yourself to uplift others.
If you’re committed to personal growth, you’ll be changing and evolving throughout the course of your life. As you change inwardly, your outward behaviours will change as a result. As you change your habits and outward behaviours, this will lead to inner changes.
At some point, these changes will have an impact on your relationships. While this impact may be subtle at times, it may be quite dramatic in some cases.
Does anyone deliberately set out to get things wrong, mess up, and make mistakes? Of course not! Everyone enjoys the feeling of being right and getting things right in their life. Making mistakes and dealing with the aftermath? That's definitely not so enjoyable.
But just as there’s value in recognizing that you don’t have all the answers in life, there’s also value in accepting that you’ve made mistakes.
What’s the area in you’re life where you’re an expert? Maybe you’re an expert athlete, an expert chef, or an expert gardener. Maybe you’re an expert at lifting people up when they’re down or making them laugh when they’re discouraged.
Whether in your professional life or personal life, achieving expert status is a great feeling. There’s a sense of confidence and security that comes with being at the top of your game, when you know exactly what you’re doing and you have all the answers.
