If youre too busy to give your neighbor a helping hand, then youre just too darned busy.
Marie T. Freeman
All of us can use a helping hand now and then. After all, a helping hand that lifts us up when were feeling down and out can help get us back on track. A helping hand that pats us on the back when our confidence is shaken can lend a great deal of reassurance when its desperately needed. And a helping hand that protects us when were most vulnerable can help turn our lives around.
All of us, each and every one of us, need a helping hand from others on occasion. There are no exceptions to this hard and fast rule. The strongest and weakest amongst us require help from others in order to thrive and prosper. And since thats the case, doesnt that mean those around us need our helping hands as well? You bet it does.
If you haven't any charity in your heart, you have the worst kind of heart trouble.
Ralph Waldo Emerson said, It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself. By helping those around us, we in turn help ourselves as well. And best of all, the best helping hands youll ever find are located right where theyve always been: right there at the end of your sleeves.
Helping out others in their times of need does indeed help us in more ways than we can count. By pitching in and helping others, we make them feel better about themselves while enriching our own feelings of self worth as well. By showing that we care enough about them to lend a much needed helping hand, we build others up while building our own self esteem in the process. In the end, the good that we give out comes full circle and comes back to us many times over.
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.
Danny Thomas had this to say about helping others: Success has nothing to do with what you gain in life or accomplish for yourself. Its what you do for others. And there is no limit what you can do for others, is there?
Why not look for ways to help those all around you instead of selfishly asking Whats in it for me? By selflessly giving yourself away every day, youll discover that there is more and more of you to give. Lending that helping hand is truly the gift that keeps on giving. Then, just like the bunny in the battery commercials that keeps going and going and going, you can keep on giving and giving and
giving some more.
When you constantly give yourself away, you give others the greatest gift of all.
The Bottom Line: Whenever you lend others a helping hand, their lives and your life are in good hands.
