"Help yourself, and God will help you."
Jean de La Fontaine
There's nothing like a caring, sharing helping hand to lift us up when our spirits are down. Sometimes that helping hand comes from another person who cares enough to help us get back on our feet. Their steady hand pulls us out of the doldrums, pats us on the back and makes us feel better about ourselves.
Yet, more often then not, finding a helping hand can prove particularly elusive; especially in those trying moments when we need it the most. Feeling lost, depressed, mired neck deep in a hopeless mess, that helping hand we so desperately seek is nowhere in sight. We start believing that there's no one there to pick us up, no one there to help us out. And we couldn't be more wrong.
"Looking for help? Then look within."
Far too often, far too many of us never discover the strongest, surest helping hands on earth. Now that doesn't mean we don't look over here and search over there to find them; because we do that and more. Yet in spite of all of the searching and seeking, we somehow manage to overlook the hands at the end of our own sleeves.
Right there in front of us is all the help we'll ever require, all the help we'll ever need. And it's right where it is has been all along, right in the palms of our own hands. Everything we have dreamed of having, being and doing is within our reach, within our grasp; right there for the taking. We simply need to reach out and grab the best life has to offer with our own hands.
"Find out how much God has given you and from it take what you need, the remainder is needed by others."
In order to achieve more, we've got to be willing to ask more... of ourselves. Rather than waiting and hoping for someone else to come along and bail us out, we need to be more assertive; more willing to take matters into our own hands. And when we fail or fall down along the way, which we are sure to do on occasion, we simply need to pick ourselves back up, brush ourselves off and get right back in the game.
If something requires more effort, we need to give it. If the task needs more focus, we need to show it. If we need more energy, more enthusiasm, more excitement, we need to provide it. Whatever it takes, whenever it's needed, that's what high-octane living is all about.
"Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who have kept on trying when there seemed to be no help at all."
Rather than getting down and even worse, staying down in the dumps, we need to lend ourselves a helping hand. We should help ourselves to a more rewarding life. We should help ourselves to a more fulfilling life. As a matter of fact, we should help ourselves to more of just about everything we want out of life. Our fate is right where we should want it to be; right there in our own hands.
You need to start living life like it's an all-you-can-eat buffet, helping yourself to the very best life has to offer. And I don't mean just taking a little nibble here and there. I'm talking about loading your plate with all of the good stuff you can handle, scooping up one heaping helping after another.
Be sure to pile it on good and high. Then dig in with both hands. And if you want seconds, thirds or even fourth helpings? Go ahead and take them. Help yourself to all that you want. And keep helping yourself for the rest of your life.
The Bottom Line Need a helping hand? Then roll up your sleeves and get to work.
