“In about the same degree as you are helpful you will be happy.”
– Karl Reiland
Have you ever noticed that the people who have the most things are often not very happy? Many times, they are downright miserable and no amount of “more” seems to fill their emptiness.
The givers and helpers of the world seem to have a greater sense of contentment and satisfaction with life, even if they come from modest means.
It appears that a life focused on others versus on oneself provides for greater fulfillment.
Experiment by having a “helping day” today where you go out of your way to be extra helpful to friends, family and colleagues.
Put your random acts of kindness on overdrive and notice the reaction that others have – and just as importantly, notice the many smiles that find their way onto your face.
