How giving value to others can give purpose to your own life.
This powerful thought-provoking inspiration has changed the way I view things in life. It not only changed my relationships, in fact, it also took my career to a whole new level of success. I have been searching for answers, Why are we in this world? Is it just to earn a living, fall in love, have kids, and then die peacefully? Or does it have a purpose behind it which we are incapable to figure out?
It took me many years of experience to realize that actual peace of mind is in helping others and valuing them over you. Everyone lives for themselves; the charm of living for others is inexpressible.
"Live for yourself and you will live in vain; live for others and you will live again"
Look around you; there are so many people whom you see helpless and miserable. Think for a moment, what if it was you instead of them? Vulnerable and discontented, hoping God will one day send someone to help you. You don't want to make yourself believe that no one is coming to the rescue. If you can imagine the pain one must be going through, you would never disappoint a person who sees you as a beam of light in a pitch-black room. For someone, you might be the one to bring hope back into their life.
"The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away".
God has blessed everyone with a few gifts that separate us from one another. However, those blessings give us an edge on various aspects of life. We should be considering it a sign to utilize it in the most optimistic way ever. Learn how to share your gifts. Value others by offering all that you possess, it can be anything. It can be your knowledge, skills, wealth, or advice. By sharing these things, you will find more opportunities in life. Because, when you are focused on a good cause it naturally brings a spark of positivity in your behaviour, approach, and results. This definitely reflects back in your career and personal life.
Basically, your ultimate success is hidden in this life tip to value and live for others. The inner peace you gain is remarkable. When you are happy inside out, your morale is boosted. The more you share, the more you explore achievement in life.
There a few things we can do to attain our goal of valuing others and sharing our gift with them.
Many around us can be our office mate, a neighbour, or a friend who need a little motivation to perform well. In these busy times, no one has time for a few lines of motivation. You never know, that a few words of motivation from you can help a colleague, neighbour, or friend to perform very well.
Sharing grieves is something we all do with our loved ones when we need a shoulder to cry. But have you ever thought of sharing happiness with the same person? We think sharing grief is just for receiving a few words of sympathy. Whenever we share something sad with someone, it actually impacts their mood and gives a sense of sorrow too. So from now on why not share our joys with them? Because when they cry with us, they deserve to smile with us too.
If you are blessed with skills that help you get an edge and earn a living, you better not keep it to yourself. That is something selfish to do. Remember, sharing knowledge always increases your knowledge.
Become a good listener
In this stressful time, many of us do not get a chance to be heard or express all that is cooking in our heads. Many book an appointment for psychologists to just be heard and get some calming comments. Many people around you might need to express themselves. You can be a good listener for them by offering a peaceful listening session free of cost.
Share your experience
We make mistakes and learn from them which we call our experiences. Helping someone out of the way by sharing an experience that would save their time and energy can be one of the positive aspects too.
Become a mentor
If you have had a bumpy journey, while you have discovered many life hacks now that you wish you had known a long time ago. It is a great blessing if you have figured out how to invest, where to invest, which educational program has a future scope, learning which technical skill can make more money, what talents are in demand in near future based on your experienced prediction. You can become a free mentor and guide those who are still struggling to find answers.
This optimistic mindset will lead you towards your ultimate goal of a successful and blissful life. A famous Chinese proverb says:
"If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day, go fishing.
If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody."
