Life is not all about you
The World Doestn't Revolve Around Us
Boy does that hit the nail on the head. We humans have a tendency to think of the world only from our point of view and that limits our ability to enjoy all that life has to offer. It is true that we do give a great deal of thought to ourselves because we never get a break from ourselves. Where we are, there we are. I have this strange feeling that life is more complicated when we focus only on ourselves. And the reason I say this is because it harder for us to deal with ourselves then it is to help other people. And also we get more rewards upfront when we help others rather then ourselves.
How Many Times have You Been Mentioned?
Allow me to show you how unimportant you are to the rest of the world. Watch tv and read the newspaper and tell me how many times it mentions you or anything you do. More then likely your like me and there’s no mention of you anywhere in the two mediums.
Give Yourself Some Space
So for your good well being move away from yourself and see what else is going on in the world. You’ll find many opportunities to help others and enjoy the benefits that service provides to the giver.
Parents Make You Number One
Its very easy in life to think the world evolves around you and parents have a tendency to promote that kind of thinking by making you number one in their life. But in time life will require you move away from you parents and become a real member of the world. Life is about all of us and the world is getting bigger all the time.
Give Yourself to Others
One of the greatest joys in life is giving of yourself to others and help those who cant help themselves. Im not much of a religious person but I do believe that what you give freely to others is returned to you in greater ways then what you gave. So it makes sense to be a giver, then always being the center of attention.
One Good Deed
Go ahead and do just one good deed and then see what that does for you. In time something or someone will come your way and say thank you by being a helping hand to you. That’s how I feel and Im sticking to it.
