"As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands. One for helping yourself, the other for helping others." ~ Abraham Lincoln

ALS Ribbon, mahalo david huff!The best way to help yourself is to get involved with helping others. To make a difference, volunteer. "We cannot all see alike, but we can all do good," observed successful entrepreneur P.T. Barnum.

Volunteering to help someone else pays off in so many ways:

When you help, you appreciate what you have and realize how blessed you are.

It's great for your career, because it looks great on a resume and is a super networking tool to finding more career and personal contacts.

Helping others builds your self-esteem. You feel good because you are making a difference. People need you!

It's so important to help others. There is value, priceless value in giving time and resources to others.

When you are volunteering, it's all positive... There's no time to feel lonely, guilty, or afraid.

To quote Helen Keller, "I am only one, but still I am one; I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; I will not refuse to do the something I can do."

Do something!
