The best way to help yourself is to get involved with helping others. To make a difference, volunteer. Volunteering to help someone else pays off in so many ways:

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

  • 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. Volunteering is a super networking tool to make career and personal contacts.

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

  • Volunteering empowers you to better understand people... the organization you are working with... and yourself.

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