Being helpful

You don’t have to look far to find ways to be helpful. You just have to be willing, and open to making a difference.

Let go of the assumption that certain tasks are beneath you. Allow yourself to do whatever must be done.

When the choice is between making a small contribution and making no contribution, go ahead, take action. Make the small contribution.

You can’t change the whole world in an instant, but don’t let that stop you from making what changes you can. There is something you can do, some positive difference you can make, so go ahead with it.

Maybe no one will notice that you’ve made an improvement in the world, but that’s okay. You’ll know, and the improvement will be there, and that’s what really matters.

You have time and resources available to you right here in this moment, and you can use them for something worthwhile. It feels great to make life better, so experience that great feeling today.

— Ralph Marston
