Happy to be of service

Do you want an endless number of opportunities to be happy? Then be happy to be of service.

There’s always something you can do to help someone else. There’s always a way to make life better for those who live it.

You can find much fulfillment and satisfaction in knowing you’ve genuinely made a difference for others. That’s a powerful way to be happy.

Do it not to look good, not to gain an advantage or to be owed a favor. Just do it for the joy of being helpful, and let others take from it what they will.

Yes, some people might take undue advantage of your helpfulness. But as long as it’s not harming you, let it be their problem, not yours.

Be happy to be of service. And you’ll always have plenty of ways to be happy.

— Ralph Marston
