Doing things for recognition or because you have to or because someone toldyoue to try it isn’t the way to go. It has to be more than that. For something to stick we have to buy into the reason behind the reason. In whatever we do, The real reason to do something is for the reward in doing it and for the help it brings to others. Do good things for other people because it is the right thing to do, don’t do everything for you and your feelings. Stop doing things because someone told you to do them a long time ago. Do what you do because you fully believe in it. When you do things with heart behind it, you get more out of it.
The two things that you can do by yourself that brings help & health to you is exercise and quiet time. Other than that, others need to be included to make a bigger impact.
In my own life, when I have done things for the wrong reasons, I become disenchanted with them very quickly. Here is what I have learned along the way and the “Whys” of starting to do things for the right reasons.
1. Start something bigger than you.
This involves more people and makes an impact in the lives of more people. When more people are involved, it causes motivation for everyone else, too. This cuts selfishness out and lets you see the bigger picture. Start thinking now- What is that one thing I can do to help others? I will give you a few seconds to think about that.
Alright. Hope you came up with that one thing you can begin doing now to help others. How often you do that one thing is completely up to you.
2. Be aware of the needs around you.
When you are in tune with your surroundings, you are able to make a bigger impact in the lives of others and others become your true reason. Going back to last episode, when you create more margin in your life, you have more time to impact others as well.
3. Do it for the satisfaction of becoming better at something.
When you keep at something and you practice doing it, you will become better at it, no matter what it is. When you practice good, you will become better at doing good for others and it will become an even bigger habit for you.
