Contentment In Success - Making Time For Others

 “No one has ever become poor by giving.” - Anne Frank, diary of Anne Frank

“Those who are happiest are those who do the most for others.”
Booker T. Washington, Up from Slavery  

 

Contrary to popular opinion, getting what I need by ignoring the needs of those around me is a sure path to unhappiness. There's a spiritual principal that determines my happiness is dependent on making time for those around me. When I focus on helping others along the way, I'm equipped to be happier and more content then ever possible. The idea isn't to have my happiness and goals dependent on other people but it's to consider the needs of others along the way to my goals. When I lay down my plans to assist someone along my way, I give place to compassion, a key to all success (with success being defined not only as an increase, but as contentment in that increase). Take time today to look outside your world, look beside your path, and find those that need help. As you help them, you are helping yourself to find the best life possible and be content with your success.
