Daily quote and Reflection–Importance of Helping Others

Daily Quote: “It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life, that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.” Emerson

Reflection: Does this statement ring true for you? Think back to a recent time that you unselfishly and without the expectation of pay help someone else. I have done this and I can remember the feeling of joy and pride I felt just to be in the position to help without expecting a payback.

Action: If you have not experience these feelings in the next 24 hours provide support, encouragement or help for someone. Then take the time to observe and record how you felt. Maybe this will be the start of a new habit for you. Good Luck. Keep us posted on your experience.

  1. I think more often than not, myself, and perhaps others suffer from “the Adam and Eve complex.” This is when one is apprehensive to approach others or, sometimes, even say hello to another person. Do you have or know of any techniques on how to overcome this phenomenon? I think back to what you have said to me in the past, and I think you said something to the effect that “you’re not putting everything on the line,” by saying hello or doing something for somebody, as you suggest in your blog.——Todd
