27 Dec Selflessness
“When you become detached mentally from yourself and concentrate on helping other people with their difficulties, you will be able to cope with your own more effectively. Somehow, the act of self-giving is a personal power-releasing factor.”
-Norman Vincent Pearle
The above quote illustrates the power of selflessness as well as self-fufillment. I believe these two concepts can often be perceived as paradoxical, when in truth, they can co-exist beautifully. What better way to build one’s own sense of character than to help promote the well-being of others? I challenge each one of you to consider the above quote next time you’re feeling overwhelmed with the expectations of others or from yourself. Try this for one week and see how your sense of self improves through serving others.
