The fear of death follows from the fear of life. A man who lives fully is prepared to die at any time.
The best way to cheer yourself up is to try to cheer somebody else up.
Lending a hand to someone who is in need can truly make you feel better about yourself. The act of giving is both refreshing and enlivening. If you did something good to a person, that deed has a tendency to come back to you – tenfold. A lot of people are motivated to do something if they know they can benefit from it, but you must understand that giving will always be better than receiving or trying to get something. The only way to succeed in life… in business is to bring value into the lives of others, solve their problems. For me it was really hard to wrap my head around concept of giving away value for free, what really helped was – change in my perspective. Instead of thinking about giving away, I started thinking about mastering skill of providing value. So the whole concept changed from external goal to internal goal of mastering the skill and made it whole lot easier.
When you give your time, money and effort in helping someone, most of the times, the return is not immediate. However, your good deeds will return to you eventually and the positive feeling you gain from that act is immeasurable. You really feel cheerful and happy when your efforts made someone happy. Always remember, there will be a time when you’re the one who needs help – and the first person who will come to your aid will definitely be the one you helped before.
