We All Know Selfish People
Compared to saving the world from an inter-galactic attack, carrying groceries seems lame and pointless.
Does that mean we should pass up an opportunity to help someone out?
No one says, "I want to be selfish when I grow up." And yet, so many grow up to be just that. Why? What are they doing? Or better yet, what are they not doing?
Do they open doors for other people, take time to give someone a smile, include someone quiet standing nearby?
Maybe those are small things, but small things add up fast. Take the story of the young man who nearly went bankrupt during the 1849 gold rush, until a man with a heavy sack of gold showed him what was inside: gold dust. While other prospectors tossed away gold dust as they panned for nuggets, this man carefully retained every tiny flake, acquiring great wealth.
So rather than sit around, wishing for superpowers, why not rescue someone today in a smaller way.
Here's the challenge:
At your next opportunity, do something to help another--No Excuses.
