Tuesday's Treasures - Altruism, the Path to Success

For some, it may be foreign to believe that helping others is a sure path to success. Selfishness comes to mind when we think that competition is the focus. The goal seems to be more ‘individually’ focused than it should be - as a team, a community.


There is something to be said about creating a culture of giving - not just giving to those who can’t help themselves but, to those who can but, perhaps are struggling in today’s world. The freedom, the grace, the self-realization that we experience when helping others succeed is truly the accomplishment in life that we should all aspire to achieve.


Be altruistic - place others’ needs before your own - give, give, give.


If you realize that perhaps you are being a bit self-centered and single-mindedly focused, try inspiring or encouraging someone. Your selfless efforts will come back to you in dividends!


This is the month of the year that we focus on thankfulness. Be thankful for what you have and pay it forward.


Helping others achieve their dreams

Good morning Debe.

What a great message, if only most people would follow that plan.  Just think of all  the good things that would follow

Good Morning, James Dray! I think many of us focus on our own goals - which is not a bad thing at all - but, it would be so nice to see more folks sharing their knowledge with those who are struggling as well. 

Have a great Wednesday!

I think that when you truly care about others and what is best for them, it really shows and makes things easier all the way around.

Good morning Debe. It is funny, I don't think I have heard the word altruism in a very long time. You are right and I enjoyed this

Hi Debe you know I know a lot of folks that are about being of service to others and their communities. I grew up this way and it just seems normal to me. Years ago when I used to staff for a leadership seminar one of the mottos was Givers Gain - and it's so so true!

Deepak Chopra in The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success talks about the dynamic interchange of the Universe and the success that comes with giving without asking anything in return. I sure want my Karma to be positive.

Debe there is no better investment than giving to others.  What we receive in return is overwhelming.

The very first office I worked in during the 1980s, was filled with altruistic agents, who took me under their wing, mentored and supported me until I thrived.  I will be forever grateful to them.

Debe, gosh this is spoken so eloquently. It shows me what a big heart you have for humanity. No surprise, actually! 

And helping others can be done in the most simple terms...giving someone you don't know a compliment that you truly feel. Waving! At everyone!! You don't need money to give back.
