Albert Einstein said, “Only a life lived for others is a life worthwhile”
One important thing life taught me is that whatever was given to me I have to show gratitude by giving back. It’s a simple act that has a lot of positive effect on me and the people around!
One thing I remember; I was a teenager and that was my neighbor who taught me how to drive. Now, he is an old man and can’t drive by himself anymore, so when sometimes I give him a ride to shop for his groceries or just take him out for some fresh air, it gives me a huge smile on my heart and face! Moreover, it helps me reach happiness, positiveness and boosts my self-esteem!
Boost Self Esteem:
What a great feeling it is to draw a smile on someone’s face especially if you do something for others that they can’t do it themselves
By giving back, you prove to the person or community that you are thankful and that they made an impact in your life and now you do the same.
Leading by example:
If you give back , this will inspire your colleagues, kids, and other surroundings by doing the same.
Giving back can be done in many ways, and this following quote by Mother Teresa explains why is giving back important and different ways in which it can be done.
“At the end of life we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, how many great things we have done. We will be judged by ‘I was hungry and you gave me to eat, I was naked and you clothed me, I was homeless and you took me in.’ Hungry not only for bread — but hungry for love. Naked not only for clothing — but naked for human dignity and respect. Homeless not only for want of a room of bricks — but homeless because of rejection”
