We Need More Heroes: Help Others

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Life can get busy at times, we get caught up in the everyday moments, the everyday routine, work, eat, play, sleep... the list goes on.. When was the last time you stopped and thought about when you helped others? 

~ No Cape Required ~ 

You do help others, you just don't realize it sometimes, because the smallest ways of helping/serving others is usually forgotten. But let's slow things down a little more and take it frame by frame. We should all be making an impact in someone else's life on a daily basis, whether it's big or small. That's up to you. Sometimes the smallest thing can make the biggest impact. Think about how; some simple kind words, a returned smile, a friendly wave, a hug, helping clean-up, help lift something, pat on the back, these actions (and so many more) have made YOU feel in the past. But, now it's not just about how good you feel when you receive help or friendly gesture, etc. It's feels even better when you GIVE these positive actions and help forward these feelings to others.

Don't Forget, You Are A Good Person (So Pass It On) 

Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, "What's in it for me?" ~ Brian Tracy

We can all make a positive difference in the world everyday. Each one of you has a purpose in life, God has plan, but it is up to you and what you do along the way. The purpose of human life is to serve, show compassion, and the will to help others. I think one way you can help others is just by example. Lead by good example, stand up and help others, then truly you will Stand Out.
"Great HUGE opportunities to help others seldom come, but small ones surround us every day." ~ Sally Koch 

I urge you as you continue down your path to inspire, impact, help, give, enlighten as many people as you possibly can. The world needs more heroes & the best ones are the ones that go about his or her daily life routinely impacting/inspiring others. Help each other, Care for one another, Give Back, Inspire, Donate, Be Kind, Volunteer, Make Peace. ~ We Only Have, What We Give ~

No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.” ~Charles Dickens

Always remember;
“When a person is down in the world, an ounce of help is better than a pound of preaching.” ~ Edward G. Bulwer-Lytton

A Time For Change....

A Time For...
When you feel either weak, alone, afraid, uncertain of whether you've made the right decision in any aspect of life, just stop and think for a minute about you've at least MADE a decision and you are putting yourself out there (moving forward instead of standing still). 
Sometimes life can just  scare the bejesus out of you. Whether it's presents you questions and concerns that seem to big to be answered or possibly you find yourself in a new place, or new job or new outlook on life. When this scary moment is presented in your life, embrace because really that's when you truly know you're really living and can accomplish anything you seek out to accomplish and achieve.  
“Fear, uncertainty and discomfort are your compasses toward growth.”

No More Worries...
People (including myself) get so caught up in the everyday things, such as self-identity, how they look?, will this be accepted?  will I be accepted? what she/he think of me? what to wear? what to do? what to say? is this enough? or not enough?
This really all gets all bunched up into complete and utter "nothing-ness" of life, This is not what is important in life. These simple self-conceded thoughts and actions really don't matter or make an difference/impact on our day-to-day lives. We all get too self-involved in our own lives that we spend over 95% of each day living all about "you" and only "you". We all need to (including myself) stop and expand out of our personal shell or "frame of mind" 
Live for others, talk and have actions that benefit others, more importantly LISTEN to what they have to say instead of thinking of what you will say next. The clothes, the styles, the appearances  really don't matter in the end, it's the attitudes and connections you make along the way of your journey. 

"Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.” –Jim Rohn

& Not Losing Sight...
Sometimes we can get distracted by the little everyday problems, and more often than not, they pile up and it can get overwhelming. But fear not, "It's just a bad day, not a bad life"   Life may not always seem to be going right, things may not always be the best, but even if you can't see the truly great things in yourself and your life, remember there's always people around you that can see it in you. They believe in you, so believe in yourself, but also believe in others around you! 

To Feel Alive,
Life will scare you from time to time, and when it happens it may actually upset and worry you at the present time. But just know, that when it does, don't worry because it's a good thing!  It means "Things are a changing", That LIFE IS HAPPENING to you and you're right in the middle of it. When you truly get that moment of  being scared stiff from life and what will it bring, possibly get goosebumps and the hairs on your neck stand up. You will/may feel vulnerable, but trust me, You will feel more "Alive" than any other moment, so cherish the times and embrace the changes. Push forward and never stop seeking. 

....To Experience Change.
