The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
My wife and kids went on a Mission Trip with our church last week. They spent the week in the small town of Middleburgh, NY with about 30 members of our church. They helped with recovery efforts on a neighborhood destroyed by hurricane flooding. I’m so incredibly inspired by them, and proud of them.
True leaders understand that leadership is not about them but about those they serve. It is not about exalting themselves but about lifting others up.
-Sheri L. Dew
The best way to not feel hopeless is to get up and do something. Don’t wait for good things to happen to you. If you go out and make some good things happen, you will fill the world with hope, you will fill yourself with hope.
The most worth-while thing is to try to put happiness into the lives of others.
