Learnathon 2013 – The Final Challenge (Part 2).

by Patrick Liew on December 6, 2013

I believe serving others for a good cause starts with the heart.

The heart of any social problem is ultimately a problem of the heart.

As an active volunteer, I always tell myself – when you meet somebody in need, see yourself in that person.

Can you feel the distress that he is going through?

I can because somebody helped me in the past.

That’s why if I search deep in my heart, I would feel that I’ve ‘met’ the person before.

It might not be the person’s fault for being in that position. That person could very well be me.

Just as I hope somebody would help me, I should help that person who is in need.

It may not be possible to help everybody in the world. At that moment, I can help one more person.

I can stretch out my hands to lift somebody up and out of the pits of life. It’s both giving back and paying it forward.

Perhaps, that’s why we have what we have today. They are gifts to us so that we can share them with others.

These gifts were given to us to not only help us to live. When we use them to bless others, we can live a better life.

We are wired to do well with our life in order to make something good out it.

When we do good and do it correctly, the positive feeling that we will enjoy is something that we cannot buy with any amount of money in the world.

Some of the greatest wealth-creation gurus believe that giving back is a basic criteria to achieving success.

If you don’t give, you will not leave room for better blessings to flow into your life.

All great religions teach you that you need to do good to others.

It’s a way of life and a universally-accepted principle to enjoy meaning, purpose, and fulfillment.

Our Creator designed you to love and care for others. It’s a natural trait and you can feel and know it.

Giving back is a vital part of your heart. It’s an integral part of your being.

When you deny it, you deny your God-given potential and talent. You gut the soul out from within you.

That’s why I have always said that the worst disease is not to have a heart for people and the environment.

In this regard, we may need to have a good ‘heart transplant’ every now and then.

There are many lives and things around us that are falling apart.

If we don’t do our part to fix them, they may come back to haunt and affect us.

All of us can do our part to make our world a better home. Every person matters.

Every part counts.

Please don’t do it because you feel that you are being forced to do it.

Don’t expect to be recognized or remembered. Don’t seek any rewards and returns.

When you do it out of a good heart, you will live a more meaningful, exciting, and fulfilling life.

The more we reach out to bless other lives, the richer and better our lives will become.
