Helping Others

Excerpt from The Happiness Transformation by Andrew Lawrence

Part of true happiness involves being of service. Being of service to others. Being of service means helping others. Your personal fulfillment involves you being of service to others. Without that factor, without being of service and helping others, you will never feel totally happy, you will always feel incomplete and somewhat unfulfilled, as if "something" is missing from your life. Being of service, helping others, is a large and important part of higher and deeper happiness and complete fulfillment.

There are many ways you can help others. Being of service to others can take many forms and can be active or passive. Active service can be volunteering or donating your time through organizations that help others. You could volunteer at your local soup kitchen, homeless shelter, Salvation Army, Red Cross, hospital or one of the many charitable organizations in your area. Or you could donate money. Or you could make an effort to help people directly, by being available to people who need help and could benefit from your talents and experience and expertise. Lawyers do this when they supply their legal services pro bono, for free.

Each of us has a unique and special talent for something. Each of us has something that we love to do, that we do exceptionally well. That something, that natural talent and ability, is a good thing to use in helping others. And, in doing that, in helping others, you will be fulfilled, you will fulfill your higher purpose in life. It's not always about having professional experience and expertise or special education in a given field (such as law, medicine, finance, etc.), it's about helping others.

Throughout my life people have approached me for advice or understanding of their problems. I help them by understanding their problem, clarifying it, and exploring possible solutions with them. Apparently, I am good at this and have a natural talent for it, as people keep seeking me out for this. Including strangers. I have no formal training for it, do not do it for money and am careful not to render legal, medical or other licensable advice. Over my lifetime I have helped hundreds, maybe thousands, of people in this way. It seems to work; after talking with me about their problem they go away feeling better. This is how I am of service to others, how I help others, how I fulfill my true purpose in life. And, I also write articles and books that can reach and help MORE people understand and improve their life. Or, in the case of this book, achieve the goal of life; happiness. What do I get from doing this, from being of service to others? A lot. I get a lot of satisfaction, a lot of happiness and I am fulfilling my life purpose.

"Everyone has a purpose in life ... a unique gift or special talent to give to others. And when we blend this unique talent with service to others we experience the ecstasy and exultation of our own spirit, which is the ultimate goal of all goals." --Deepak Chopra

However you are of service to others, do it gladly, do it selflessly, do it whenever you can. The reward you get for helping others, for being of service to others, is fulfillment ... a deep sense of purpose and happiness.

Being of service to others, helping others, can make YOU happy. And it can change the world.

The Happiness Transformation reveals simple, short, practical principles of how anyone, anywhere, anytime can be happy - NOW - and for the rest of their life. The principles in the book are based on decades of research and knowledge and these principles have personally worked for me for more than 30 years!

"A remarkable book for anyone, anywhere, anytime, who wants to be happy NOW!"

"WOW! It's easy to understand ... and it works!"

"What's in this book can make you happy for the rest of your life!"

"I wrote The Happiness Transformation (my 4th book) to transform people, and to transform the world. I wrote this book to help make the world a better place, a happier place, one person at a time." --Andrew Lawrence, Author

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
