How To Be Helpful to Others
Some people say the people who are helpful to others have a lot of time on their hands. This isn’t true at all as anyone can be helpful no matter how busy they are. We’ve all heard cases where someone falls on the street and people just walk past without offering help. They simply don’t want to get involved, they have their own problems to deal with and in their mind, they don’t have the time.
Change Your Attitude
This attitude is not good as it will only come back negatively to them in other ways. So we’ve seen how not helping others when you can have a negative impact on your life. When it comes to helping others, Karma plays a big part. If you help someone today then the odds that someone will help you at a later stage is highly likely. This is how Karma works; it’s like debt forgiveness in way. If you owe something then maybe this debt will be forgiven because you helped out someone in a similar situation in the past.
Is Being Helpful Practical?
Being helpful to others all the time is not practical in our modern world. We are all busy to some extent and so our time is precious. However it doesn’t mean we can’t help out from time to time. We could start by helping around the house on our days off. We could give our partner a break and do their chores for a change. Every little thing helps and this builds up over time and will eventually come back to you in a positive way at a later stage when you need help the most.
There’s nothing better than being helpful to others especially if you don’t know them. Were you ever in a situation whereby someone you didn’t even know went out of their way to help you? How did it make you feel? I bet you were amazed by what this person had done for you, you felt good about yourself and you felt good about the world. This is why helping people is so important, it gives us a community spirit and lets us know that we are not alone in this world; we have friends we have never even met all around us.
Is it a good thing to be helpful at work?
There are two sides to the coin here. If you’re too helpful to others at work then there are unscrupulous co-workers who will inevitably take advantage of your kind nature. My view is that the work place is a place where you make money so you can put food on your table, so be careful. You should only help out if it is credited to you at a later stage. You should not always be in a position to help out in work because you will be taken advantage of. Its better to have a positive attitude at work and get some respect.
Make sure that you only select certain people to help out if they are in a position to help you at a later stage. Also, only help out in certain areas of work if it’s a strategic advantage to your career at a later stage. It sounds bad but this is your workplace and not the outside world, its better to be positive bout it then hopeful about it.
You cannot afford to be a soft touch in the workplace because you’ll lose respect very quickly and it doesn’t matter how helpful you are, when it comes to letting people go, you’ll no doubt be first on the list. This is how it works I’m afraid so be careful who you give your time to in the workplace.
