Making money is great.
Raising and giving time and money for great causes is better.
Making an impact on people all over the globe will empower your spirit and lift you up in ways that nothing else can.
Note to Self: Always do as much as you can for others.
If you are not making a profound and lasting difference for others -- than why are you here?
The psychologically healthiest people are those who spend regular time being mindful of how they can bring aid, comfort and assistance to those less fortunate.
"If you\'re not reaching into the lives of humankind in need, and making a radical positive impact on their lives, you\'re taking up too much room on the planet. As a psychologist, I acknowledge it is a matter of personal choice. As a Humanist I am not as understanding how someone can see others in need, and not be stirred to action from their very soul." -- Mark Skovron, Ph.D.
Make a list of what you want to do in your life that would be part of your social contract with the planet, and that would make a lasting difference for others.
Now make a plan to execute it.
Remember that those few who make it a priority to put others first are a very small club.
