How many happy, selfish people do you know?.Avoiding Tunnel Vision:.A man asked Dr. Carl Menninger, "What would you advise a person to do if he felt a nervous breakdown coming on?" Most people expected him to reply, "Consult a psychiatrist." To their astonishment he replied, "Lock up your house, go across the railroad tracks, find someone in need and do something to help that person.
"."Nobody cares how much you know until they know how much you care" (John Cassis). Life is a lot like the game of tennis. Those who don't serve well, end up losing.If you are dissatisfied with your lot in life, build a service station on it.
A good way to forget about your troubles is to help others out of theirs. Almost all of our unhappiness is a result of selfishness. Instead, think in terms of what the other person wants, not just what you want. It is absolutely true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed."The measure of life is not in its duration, but in its donation.
Everyone can be great because everyone can serve." (Peter Marshall). No one achieves greatness without being of service. Never reach out your hand unless you're willing to extend an arm and your heart. Happiness is like potato salad - when shared with others, it's a picnic.- John Mason, from his latest book, Dare To Be.
