I work in a helping profession. It’s a great joy, and I’m passionate about what I do. However, at the end of the day I realize I may not be helping at all. I recognize my efforts may be in vain. It’s easy to get discouraged sometimes.
It’s at those times I remember what someone once told me; “the only way to better the world is to improve yourself.” Wow! That part I can do. That’s something I can control, and there’s no argument there.
Take Away: The only way to better the world is to improve yourself.
