The Urge to Help Others
As humans, we have an urge – sometimes completely unconscious – to help other people to achieve their dreams or to reduce suffering. This is born into us, we can’t help it.
It’s a fact that we are at our highest level of fulfillment when we help other people. There is nothing more fulfilling than seeing that what we do helps somebody achieve their dream or to reduce suffering. The more directly related our actions are to that outcome, the more fulfilled we are.
Many people come to work so that they can do work that fulfills them. Their intentions are almost always to change some part of the world (no matter how big or small) in a positive direction.
