Today’s ‘Live Better With Willie Jolley’ Tip: Think about Helping Others

Today’s tip for success is focused on helping you overcome this challenging economy. It is taken from my new book, Turn Setbacks Into Greenbacks. This sounds so simplistic, but it is so incredibly impactful. Social scientists have found that changing your focus from yourself to helping others can be beneficial in beating the blues and overcoming depression. By looking at others and finding ways that you can help them, you can see that you are a valuable part of the culture and can become a helpful force of nature. Focusing your attention and energy on others can minimize your issues and help you realize how blessed you are.

It’s like the old saying: “I was feeling sorry for myself because I had no shoes until I met a person who had no feet.” If you deflect your attention from your own problems and open your eyes to the situations and circumstances of those around you, you will find an opportunity to help others and, while doing so, help yourself!
