That sounds rather cold but it’s closer to the truth than you might think. The tag line would be-unless I want to.
On a deep level everyone wants to make a contribution, leave their mark to society in some shape or form. So why doesn’t that just naturally happen? Why is it that groups and causes can ask for assistance but you don’t jump at the chance to help out?
The reason is simple. It doesn’t do anything for you. In order for you to want to be of service it not only has to be a cause that you’re passionate about, but be in the form of service that you want to give. The service could be hands on, coordinating, planning or handling the finances. Whatever you are best at is what will give you pleasure because then you know you gave your best. It is ONLY in that sequence of events that you will truly feel like you have contributed from your heart.
