A wise person once said, “Helping one person might not change the whole world, but it could change the world for one person.”

In a world often consumed by self-interest, the power of asking "How can I help?" stands as a beacon of empathy, connection, and positive change. By sincerely caring, actively listening, and providing support tailored to individual needs, we can make a profound impact on the lives of others. Whether it's through a small act of kindness or a significant contribution, this question has the potential to transform relationships, communities, and the way we perceive our own purpose. So, let us embrace the power of these words and use them to create a world where empathy and support are readily available to all.

Take a few moments today to think about the people around you.

  • Who could you help right away?
  • Who could you help next week or next month?
  • How could you help them?
  • What skills and resources do you have, and how can you leverage them to help?

Once you gain clarity, tap into the incredible power of those four words. Become a proactive helper and start making whatever contributions you can to people’s lives.
