According to Martin Luther King Jr’s question, life’s most persistent and urgent question is what are we doing for others? Have we, in any way that we can afford, done something for the well-being of others?
It’s the kind of striking question that can haunt you in the middle of your daily routine. You have been busy just surviving to take a minute out and think about whether your actions have contributed to the betterment of someone. You don’t need to be a conglomerate to help others; it would have been good if you were. However, nowadays, there are many ways to help people. Information, social campaigns and communities are all there to extend your will and expand your reach. Even in your most immediate environment, there is always a person who needs your help. Do you need an excuse to help others? If so, what is yours?
You just need to decide when you want to start doing something for others. Deciding when might be the hardest part. You might procrastinate; people always do. But the day when you decide to act may be the day when they are suffering the most, and your intervention could have enormously positive consequences. So, no matter what you do, how much cash you have in your bank account, or the level of your education, helping people transcends those normal criteria. It is also about timing and, most importantly, how badly you want to help others. It is still the first month of 2014, it is not late to include doing something for others among your New Year Resolutions!
