There is a virtuous saying in the good book that says; give and it shall be given unto you, good measure, press down shaking together and running over, shall men give unto the bosom of the giver. Ann Frank quoted in his diary saying “no one has ever become poor by giving”. These noble quotes indicate helping others as a core value that is worth taking up as an attitude.
Few months after taking up an initiative geared at helping young people have access to opportunities that will add value to their lives and career. It was in that process that I stumbled on opening the City-fellowship (Hope Foundation) which I found as a valuable opportunity to myself.
I remember the words of one of my Teachers in High School which says “if you want to have a better understanding of your subjects, teach your class mates that have less understanding than you”; a quote of wisdom that implies you will only get better by helping a friend get better.
Bilgate today with other great people wouldn’t have come close to greatness if they have not in their desire to help make other people’s life better, invent great problems-solving technologies meant to make life easier and get work done faster.
As a matter of fact, the only virtue that has helped the world and make the world better is people and individuals creating value for lives, helping the helpless, raising hope for the hopeless, all of which have in turn increased self-worth, fulfillment and self-satisfaction of the Helpers. For instance, the Microsoft Boss (Bill Gate) at the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Forum was recently interviewed by young people on what has been his greatest achievement, Bill responded by saying The chance to be part of the software revolution empowering people” has been the biggest thing he had achieved. The empowerment of people has only placed Bill Gate as one of the richest persons in the world today.
Conclusively, helping others make one more valuable, bring satisfaction and gives a sense of fulfillment to them that have taken up helping others as a attitude.
