5 Life Lessons On Being Selfless

(c) Dawgelene Sangster 2014

by Dawgelene “Dr Dawj” Sangster– I am a firm believer that we can all learn from any situation or event and in learning, we began to give of ourselves in helping others. I learned the below 5 lessons in life that I wanted to share in giving of yourself to help others.

Love Lesson– What love  do you have for others? Having a true love for others means being selfless and honestly caring about how someone feels, where they are, what they are doing, and if they are okay.

Persistence Lesson– Are you persistent when checking on the status your loved ones? Having persistence when it comes to others means that you will keep them at the front of your mind, you will check on them, and you will pray for the very best in them to come out. If you can’t find or reach them mentally, you will continue to search.

Listening Lesson– Do you truly listen when those you care about are speaking? Sometimes, people we know and love are hurting and dying on the inside. We oftentimes hear it, but then we don’t hear it because we don’t want to be bothered with the same old thing. Learn to develop a real listening ear and heart so you can really hear those faint cries when they are weak.

Action Lesson– Do you take action when you know there is something wrong? Sometimes, we know there is something wrong, yet we do nothing to help change things. I am not telling you to jump every time you know something is going on, because you will burn yourself out doing that. But when you can help bring change with your positive actions and you are led to do it, be you willing to yield yourself as a vessel.

Chance Lesson– Are you willing to take chances and step outside of your comfort zone?  Sometimes, we will be faced with situations where we will need to gamble against low odds, but it will be worth it if we believe in possibilities. Take the chance on winning.

What others lessons have your learned in life? Please share them with us. Would you be willing to share this information with someone else?

We want to hear your thoughts!
