Why It Pays to Be a Helper

Visualize the professional and financial success you want to achieve. While hard work and discipline will certainly help you accomplish your goals, one habit is also just as valuable to you: a habit of helpfulness, both to yourself and others. 

Approaching the world as a helper will enable you to: 

Nurture Your Health & Negate Stress.  

The sooner you accept that you need help along your journey — both now and in the future — the better. Start by acting as your own ally; stay mindful of your physical and mental needs on a weekly basis. Don’t ignore them! You need and deserve self-care. Taking care of yourself is vital if you want to think and perform at your best each day.

Make Meaningful Connections. 

Seek opportunities to make a positive impact on people’s lives. Push yourself to enter new spaces and meet new people. Let people know that you are happy to help them with your time and services. Reaching outside yourself is nourishing and can give you greater perspective on your own goals and struggles. The more people you meet, the more opportunities you’ll have to share your professional services with people who can truly benefit from them.

Make a Real Impact. 

Actively listen when people are talking to you. Show genuine interest in their lives. Ask questions. If you offer help without listening, you run the risk of giving help the other person doesn’t need. Listening and engaging will enable you to identify the support and services people need and want. The more you listen, the more helpful you can be.


When you support others, you create bonds that you may be thankful for later in life. You never know what challenge or change you may someday face; even as you maintain a habit of connecting with and helping others, remember that there’s nothing wrong with asking for help with your own journey. Success is often a team effort; stay open to opportunities to learn and grow from peers and mentors during every phase of life. It will take time and plenty of help to achieve your goals, now and in the future.
