helping others can create a sense of joy and happiness.

Helping others is a powerful way to create a sense of joy and happiness in our lives. When we take the time to support those around us, we make a positive impact on their lives, and we also tap into our own sense of purpose and meaning.

Research shows that acts of kindness and generosity can activate reward centers in our brains, releasing feel-good chemicals like dopamine. This can lead to a natural high, often called a “helper’s high,” which can boost our mood and overall well-being.

In addition to the physiological benefits, helping others might improve our social connections and relationships. We can build stronger bonds and a greater sense of community by working together and supporting each other. This can lead to feelings of belonging and a deeper understanding of our shared humanity.

Overall, helping others can be a powerful way to create a sense of joy and happiness in our lives. Volunteering, donating to a cause, or simply lending a hand to a friend or neighbor, giving brings meaning and fulfillment to our lives while also positively impacting those around us.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
