We are all in this together. Together, we all not only survive, but thrive. We can all meet and beat any challenges out there because there is a tremendous synergy or collective power that lies within each one of us that is multiplied when we work as a team in our community. However, these superpowers, unfortunately, will lie dormant in us and refuse to come to the surface if we don’t fully participate in life through helping out.
Don’t hide from responsibility. Don’t point the finger at others expecting them to be the one to get the magic started. It should be every one of us, including you, who fully participates in life and gets the magic started through the selfless act of helping others in our communities. After all, making ourselves responsible for this action simply means taking the word responsible and breaking it up to the concept of being able to respond. And we all want that power don’t we? Being able to respond to whatever need arises?
Oh, by the way, in responding to the needs of our society we are not really walking in no-man’s land here. If we were to take a closer look at this helping thing, I think we would all see that there are already a lot of people paving the way to greatness for us within our communities. They do this through helping others. Trust me; through helping out, we won’t be doing anything new or never tried before. It’s not odd or difficult to lend a helping hand. This helping out within our communities that I am talking about is called service leadership. Simply put, it is leadership through service.
Now teens, go learn, lead, and lay the way to a better world for all of us. Remember to be actively seeking ways to help out in your communities, and before you know it your helpful ways will turn you too into one of those community leaders like our firemen, nurses, or coaches. And once again, thanks in advance for all that you do, and all that you will do…
