Always teach and help each other.
If you know me, you know that I’m an avid golfer and I love to watch it on TV. Last year I was golfing with a friend of mine John and a friend of his who doesn’t play much golf. We were playing on a par 3 and John’s friend had just hit his second shot into the bunker by the green. He was not happy about being in the bunker so I gave him a tip before he hit his shot. I told him to pretend there was a tee under his ball and try to swipe it out from underneath it. He did just that and his ball popped up out of the bunker, onto the green and into the hole for a par 3. This was his only par of the day and I was happy to have helped him achieve it. He will remember this shot forever and it will keep him coming back to play this great game.
When we have the opportunity to help others, we should. Often times people are too concerned with themselves and cannot seem to humble themselves enough to help others. I was a technology teacher for two years, where I taught students how to use graphics programs. About a year later a student of mine contacted me to thank me and let me know that he created a logo for his friends family business.
This is why I love to teach and help others. My joy comes from their success. This is the same reason why I love photographing weddings. After I finish shooting and editing a wedding, my joy comes from the positive review I receive from the bride and groom, not from the money I make.
My mother has always helped others. She is one of the reasons why my business is successful today. She has encouraged me and always been there even when times got tough. She is my inspiration and the reason why I enjoy helping others today. I would love for the opportunity to one day be able to give back to her with early retirement.
Recently there was a young man by the name of Seth Machak who passed away from pneumonia. He loved to help others and do random acts of kindness. In honor of him, his family has set up a blog that encourages people to do Random Acts of Kindness and called it Random Acts of Sethness. You can read all the wonderful Random Acts of Sethness people have done for each other by clicking here.
I find this a positive way to keep Seth’s name alive.
How have you taught or helped somebody today?
I would like to encourage you to help each other in anyway possible.

In the words of Bill and Ted. “Be excellent to each other.”
