Do you want to make a difference in the world?
In this episode, I share my conversation with Richard Lui. He explains how living selflessly can change your own life for the better too!
Ordinary heroes can make small, practical choices and stop this selfish pandemic. Here are some tips on how and why living selflessly can bring joy despite the difficulty. Living selflessly is not easy, but it can be rewarding. It’s about giving up what we think we deserve and instead focusing on what others need. We all have something to offer that could bring joy into someone else’s life.
Living selflessly will help you find happiness in difficult times because it's not about what you get out of it but what you give to others that counts. You'll be surprised at how much more fulfilling your life becomes when you start giving back without expecting anything in return. So go ahead, do something nice for someone today!
